Description
 
The fourth Quarter Dollar in the U.S Mint historic 50 States series honors Georgia, the fourth state to ratify the Constitution on January 2, 1788. The Georgia Commemorative Quarters central design is a peach, a fruit long associated with the state, within an outline of the state boarder. Live oak springs, symbolic of the state tree, surround the design. Draped across the top of the design is a banner bearing the state motto, Wisdom, Justice, Moderation.

Each uncirculated quarter is layered 7 times in pure platinum. Each coin is encapsulated to protect it's condition.

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.
