Description
 
The Maine State Quarter is the 23rd coin in the historic series; it is also the third State Quarter of 2003. Maines State Quarter design shows the lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, located in New Harbor. In the ocean to the right of the lighthouse there is a schooner that resembles Victory Chimes, the last of Maines legendary fleet of sailing ships known as windjammers. The schooner symbolizes Maines Traditional maritime industries. The Maine State Quarter was the first U.S. coin to depict a lighthouse. It was also the third State Quarter to feature a sailing ship, following the 2000 Virginia and 2001 Rhode Island coins.

This Maine State quarter is independently certified by ICG as a Mint State 66. Uncirculated coins are graded on a scale of 60 to 70 -- with 70 being perfect.

In December 1997, America's most adventurous coin program became a reality when President Clinton signed legislation authorizing the U.S. Mint to issue the innovative 50 State Quarters collection. Starting in January 1999, each of the 50 states in the Union will be honored on a unique Quarter Dollar commemorative coin. Five states will be featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. Due to the aggressive minting schedule, each State Quarter will be minted for only about 10 weeks. As a result, mintages of each quarter only are to be just a fraction of the "normal" quarters are. Regular issue coins will be minted at both the Philadelphia and the Denver Mints. The mint marks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait on the obverse: the small "P" indicates the Philadelphia Mint and the small "D" refers to the Denver.
