Florida State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Florida State Quarter.

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

The Florida Quarter is the 27th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on March 29, 2004. It was the 27th State Quarter issued, because Florida was the 27th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Florida Quarter mintage for circulation was 481,800,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Florida would rank 10th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Florida Quarter coin was engraved by T. James Ferrell and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Florida and just below it the year 1845, which is the year Florida became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Florida is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2004.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Florida shows Spanish galleon, cabbage palmettos, and Space Shuttle.

The inscription reads "Gateway to Discovery".

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

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