About The 50 State Quarters Program

There were fifty State Quarters brought out by the U.S. Mint between the years of 1999 and 2008. The program was thought out as a way to attract a new generation of people that enjoyed collecting coins. It became the most popular program in the history of coin collecting for the public. The U.S. Mint allowed five quarters to be released every year. These coins were released in a specific order of how the states approved the constitution. Every quarter was designed with one of the states in mind providing the history, symbols, and tradition of each state with people, flags, and various images.

The quarter designs of each state were well thought out by each one the states. A few designs were chosen and then one was selected among them as being the quarter for the state. The governor normally made the final decision of the design of which quarter to use. In some states, the citizens would choose the final selection of the quarter. People from each state collected the fifty quarters in the order in which they came out. The 50 State Quarters Program was considered to be very popular in the United States.

At the end of 2008 all fifty quarters were released out into the public. The demand for people to collect all of the quarters for the states was great. Especially in the early part, when the program first started. People liked collecting the quarters from each state and put them in the available albums made to hold all fifty of the quarters.
