Tennessee 2002 State Quarter:
Celebrating Music and the Spirit of the Volunteer State

Introducing the 2002 Tennessee State Quarter, a melodic tribute to the rich musical heritage of the Volunteer State. The coin features three iconic musical instruments: a guitar, trumpet, and fiddle, each symbolizing a distinct region of Tennessee. Representing Nashville’s musical tradition, the guitar embodies the heart of country music in mid-Tennessee. Memphis, known for its blues and jazz, is represented by the trumpet, while the fiddle signifies the mountain music that resonates from east-Tennessee.

Beneath the instruments, a banner proudly proclaims “Musical Heritage,” while sheet music creates a harmonious backdrop behind the fiddle. Notably, this coin credits the “real” designer, Shawn Stookey, a Tennessee native and school teacher, making it a testament to local talent.

In a curious detail, the guitar on all Tennessee coins is missing one string, disappearing as it passes over the base hole.

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.
