Send me a Puerto Rican Quarter!

We all know the saga that is the State Quarters. It’s hard to believe it was 10 years ago when the U.S. Department of Treasury & the U.S. Mint decided to start making individualized quarters for each of the 50 states. It seemed like a good idea, and some people even became crazed with trying to collect all the different quarters. The final states of Alaska & Hawaii were issued in 2008, which according to the “Official” 50 State Quarters Program, means it is completed.

Granted I am the farthest thing from a coin collector, but as I was grabbing a few quarters from my secret stash on my desk to hit up the vending machine; only because the apple I brought from home was completed black and mush inside; I noticed a Guam Quarter.  I thought perhaps it was fake, so I did some research and found the DC & US Territories Program.   That is right folks, in 2009 the U.S. Mint is wasting money again on expensive molds to create DC and US territory quarters.   So, I am on a mission to find a Puerto Rico quarter, heck I want to find a whole bunch!  I can see Bobo’s face now when he sees it!  He revels in anything Puerto Rican.   If you come across a Puerto Rico quarter save it and I will gladly exchange any other “regular” quarter for the all mighty Puerto Rican one.

…and hold to your seats folks, in 2010 the quarters go to the National Parks!  I am so excited I can barely contain myself!

One thought on “Send me a Puerto Rican Quarter!

  1. I had no idea they had Puerto Rican Quarters….Elizabeth probably remembers her 7th grade social studies teacher who told them that Puerto Rico was indeed a state and at first I thought our stupid government thought so too! (and now you know why Florida has such a bad public school system!).
