Remember those US state quarters?

  1. I swear that I am going to burn a coin just so my children can find it and sell it for a ridiculous price. It would be a really cheap long-term plan to make some money.
  2. Heh, I think my mom has a whole bunch of those. My dad was getting her the sets, where you got one from each of the mints that did them. She has them in a book somewhere.
  3. ...whoa, burn one?
    Anyone, I think some member of my family had that whole folder thing. I dunno.
    Interesting that some went up so much and others (my own dear Colorado for instance) stayed pretty much the same.
  4. Wow, a roll of Arkansas quarters is worth more than the state itself.
  5. The government made these coins on purpose so we'd collect them too..


    The program was conceived as a means of creating a new generation of coin collectors, and in that it succeeded.[2][3] The 50 State Quarters program became the most successful numismatic program in history, with roughly half of the U.S. population collecting the coins, either in casual manner or as a serious pursuit.[4] The U.S. federal government so far has made additional profits of $3.0 billion from collectors taking the coins out of circulation.[5]
