In 1999 America started a 10-year celebration of the states that make up our great nation. The 50 State Quarters Program commemorated each state in the order that it joined the Union. Five new quarter dollar coins were issued every year from 1999 through 2008. Each has a unique reverse design symbolic of its state’s history, traditions, culture, or natural environment.
In late 2007, Congress approved another coinage series for the quarter dollar, to start in 2009. The new program gave us quarters for the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories: the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the United States Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
