Texas State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Texas State Quarter.

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

The Texas Quarter is the 28th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on June 1, 2004. It was the 28th State Quarter issued, because Texas was the 28th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Texas Quarter mintage for circulation was 541,800,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Texas would rank 20th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Texas Quarter coin was engraved by Norman E. Nemeth and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Texas and just below it the year 1845, which is the year Texas became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Texas is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2004.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Texas shows state outline, star, and lariat.

The inscription reads "The Lone Star State".

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

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