The Washington 50 States Quarters

The 50 States Quarters can count as one of the most much anticipated collectible coins. Americans have been eagerly searching commemorative coin that would excite the nation. Finally, the United States Commemorative Quarter Act was passed on October 20, 1996. The said act, signed by President Clinton provided a feasibility wherein each of the 50 states of the United States will be recognized through a commemorative quarter coin.

The 50 States Program will celebrate each state by creating a quarter coin featuring George Washington on the obverse, while a unique commemorative design on the reverse. For the obverse, the designers are John Flanagan and William Cousins. For the reverse, each of the 50 states is responsible for providing a design that would represent their state.

Each year, a group consisting of 5 coins will be issued from 1999 up until its completion in 2008. The public proved to love the idea, as the 50 States Coins received positive reviews, thus millions were minted for collectors.

Collecting State Quarters

One should know that there are four types of State Quarters – the business strikes or the general circulating coins, the satin finish coins, the copper-nickel clad and the silver clad coins.

As for error coins, the State Quarters have a number of errors that collectors would enjoy collecting. You can check the following for the list.

Spitting Horse – The 1999 Delaware State Quarter had the horse with extra metal on its mouth, making it look like if it is spitting. This error coin can be between $2-$20 depending on the condition and die crack of the coin.

High and Low Leaf Varieties – The 2004 Wisconsin State Quarters have the leaves in the reverse going in different directions and can cost between $50-$100.

IN GOD WE RUST – The motto for the 2005 Kansas Quarters was missing the letter T in Trust because of grease filling in the said letter and can cost up to $100.

Extra Large Trees and Double Dies – The 2005 Minnesota State Quarters have tree variations identified making the trees appear extra trees in the image that can cost $10-$300 or more.

Cud Errors – The 2006 Colorado State Quarters has an unintentional bump on the reverse caused by a dent in the die used. The size of the cud varies, and cost can be between $5-$35.

Double Die Reverse – As for the 2007 Wyoming State Quarters, the saddle horn has a doubling which is, unfortunately, hard to spot.

Extra Cactus Leaves – The die used in the 2008 Arizona Stsate Quarters broke, causing extra cactus leaves on the reverse. Such coins cost between $10-$20.

Nickel Planchets – State Quarters on Nickel Plankets are common during the 1999 – when the State Quarters were first minted although they show up in any year. Such coins were accidentally struck and minted on nickel planchets. Instead of its diameter 24.3mm, those stuck in nickel plankets were 21.2mm in diameter. Values will depend on the condition of the coin but reach over a thousand dollars.

Other Errors: There are other errors through the years like die breaks, die cuts, grease strike-through errors, missing layers, off-center striking and planchet clipping. Prices for such varies but can very well be between $5-$300 or more.

One can choose to collect 50 State Quarters by design, meaning one state coin minted from Philadelphia or Denver, by the same design from the two mints or as date sets. For those who have limited funds, collectors often choose date sets because they are far more inexpensive.
