Michigan State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Michigan State Quarter.

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

The Michigan Quarter is the 26th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on January 26, 2004. It was the 26th State Quarter issued, because Michigan was the 26th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Michigan Quarter mintage for circulation was 459,600,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Michigan would rank 7th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Michigan Quarter coin was engraved by Donna Weaver and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Michigan and just below it the year 1837, which is the year Michigan became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Michigan is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2004.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Michigan shows state outline and outline of Great Lakes system.

The inscription reads "Great Lakes State".

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

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