The 50th State Quarter

The last installment in the U.S. Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program made its debut Tuesday at the United States mint in Denver, Colo. The Hawaii commemorative quarter brings a close to the 10-year series.

On the back of the coin is a picture of King Kamehameha stretching his hand toward the eight Hawaiian Islands. Words in a Hawaiian language are also shown. They translate as “The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness.”

The Hawaii quarter will go into circulation on Nov. 3.

  1. Does anybody have any advice on how to get the Hawaii state quarter (or any other of the quarters, for that matter)? I collect the state quarters from both the Denver mint and the Philadelphia mint but am missing at least one quarter in every year.
