How can you make something better than the 50 State Quarter Program? Here's how !!
There were many reasons for the success of the State Quarter program in 1999. The top two - the design ( each state had their own theme ), and the limited production - only being made for less than 11 weeks.
A 4-piece set honoring the State of New Hampshire. This set includes an Uncirculated Philadelphia and Denver New Hampshire Series I State Quarter (issued in 2000) as well as an Uncirculated Philadelphia & Denver Series II White Mountain National Park Quarter (issued in 2013). Each quarter in this Series 1 & 2 set is uncirculated and presented in our custom lens display. A certificate of authenticity is included which features a detailed descriptions of each Quarter's design.
Series I started in 1999 when the U.S. Mint embarked on the 50 State Quarters collection. Starting in January 1999, each of the 50 states in the Union were honored on a unique Quarter Dollar coin. Five quarters were featured each year, each struck for only 12 weeks. They were released in the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. The program ran until 2009, and included Washington D.C. and the five territories.
Series II started in 2010.To differentiate the 2nd quarter the US Mint titled this new series "America the Beautiful Quarters" or "National Parks". Five quarters are being released each year, just as in Series I. Under this program, five new reverse designs will appear on the quarter-dollar each year beginning in 2010 and through 2021.
Series II honors 56 national parks and other national sites in each state, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories - Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, United States Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands. The coins in Series II will be issued in the order in which the featured site was first established as a national park or site.
