1999 Georgia State Quarter: A Peachy Symbol of the South

The 1999 Georgia State Quarter: A Symbol of the Peach State

The 1999 Georgia State Quarter is a beautiful and interesting coin that features a peach, branches of a live oak tree, and the state motto “Wisdom, Justice, Moderation” over an outline of the state.

The peach is the state fruit of Georgia, and the live oak tree is the state tree. The state motto was adopted in 1777, and it reflects the state’s commitment to these values.

There is a rare error version of the 1999 Georgia State Quarter that was struck on experimental planchets, intended for the Sacagawea dollar. These coins are worth significantly more than the standard 1999 Georgia State Quarters.

The peach on the coin is actually a Golden Jubilee peach, which is a variety of peach that was developed in Georgia in the early 1900s. The live oak tree on the coin is a symbol of strength and longevity. The state motto “Wisdom, Justice, Moderation” was adopted by Georgia in 1777.

The 50 State Quarters Program was launched in 1999 by the U.S. Mint and was a 10-year initiative that honored each of the 50 states. The U.S. Mint issued five new quarters each year in the order that the states ratified the Constitution or were admitted into the Union.

The 1999 State Quarters were the first five coins of the 50 State Quarters Program. The program lasted for 10 years (1999-2008) and was extended to include six more territories in 2009. The coins have a common obverse design of George Washington and a state-specific reverse design. The coins were produced for about 10 weeks each and will never be produced again.
