Colorado State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Colorado State Quarter.

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

The Colorado Quarter is the 38th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on June 14, 2006. It was the 38th State Quarter issued, because Colorado was the 38th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Colorado Quarter mintage for circulation was 569,000,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Colorado would rank 24th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Colorado Quarter coin was engraved by Norman E. Nemeth and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Colorado and just below it the year 1876, which is the year Colorado became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Colorado is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2006.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Colorado shows longs Peak.

The banner text reads "Colorful Colorado".

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