Indiana State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Indiana State Quarter.

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

The Indiana Quarter is the 19th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on August 8, 2002. It was the 19th State Quarter issued, because Indiana was the 19th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Indiana Quarter mintage for circulation was 689,800,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Indiana would rank 33rd. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Indiana Quarter coin was engraved by Donna Weaver and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Indiana and just below it the year 1816, which is the year Indiana became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Indiana is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2002.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Indiana shows IndyCar, state outline, and 19 stars.

The inscription reads "Crossroads of America".

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

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