Hello guys,

How valuable would it be if you have the state quarters collection. All of it? And which is the best place to buy them from?

Hello and welcome to the community!

Here in the US I got mine for $12.50 (50 x $0.25) as I pulled all quarters out of circulation. Probably the best person to tell you where you can get these coins in Egypt is EgCollector.

And you always can stick around, share your passion and your experience with us, and when you have enough posts you can do trades with fellow forum members.

Thank you :) I'm still new to this, but were they silver proof or what? because I hear they are the expensive ones.

No, mine are the circulation version, copper-nickel. Depending on your needs and tastes you can get colored, silver proof, silver clad, gold clad. All of those will cost more, sometimes much more, while the value in most cases won't hold up. That is if you decide to resell there's a good chance you won't get your money back.

Ammar, the state quarters as issued by the U. S. Mint came as 1. Clad business or regular strikes, Denver mint, or D mint mark, 50 different. 2. Same with P mint mark from Philidelphia. 3. Clad proof coins, S mint mark from San Francisco mint. 4. Silver proof coins, S mint mark from San Francisco.
This means for each individual state there were four different quarters, i.e., a P mint mark, a D mint mark, an S mint mark in clad metal and an S mint mark in silver, for a total of 200 nominally different coins to make a complete set. For the last four or five years some P and D coins (those in gov't issued uncirculated mint sets) had a slightly different satin finish, but most people do not count those as really different and they were not issued for all 50 states.
As Svslav said, there are also colored, gold plated, silver plated and even platinum plated versions, but these are all after market privately plated coins and not official mint products and have little value.
The silver proofs are the most expensive part of the series to acquire.

I AM A COLLECTOR! I don't care if the value is going to go up, down or sideways! I don't collect coins to get rich, but as a hobby to RELAX!
