The 50 State Quarters Program honored each of the 50 states with special quarter designs. From 1999 to 2008, the U.S. Mint made five new quarters every year. The quarters were released in the same order as the states’ “birthdays,” as listed below. In 2009, the Mint made six more quarter designs for Washington, DC and the five U.S. territories as part of the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters Program.
