Rhode Island 2001 State Quarter:
Celebrating the Maritime Legacy of the Ocean State

Introducing the 2001 Rhode Island State Quarter, a picturesque tribute to the state’s rich maritime heritage. The coin elegantly showcases Narragansett Bay, adorned with a charming vintage sailboat gracefully gliding through its waters. In the backdrop, the iconic Pell Bridge stands as a testament to Rhode Island’s engineering marvels.

Rhode Island, aptly known as the Ocean State, is renowned for hosting the America’s Cup sailing competition. The sailboat depicted on the coin holds historical significance, representing the vessel that emerged victorious in the America’s Cup during the early 1900s.

With the 2001 Rhode Island State Quarter, we celebrate the state’s deep connection to the sea and its storied sailing legacy. This coin captures the essence of Rhode Island’s beauty and the allure of its nautical traditions.

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 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.
