Description
 
North Carolina was the 12th state of the original 13 colonies to ratify the Constitution. As a result, it is the 12th state to be honored with a unique coin in the Commemorative 50 States Quarter Program, initiated by the U.S. Mint. North Carolina selected the Wright Brothers first airplane flight in 1903 for the coins design. The design is based upon a photograph that was actually taken during the famous first flight, capturing an image of Wilbur, Orvilles brother, running along side the plane.

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.
 
This item contains Philadelphia and Denver rolls. Each paper wrapped roll contains 40 uncirculated quarters. These rolls are encased in  plastic tubes, and housed in an officially licensed US Mint albums. Please keep the coins in their protective tube holder provided to maintain their uncirculated condition.

The 50 State Quarter program is the most popular quarter collectible in the world!
