Description
 
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 were featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. On the front, otherwise known as the obverse, the mintmarks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait. The small "S" indicates San Francisco Mint.
The West Virginia State Quarter was the fifth and final State Quarter issued in 2005. It also completes the 7th year in the original ten-year collection that will eventually honor all 50 states. West Virginia was the 35th state, so this coin is the 35th overall in the collection. The West Virginia State Quarter celebrates the state's natural beauty as well as one of America's greatest engineering feats. The New River Gorge Bridge rises 876 feet above New River, and at 3,030 feet long it is the world's largest steel span bridge.

Each coin is encapsulated - please keep the coins in their protective coin holder to maintain their condition.
