Rhode Island State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Rhode Island State Quarter.

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

The Rhode Island Quarter is the 13th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on May 21, 2001. It was the 13th State Quarter issued, because Rhode Island was the 13th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Rhode Island Quarter mintage for circulation was 870,100,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Rhode Island would rank 40th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Rhode Island Quarter coin was engraved by Thomas D. Rodgers and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Rhode Island and just below it the year 1790, which is the year Rhode Island became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island shows America's Cup yacht Reliance on Narragansett Bay and Pell Bridge.

The inscription reads "The Ocean State".

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