Arizona State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Arizona State Quarter.

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

The Arizona Quarter is the 48th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on June 2, 2008. It was the 48th State Quarter issued, because Arizona was the 48th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Arizona Quarter mintage for circulation was 509,600,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Arizona would rank 15th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Arizona Quarter coin was engraved by Joseph F. Menna and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Arizona and just below it the year 1912, which is the year Arizona became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Arizona is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2008.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Arizona shows Grand Canyon and saguaro.

The banner text reads "Grand Canyon State".

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

The Arizona 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 Arizona coin is made of 91.67% copper and 8.33% Nickel. The Arizona silver proof coins were made with 90% silver and 10% copper.
