State Quarters Program
The U.S. Mint created the 50 State Quarters Program to renew a national interest in coin collecting. The program has been a huge success. The United States government has already earned more than $4,000,000,000 because collectors have taken millions of state quarters out of circulation. More than 150 million people have collected state quarters since the program was introduced.
There are many beautiful products based on state quarters, including jewelry, cufflinks, magnets, greeting cards, keychains–even cuddly teddy bears!
