Overview

A unique event in the history of the United States coinage began in 1999, when the U.S. Mint released the first five issues out of a total of 50 different quarters commemorating the 50 United States. The 50 State Commemorative Quarter Program (also known as the Statehood Quarter Program) is a circulating coin program consisting of Washington quarters with 50 unique reverse designs, each one commemorating a different state of the Union.

Released to the public at the rate of five different quarters per year for ten years, the coins are issued in the same order thae states entered the Union or, in the case of the thirteen original colonies, in the order they ratified the Constitution.

The reverse designs, proposed by each state and approved by the Secretary of the Treasury, are produced by the U.S. Mint staff engravers. Quarters for general circulation are struck both at Philadelphia and Denver Mints, while clad Proof and silver Proof versions are struck at the San Francisco Mint.

In order to provide as much room as possible on the reverse for the states' designs, the legends UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUARTER DOLLARhave been moved to the obverse. To fit them there, Washinton's portrait has been slightly reduced in size, and the date moved to the reverse.

    Excellent Folder for all collectors

    This folder is excellent for collecting the 50 state quarters, It contains one slot for each state. It is very durable and will last well beyond the ten years needed for the entire collection. Highly recommended. I have bought six of these so far, and am going to buy more.

    Littleton Coin Folder

    I have seen some nicer looking coin folders available, but none of them are as well-made. The really nice thing about this particular folder is that you don't have to worry about your quarters falling out like they do in so many other folders. Another nice thing, on the very first page, there are two slots: one for the old quarter face of Washington, and another for the new one so that the differences can be seen. There are even enlarged pictures with arrows pointing to the differences that have short, concise explanations about those differences.

    The best quarter folder available!

    Littleton's 50 state quarter folder is a great value! It is organized by year, making it easy to use. The materials seem to be very high quality -- sturdy enough to last for the entire coin series. At under $5, I highly recommend it for everyone's holiday shopping list!

    Great Value! Nice Product!

    I use all Littleton's green books for my coins. I think for the money they are the best on the market. They are also made in America which I think is important when collecting U.S.coins. The best part is the price!Great for gifts... especially when you fill them with the coins.

    more from this reviewer

    A book of priceless gems...a piece of U.S. history.

    There's nothing better than giving your grandson or granddaughter a collection of state quarters for their birthday or any other occasion. I know because we did it. The fifty states quarter folder is archival quality and has a place to display an older quarter plus the new fifty state quarters so that you can study the differences between them. Wonderful! Brings out the brightest smile in children and adults alike.

    Great value!

    I purchased several of these as a party favor for my 8 year old son's birthday. The boys all completed a treasure hunt and found these books at the end along with several state quarters to get them started. They were all very excited and are now enthusiastic about collecting coins. The product itself is sturdy and very easy to use.
