New Jersey 1999 State Quarter:
A Symbolic Tribute to US History

The 1999 New Jersey State Quarter holds a unique place in American numismatic history. Designed by Alfred Maletsky, it showcases the iconic image of General George Washington crossing the Delaware River.

This powerful scene pays homage to the pivotal events of the American Revolution, specifically the daring Christmas night crossing in 1776. General Washington’s resolute determination is captured in the foreground, while his fellow soldiers battle the harsh elements behind him. The quarter’s inscription reads “Crossroads of the Revolution,” reflecting New Jersey’s significant role in shaping America’s fight for independence.

A magnificent rendition of the state’s coat of arms is featured on the reverse, highlighting symbols like the helmet of a knight, a shield, and two female figures representing the state’s motto: “Liberty and Prosperity.” This quarter stands as a remarkable tribute to New Jersey’s historical significance and its contributions to the birth of a nation.

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.
