The California State Quarter marks the start of the seventh year in the State Quarters series. California was the 31st state to join the Union and therefore the 31st coin in the overall series. California State Quarter design honors John Muir and Yosemite National Park. The coin design shows Muir in Yosemite National Park, with the monolithic granite headwall known as Half Dome in the background. Also shown is a California condor, a huge bird with a wingspan of up to nine feet that was once nearly extinct.

This California State quarter is an uncirculated coin from the Denver Mint. Please keep the coins in their protective airtite coin holder provided to maintain their uncirculated 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.
