The 50 States Quarters program was enacted in 2007 by President, Bill Clinton and the first coins began rolling out in 1999 with the Delaware state quarter. The program was originally set to end with the Hawaii state quarter in 2008, however, the program was so popular, President, George W. Bush extended it in 2007 the program to include six US territories.
Its possible that you haven't even seen these coins yet. These coins were only minted in 2009 and will never be minted again. If you have the 50 State Quarters set, the US Territories Quarters are a perfect compliment. You can purchase these coins in brilliant, uncirculated condition, directly from The Franklin Mint.
If that weren't enough, the America the Beautiful Quarters began mintage in 2010 and feature some of the most beautiful National Parks and monuments. The series will consist of 56 quarters and is scheduled to run until 2021. One site was selected from each US State and territory.
