U.S. States State Quarters
As part of a U.S. initiative to encourage state pride and to revamp our dated state quarter, quarters featuring symbols from each state where created by the U.S. Mint. Quarters were created for all 50 states, Washington D.C., and all U.S. Territories.
State quarters were first released in 1999 at the turn of the millennium. Five quarters were released each year, except for the final year when 6 quarters for each of the U.S. Territories were released. In 2009 the last quarters were released. In total, 56 State Quarters were minted.
The state quarters program was widely popular. Today, state quarters make up a majority of the quarters in circulation. There have been over 35,433,600,000 state quarters minted to date worth a total of $8.86 billion.
