About this Product
Idaho was the third state to be honored in 2007 on a state quarter. The Idaho State Quarter is the 43rd coin in the overall collection. Idaho was the 43rd state to join the union. The Idaho State quarter was preceded in 2007 by coins for Montana and Washington, and it will be followed by coins for Wyoming and Utah. Five coins are released each year, and each coin is minted in a strictly limited edition of only about 10 weeks. Each coin is struck at the Philadelphia and the Denver Mint. The Idaho State Quarter design was chosen from among hundreds of suggestions submitted by state residents to the Idaho Commission on the Arts. The central Image on the Idaho State Quarter is a peregrine falcon; it is the official state raptor. The design is completed with a map of Idaho, including a star to indicate the location of capital at Boise, and the state motto meaning May it be forever.

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. 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.
