Nevada State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Nevada State Quarter.

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

The Nevada Quarter is the 36th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on January 31, 2006. It was the 36th State Quarter issued, because Nevada was the 36th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Nevada Quarter mintage for circulation was 589,800,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Nevada would rank 27th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Nevada Quarter coin was engraved by Don Everhart and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Nevada and just below it the year 1864, which is the year Nevada became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Nevada is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2006.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Nevada shows mustangs, mountains, rising sun, and sagebrush.

The banner text reads "The Silver State".

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

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