About this Product
 
The second State Quarter of the year 2003 honored Alabama and was released into circulation by the U.S. Mint on March 17, 2003. Alabama was the 22nd state to join the Union, so the Alabama State Quarter was the 22nd coin in the series. The Alabama State Quarter depicts Keller sitting with a book on her lap. She learned to read with Braille, and her name appears in Braille above the English Inscription. A long leaf pine branch (state tree) is on the left, while magnolias (state flower) are on the right. The Spirit of Courage banner at the bottom celebrates Kellers unique place in Alabama and U.S. history.

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. 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.
