Two new quarter boards are being offered by the Professional Numismatists Guild that will allow collectors to house 2005-2008 quarters issued by the U.S. Mint under its 50 State Quarters Program.
More than 600,000 quarter boards have been distributed since the 1999 inception of the Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program. “These latest boards are available free from participating PNG member-dealers, or can be obtained directly from PNG headquarters for $1 to cover the cost of sending up to five boards,” said Robert Brueggeman, PNG executive director.

One side of each board has 20 die-cut holes for holding a collection of commemorative state quarters for a two-year period, 2005-2006 and 2007-2008, the final four years of the scheduled state commemorative coin series.
The 10 states on the latest two quarter boards are: (2005) California, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas and West Virginia; (2006) Nevada, Nebraska, Colorado, North Dakota and South Dakota; (2007) Montana, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah; and (2008) Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii.
The other side of the 2005-2006 board, labeled “American History Illustrated,” has color illustrations of a dozen U.S. commemorative half dollars.
The back side of the 2007-2008 quarter board has a 50 State Quarters Program trivia test and information about the Mint’s H.I.P. Pocket Change Web site, www.USMint.gov/kids.
To obtain from one to five PNG quarter boards directly from PNG, send $1 to cover shipping costs to: Robert Brueggeman, PNG executive director, 3950 Concordia Lane, Fallbrook, CA 92028.
