Minnesota State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Minnesota State Quarter.

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

The Minnesota Quarter is the 32nd quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on April 4, 2005. It was the 32nd State Quarter issued, because Minnesota was the 32nd state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Minnesota Quarter mintage for circulation was 488,000,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Minnesota would rank 11th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Minnesota Quarter coin was engraved by Charles L. Vickers and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Minnesota and just below it the year 1858, which is the year Minnesota became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Minnesota 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 Minnesota shows Common loon, fishing, and state map.

The inscription reads "Land of 10,000 Lakes".

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

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