Alabama State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Alabama State Quarter.

You have come to the right place if you are looking for information about the Alabama Quarter from the 50 State Quarter Program. The Alabama Quarter was issued by the United States Mint to commemorate the state of Alabama. For your convenience, you can see a picture of the Alabama Quarter on the right.

The Alabama Quarter is the 22nd quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on March 17, 2003. It was the 22nd State Quarter issued, because Alabama was the 22nd state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Alabama Quarter mintage for circulation was 457,400,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Alabama would rank 5th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

Like all commemorative State Quarters, the obverse side of the Alabama Quarter shows President Washington, but it is the reverse side of the coin we will focus on here.

The Alabama Quarter coin was engraved by Norman E. Nemeth and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Alabama and just below it the year 1819, which is the year Alabama became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Alabama is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2003.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Alabama shows Helen Keller, longleaf pine branch, and magnolia blossoms.

The banner text reads "Spirit of Courage" and the inscription reads "Helen Keller" in standard print and Braille.

The 50 quarters from this program were issued between 1999 and 2008. Both the Philidelphia and the Denver Mint made the Alabama circulated coins. The San Francisco Mint was the only Mint that made the proof and silver proof Alabama coins.

The Alabama coin weights 5.67 grams, its diameter is 24.26 mm (0.955 inches), and its thickness is 1.75 mm (0.069 inches). Furthermore, the Alabama coin is made of 91.67% copper and 8.33% Nickel. The Alabama silver proof coins were made with 90% silver and 10% copper.
