Georgia State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Georgia State Quarter.

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

The Georgia Quarter is the 4th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on July 19, 1999. It was the 4th State Quarter issued, because Georgia was the 4th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Georgia Quarter mintage for circulation was 939,932,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Georgia would rank 42nd. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

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

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Georgia 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 Georgia shows Peach, live oak, sprigs, and state outline.

The banner text reads "Wisdom, Justice, Moderation" which is the state motto.

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

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