Maine State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Maine State Quarter.

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

The Maine Quarter is the 23rd quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on June 2, 2003. It was the 23rd State Quarter issued, because Maine was the 23rd state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Maine Quarter mintage for circulation was 448,800,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Maine would rank 2nd. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Maine Quarter coin was engraved by Donna Weaver and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Maine and just below it the year 1820, which is the year Maine became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Maine is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2003.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Maine shows Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and the schooner Victory Chimes at sea.

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 Maine circulated coins. The San Francisco Mint was the only Mint that made the proof and silver proof Maine coins.

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