Set Description:

The Story:

The District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarter Set just seemed like the natural extension of the State Quarter Set I have in the progress of being built. Never a big fan of quarters, this set like my State Quarter set is directly tied to my youngest son’s fascination with the Grizzly Bear on the reverse of the Alaska Quarter that started me back on this adventure in coin collecting. With only 12 coins in the entire set and all of the coins being both recent and readily available in PF70UC, the challenge to completing this set is minimal. Almost as an afterthought to the State Quarter Program, in December of 2007 the Federal Government approved the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters for the year 2009. Frequently included with the State Quarters, the DC and State Territories Quarters are a separate and unique set of quarters unto themselves. If nothing else, the set has introduced many people to parts of the United States frequently relegated to a footnote or appendix in the geography of this country. There is one other territorial possession of the United States known as the Minor Outlying Islands. The Minor Outlying Islands combine for less than 15 square miles of land with a population of roughly 300 people primarily living on the Johnson Atoll. The Panama Canal Zone had been a major territory of the United States from 1914 until 1977 when Panama and the United States began sharing responsibility for the region. Panama assumed total control of the region on December 31, 1999.
