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 were honored on a unique Quarter Dollar commemorative coin. As a result, mintages of each quarter only are to be just a fraction of the "normal" quarters are. The mint marks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait on the obverse: the small "P" indicates the Philadelphia Mint and the small "D" refers to the Denver.

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.

Each paper wrapped roll contains 40 uncirculated quarters. The roll is encased in a plastic tube, and housed in an officially licensed US Mint album. 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!
