Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution on December 7, 1787, so it is the first coin to introduce the 50 State Quarters Program. The Delaware coin features Caeser Rodney, Delaware's most renowned patriot. On July 2, 1776, Rodney rode 80 miles to Philadelphia on horseback to vote in favor of the Declaration of Independence and thereby breaking the tie among Delaware's delegates and proclaiming Delaware as a supporter of the document. He was one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence. The Delaware Quarter shows Rodney on horseback to symbolize his historic ride.

These "Mini" bags are filled with uncirculated quarters in the amount of $25 (100 quarters) and sealed by the US Mint with a special label or tag. Like the special Government Roll Pairs, these "Mini" bags are collected based on the final Mintage figure that are produced during the 10 week period the US Mint issues the quarter and the popularity of the state and or design.

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. On the front, otherwise known as the obverse, the specific mintmarks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait. The small "P" indicates the Philadelphia Mint and the small "D" refers to the Denver.
