US State Coins

The 50 State Quarters were released by the United States Mint every ten weeks, or five each year. They were released in the same order that the states ratified the Constitution, starting with Delaware 1787 and ending with Hawaii 1950. Each quarter’s reverse commemorated the State with a design emblematic of its unique history, traditions and symbols. Some of you may remember the California one which featured John Muir released in 2003. Dunbar Rotary purchased one for each child in the Dunbar catchment area and Friends obtained some which were attractively packaged and sold for the bebefit of the Birthplace. Friends have now received a presentation box of all 50 coins given to us by Mr and Mrs Morton from Haddington
