Massachusetts State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Massachusetts State Quarter.

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

The Massachusetts Quarter is the 6th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on January 3, 2000. It was the 6th State Quarter issued, because Massachusetts was the 6th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Massachusetts Quarter mintage for circulation was 1,163,784,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Massachusetts would rank 44th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

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

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts shows The Minuteman statue and state outline.

The inscription reads "The Bay State".

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

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