The Virginia State Quarter is the fifth and final coin of the 2000 set of Americas State Quarters Program and the tenth coin overall since the series started in 1999. The Virginia State Quarter honors the 400th Anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in 1607. It depicts the three sailing ships that brought the first settlers to Jamestown, Susan Constant, Godspeed and the Discovery. Virginia proved to be one of the most important colonies in Americas history. It was home to such visionary leaders as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the men who inspired political and military action in the fight for freedom. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights also all had their beginnings in Virginia.

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.
