The Arizona quarter-dollar is the 48th coin released in the 50 State Quarters® Program and is available in two-roll sets and in bags of 100 and 1,000 coins! The reverse of Arizona's quarter features an image of the Grand Canyon and a Saguaro cactus. A banner reading "Grand Canyon State" separates the two images to signify that the Saguaro cactus does not grow in the Grand Canyon. The coin's design also bears the inscriptions "Arizona" and "1912." Make sure to purchase your Arizona bags and rolls today!
