District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters

You may be familiar with the 50 State Quarters® Program, which began in 1999. To cover all 50 states, five quarter designs were produced each year for 10 years. Well, thanks to the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters Program, there were six design changes within 2009!

The image of George Washington remained on the front of all six quarters in the new program.

On the back, six different images honored the district or territories of the program. These coins were issued two months apart in the order listed below. Versions were also made in 90% silver, but for collecting, not for general spending.
