Connecticut State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Connecticut State Quarter.

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

The Connecticut Quarter is the 5th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on October 12, 1999. It was the 5th State Quarter issued, because Connecticut was the 5th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Connecticut Quarter mintage for circulation was 1,346,624,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Connecticut would rank 49th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Connecticut Quarter coin was engraved by T. James Ferrell and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Connecticut and just below it the year 1788, which is the year Connecticut became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Connecticut is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 1999.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Connecticut shows Charter Oak.

The inscription reads "The Charter Oak".

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

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