Description
 
New Jersey is the third coin honored in the State Quarter Program. New Jersey ratified the Constitution on December 18, 1787. It is preceeded by Delaware and Pennsylvania. The New Jersey commemorative quarter features a rendering of George Washington crossing the Delaware River. It is based on the 1851 painting by Emanuel Leutz and shows Washington standing in his boat accompanied by members of the Colonial Army. Of special note, the obverse also features a portrait of George Washington - making this a rare example of a circulating coin honoring the same person on both the obverse and the reverse. The only other example in American coinage is the Lincoln Cent with the Lincoln Memorial on the reverse.

Each uncirculated quarter is layered 7 times in pure 24 karat gold. 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.
