Ohio State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Ohio State Quarter.

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

The Ohio Quarter is the 17th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on March 18, 2002. It was the 17th State Quarter issued, because Ohio was the 17th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Ohio Quarter mintage for circulation was 632,032,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Ohio would rank 29th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Ohio Quarter coin was engraved by Donna Weaver and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Ohio and just below it the year 1803, which is the year Ohio became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Ohio is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2002.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Ohio shows Wright Airplane and Neil Armstrong.

The inscription reads "Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers".

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

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