Proof State Quarters Mintage

The popular 50 State Quarters Program was launched in 1999 and began a resurgence in interest in coin collecting. During the course of the ten year series, fifty different quarters would be issued to represent each of the states of the union. The mintages for the Proof State Quarters were only a fraction of the massive numbers of quarters minted for circulation. These collector versions of the coins were only issued within certain collectible products offered by the United States Mint.

Proof State Quarter

The obverse design of each State Quarter features a portrait of George Washington based on the work of John Flanagan. For the present series, William Cousins performed modifications to the original design. The reverse design of each quarter features a unique design representing each state. Over the years, the depictions have included important people or places associated with the state, outlines of the state map, or symbols related to the state.

Proof State Quarters were issued with the United States Mint’s annual proof sets. These sets included the cent, nickel(s), dime, half dollar, and dollar coin(s) issued for each year, along with the five quarters. The proof quarters were also included in separate five coin sets that were offered separately by the Mint. Silver proof versions of the quarter were also issued, although this article presents information on the clad composition proof versions only.

For the clad Proof State Quarters:

  • There were a total of 50 different issues, which were each struck at the San Francisco Mint and carry the “S” mint mark.
  • The mintage for each of the quarters issued during a certain year are the same, since all five coins were only sold in products packaged together.
  • Overall, the United States Mint issued 153,296,970 clad composition Proof State Quarters.
  • The highest mintage occurred in 2000 for the Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia designs at 4,020,172 each.
  • The lowest mintage occurred in 2008 for the Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii designs at 2,078,112 each.
