Launched in 1999, the United States 50 State Quarters Program was a 10-year initiative that honored each of the nation's states in the order that they ratified the Constitution or were admitted into the Union. The 2009 DC and US Territories 6 Quarters U.S. Coins followed. Each quarter was produced for about 10 weeks and never produced again. Here is your chance to own a complete set of 56 beautifully colorized United States Statehood Quarters featuring all 50 states, D.C. and the U.S. Territories. Each coin is beautifully enhanced on the reverse in permanent full-color by the Merrick Mint to highlight the original design using a unique colorizing process, which involves the application of special inks directly to the surface of a coin. The result is an everlasting colorized coin collectible of ultra-high quality that is the top in the industry. Each coin features a unique state design on the reverse and a common obverse with a portrait of George Washington. Each coin is genuine legal tender of the United States and comes in an acrylic coin holder and includes a Full Color two-sided Certificate of Authenticity. The State Quarters Program was the most popular commemorative coin program in United States history!
