About the 50 Statehood, D.C., and Territorial Quarters Collection

1999 to 2009

The 50 States Commemorative Coin Program Act was signed by President Bill Clinton on December 1, 1997.  It called for the replacement of the design on the reverse side of the quarter dollar with designs representing each of the 50 states.  Five quarter dollars with distinctive reverses were released each year, in the order in which the states joined the Union.  The program began with the Delaware quarter in 1999 and ended with the Hawaii quarter in 2008. 

The design-selection progress varied somewhat across the series.  Generally, each state’s governor selected a series of designs or design concepts from many public submissions.  A government-appointed committee approved the final design, with a Mint artist either developing from an existing image or created based on a chosen concept. 

The obverse design is a modification of John Flanagan’s George Washington quarter design.  Legislation allowed the Mint to move the inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the words QUARTER DOLLAR from the reverse to the obverse.

The reverse designs also required repositioning of mandated legends:  the name of the state and the year it attained statehood appear along the top border, while the words E PLURIBUS UNUM appear along the bottom border just beneath the year of issue. 

The circulating commemorative quarters are produced at the Philadelphia Mint (P mintmark) and the Denver Mint (D mintmark).  Proof quarters are produced at the San Francisco Mint (S mintmark). 

An additional, one-year program of commemorative quarters honor the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands) in 2009.  The obverse continues the statehood quarters design, and the reverse depicts some aspect of history, tradition, or nature for D.C. or one of the territories.
