Kansas State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Kansas State Quarter.

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

The Kansas Quarter is the 34th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on August 29, 2005. It was the 34th State Quarter issued, because Kansas was the 34th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Kansas Quarter mintage for circulation was 563,400,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Kansas would rank 22nd. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Kansas Quarter coin was engraved by Norman E. Nemeth and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Kansas and just below it the year 1861, which is the year Kansas became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Kansas is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2005.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Kansas shows American bison and sunflowers.

There is no inscription or banner on this coin.

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

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