Missouri State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Missouri State Quarter.

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

The Missouri Quarter is the 24th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on August 4, 2003. It was the 24th State Quarter issued, because Missouri was the 24th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Missouri Quarter mintage for circulation was 453,200,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Missouri would rank 3rd. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Missouri Quarter coin was engraved by Alfred Maletsky and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Missouri and just below it the year 1821, which is the year Missouri became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Missouri 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 Missouri shows Gateway Arch, Lewis and Clark and York returning down Missouri River.

The inscription reads "Corps of Discovery 1804-2004".

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

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