Arkansas State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Arkansas State Quarter.

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

The Arkansas Quarter is the 25th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on October 20, 2003. It was the 25th State Quarter issued, because Arkansas was the 25th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Arkansas Quarter mintage for circulation was 457,800,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Arkansas would rank 6th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Arkansas Quarter coin was engraved by John Mercanti and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Arkansas and just below it the year 1836, which is the year Arkansas became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Arkansas 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 Arkansas shows diamond, rice stalks, and mallard flying above a lake.

There is no inscription or banner on this coin.

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

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