New Commerative Quarters
Hit the Market

Finally after approximately 20 years thanks to the 50 states programs act the quarter has a new look. Signed on December 1, 1997 by President Bill Clinton the 50 State Program Act was created to honor the 50 states that ratified the constitution and joined the union. Each state has it's own commerative coin and unique design which is voted for. The commerative coins are being released in the order that the states joined the union and is an ongoing program for the next 10 years with 5 commerative coins being released each year. The first coin of 1999 that was released was Delaware. This coin has George Washington on one side and on the reverse side depicts Caesar Rodney on Horseback. Delaware choose to honor Rodney on their coin because of his "historic ride to break the tie among delaware's delegates in favor of the Declaration of Independence" Pennsylvania the second state to ratify the constitution and join the union is also available. Expect to this quarter more abundantly by the summer. The Pennsylvania Quarter has the "Commonwealth," the statue which is on top the Pennsylvania capital dome, an outline of the state, the state motto and a keystone. Three other commerative quarters are scheduled for release sometime in 1999. These are, New Jersey, Georgia and Connecticut. For more information about these new quarters please go to:
