Virginia State Quarter

Information about the commemorative Virginia State Quarter.

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

The Virginia Quarter is the 10th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on October 16, 2000. It was the 10th State Quarter issued, because Virginia was the 10th state to be admitted to the Union.

According to the US Mint, total Virginia Quarter mintage for circulation was 1,594,616,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Virginia would rank 50th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)

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

The Virginia Quarter coin was engraved by Edgar Z. Steever and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Virginia and just below it the year 1788, which is the year Virginia became a state.

At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Virginia is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2000.

The actual design that was submitted by the state of Virginia shows the ships Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery.

The inscriptions read "Jamestown, 16072007" and "Quadricentennial".

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

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