I just discovered one of those books you can buy to collect all the quarters. I had the 1999 series filled and Massachusetts and Vermont, or something like that. Completely forgot about my collection.

How many of you have started at the beginning of the series and have kept going?

I have a roll of each of the first four, being a cashier and all. After that it got boring.

I have a book for each of the two mints going. I get them through normal circulation.

I was hoarding the state quarters for several years. Every time I got one in change I would save it. It drove my wife crazy, because she saw it as money that was just sitting there doing nothing. This spring I cashed all the extras in for one of these:

When I considered whether I would rather have a really nice smoker or a bunch of duplicate quarters, the decision was pretty easy.

I had a great thread going on the state quarters, but it's evidently been destroyed in the great database purge. I was dying to slap you with a REPOST on such a lame topic.

I have - at least the Denver mint. I have all that are out so far. Don't see ANY Philly mints out here though - my last Philly mint is Illinois in '03.


Anyone back east having the same problem with Denver mint but has plenty of Philly mint, I'd be up for some trading.

Pastor-

I get about 2 Philli mints for every Denver mint. My Philli book is usually about 2 states ahead of my Denver book. I notice when I go to KC it is almost all Denver mints. I could have helped you before I cashed in for the smoker.

I guess I'll have to send some neg rep to SNR for starting this thread too late then.

I have to admit, I do find quarter collecting arousing...

My Nana (great grandma) buys me a roll everytime a new state comes out. When I'm 93, I guess I will find quarter collecting as appealing as she does.

I still have some all silver (pre 1964) dimes and quarters somewhere.

When I was a paperboy for the DM Register, I took in a lot of silver coins which my dad would buy from me. When the Hunt brothers tried to corner the silver market, my dad cashed in about $50 face value silver coins to the local hardware store for a color TV, a full upright freezer, and a washer and dryer.

Me and my quarters get freaky. I can't find the latest Denver mint quarters in 2005 and 2006. Doesn't that figure. :banghead:

Damn Shannahan, I know he's behind this atrocity. :cuss:

I have been collecting but its difficult because I never carry any money. I don't worry about which mint it came from.

Can you find the same years in Philly mint? I am sure that a trip to the car wash will turn up all of those in Denver mint and would be glad to look and send them to you for Philly mint of the same.

That's cool. Grammys and great grammys make the world go round.

I dont collect them but my Grandma does. She doesn't get out much so I'll save up about 5 different ones, and then give them to her.

My favorite is Indiana. How can you beat an Indy car on a coin!?!

Moooo

I've been doing it all along, I try to get about a dozen or so of each state. I really don't know why.

My mom gave our kids one of those slot maps, with about ten of the quarters already in it.

That was three years ago, I still can't find the thing.....

Cool! I'll have to look when I get back home, but I know I don't have any from '03 on and I am missing 2 from one of the earlier years (I'm thinking '02 but I'm not sure without looking.


What Denver mints do you need?

OK, I was just emptying change out of my pockets and noticed a state quarter that I hadn't seen before, which is odd because the program was supposed to end last year. Upon closer inspection, I see it's goddamned Guam.

WHAT THE FUCK? Guam? Seriously? Did I miss where it became a US state?

I completely forgot about this thread. Similar to my quarter collection.

Now when I get a shiney new quarter, I don't even turn it over and wonder, "Oooo... perhaps this is a brand new one!" I guess that's what happens when you make these things last 10 friggin years just to collect 50 easy-to-find coins. It's not really much of a collection. It's kind of lame, actually.

I filled my Phil Mint book and have like 3 blanks in my Denver mint book. Totally hacked me off when I saw DC, since there wasn't a slot for it in my books.

I bought the US mint sets for 10 years so I have all of the state quarters in mint condition. I have absolutely no interest in Guam, Puerto Rico or any other country however. They're not real valuable but I think they make an interesting collection.

I have almost a complete book now, the problem is that the book I have didn't include a space for Puerto Rico or D.C. and I have coins for them now.

Us too. We collected two books work and had them filled when I spotted a shiny new quarter I hadn't seen. It was either PR or DC, can't remember which but my first response was WTF? because my books don't handle them.

Apparently this is old news, nothing to see here.

Beginning in 2010, the United States Mint will issue 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters<sup></sup> Program. The five quarters to be released in 2010 will honor Hot Springs National Park (https://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/atb/?local=hotSprings) in Arkansas, Yellowstone National Park (https://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/atb/?local=yellowstone) in Wyoming, Yosemite National Park (https://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/atb/?local=yosemite) in California, Grand Canyon National Park (https://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/atb/?local=grandCanyon) in Arizona and Mount Hood National Forest (https://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/atb/?local=mtHood) in Oregon. https://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/atb/

I like the presidential coins better and even then without the silver content, it doesn't do much for me.

Seems like my wife's grandmother gave us a starter set of these years ago, but we ended up using them for laundry before we moved to the suburbs.

I amass a large quantity of them and then when the cashier asks for like $20.78 I hand her a $20, 3 quarters and three pennies. Sometimes I hand her a nickel in lieu of the three pennies, like when I only have two pennies or something like that.

I wish they would make some with Norv's face on the back, so every time AJ Smith sees a quarter he could be reminded that it was "Time for Change."
