The New Hampshire Quarter is the ninth quarter to enter into the historic Americas State Quarter Collection. When New Hampshire ratified the United States Constitution on June 21,1788, it became a pivotal ninth state to do so. According to the terms of the Constitution, a minimum of nine states were needed to make the Constitution a legally-binding contract. Therefore, New Hampshires vote was a monumental turning point in history. The New Hampshire State Quarter features one of the states greatest natural attractions - a rock formation known as The Old Man of the Mountain, found on Mount Cannon in the Franconia Notch gateway to northern New Hampshire. In addition to the showing of the rock formation, it also features the state motto. Live Free or Die. The nine stars on the left side of the coin symbolize New Hampshire as the ninth state. This New Hampshire 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. 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.
