What is a 50 state quarters collection?

Quick Answer

The 50-state quarters collection is a set of 50 quarters which commemorate each of the 50 states in the nation. The 10-year program started in 1999 with the Delaware quarter being the first one minted and ended in 2008 with the production of the Hawaii coin.

Full Answer

Quarters for each state were made for 10 weeks before production was stopped on that quarter and started on the next. The quarters were introduced in the order in which their corresponding states entered the Union. A unique design representing the state appears on the coin's reverse side. The image of George Washington appears as usual on the obverse side.

    What are some valuable quarters?

    A:

    Many U.S. quarters carry a premium over their face value because of their silver content. Among them are Washington quarters minted before 1964. Other valuable quarters include older quarters, such as the Barber quarter, minted between 1892 and 1916, and the Standing Liberty quarter, produced between 1916 and 1930. A valuable recent quarter is the special Bicentennial quarter minted from 40 percent silver.

    Are pre-1964 quarters rare?

    A:

    Most pre-1964 quarters in circulation are not very rare unless they date to before 1932. Those produced between 1932 and 1964, often called Washington quarters, contain silver. They are therefore worth more than their face value. As of 2014, most quarters dated between 1932 and 1964 are worth $3.70.
