Montana State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Montana State Quarter.

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

The Montana Quarter is the 41st quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on January 29, 2007. It was the 41st State Quarter issued, because Montana was the 41st state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Montana Quarter mintage for circulation was 513,240,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Montana would rank 17th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Montana Quarter coin was engraved by Don Everhart and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Montana and just below it the year 1889, which is the year Montana became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Montana is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2007.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Montana shows American bison skull in the center with mountains and the Missouri River in the background.

The inscription reads "Big Sky Country".

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

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