New York State Quarter

Information about the commemorative New York State Quarter.

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

The New York Quarter is the 11th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on January 2, 2001. It was the 11th State Quarter issued, because New York was the 11th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total New York Quarter mintage for circulation was 1,275,040,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, New York would rank 47th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The New York Quarter coin was engraved by Alfred Maletsky and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name New York and just below it the year 1788, which is the year New York became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - New York is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2001.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of New York shows Statue of Liberty, 11 stars, state outline with line tracing Hudson River and Erie Canal.

The inscription reads "Gateway to Freedom".

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

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