Maryland State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Maryland State Quarter.

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

The Maryland Quarter is the 7th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on March 13, 2000. It was the 7th State Quarter issued, because Maryland was the 7th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Maryland Quarter mintage for circulation was 1,234,732,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Maryland would rank 46th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Maryland Quarter coin was engraved by Thomas D. Rodgers and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Maryland and just below it the year 1788, which is the year Maryland became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Maryland is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2000.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Maryland shows Dome of the Maryland State House and white oak clusters.

The inscription reads "The Old Line State".

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

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