Overview

The U.S. Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program, which ran from 1999-2008, was the most successful coin program in history, kicking off a collecting craze unlike anything ever seen in the coin world. The final coin in the program, Hawaii, will be released in August 2008, after which quarters will revert to their pre-1999 designs. All 50 of the collectible quarters are featured in America’s State Quarters, by numismatics expert David Ganz. As a charter member of the Coin Advisory Committee to Congress and the U.S. Mint, Ganz deserves “the lion’s share of the credit for making the 50 State Quarters program a reality” according to Philip Diehl, the Director of the United States Mint.

Information for each state quarter includes:

• Facts about the state (motto, bird, flower, etc)
• History of the design
• Mintage figures
• Grading hints
• Common mint errors
• Investment potential

In addition, the book features behind-the-scenes information about how and why the program was created, as well as how to get the most value from your collection.
