Overview

History is all around us—even in the spare change jangling in your purse or pocket. For the past decade, the U.S. Mint has offered America a pocketful of history through its popular 50 State Quarters® Program.

A Pocketful of History tells the story behind each state’s quarter: how each state chose its design; what is important about the people, scenes, and themes depicted on the coins; and what the collection tells us about ourselves. It’s an entertaining and enriching journey through four hundred years of America—in twenty-five-cent doses.

This updated paperback edition will include the U.S. Mint’s new quarters honoring Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and four other territories.
