Idaho State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Idaho State Quarter.

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

The Idaho Quarter is the 43rd quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on June 5, 2007. It was the 43rd State Quarter issued, because Idaho was the 43rd state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Idaho Quarter mintage for circulation was 581,400,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Idaho would rank 26th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Idaho Quarter coin was engraved by Don Everhart and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Idaho and just below it the year 1890, which is the year Idaho became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Idaho is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2007.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Idaho shows Peregrine falcon and state outline.

The inscription reads "Esto Perpetua".

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

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