Would you consider the territory quarter that came out in 2009 as a territory quarter or would you start calling it a State Quarter.

I would still call it what it is, a DC & US Territories Quarter. It is representing what DC was at the time they were minted.

But this is just my opinion. I would not get mad at anyone for calling it a Statehood Quarter, although they would be missing the year it attained Statehood like all other other ones have. I have not been mad at people calling these coins an extension for the Statehood series, so why start now?

For what it is worth, I have these coins in a page added to my Statehood Dansco album.

I never liked the "territories" designation -- to me, there are 56 coins in the statehood set. (I know, I know, but still.)

DC isn't going to get statehood. it was purposely kept excluded for a valid reason and I think it's still valid today.

Anything is possible of course, I just doubt it happens.

The U.S. Constitution provides for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction of the U.S. Congress, and the district is therefore not a part of any U.S. state, and not a state itself.

It's roughly 68 square miles. The smallest state is Rhode Island and it's 1,212 square miles for perspective. DC is even kind of small for a city...

It was never meant to be a state, it was always meant to be a federal district, and that's how it should remain.

Problem is that way too many people live there now. I doubt the founders envisioned the necessary service industry requirements of our modern capital city.

But I degree... not a discussion for CCF.

As I said in another thread, interesting times.

I never considered the DC quarter a "territory" quarter in the first place. I'll just call it the "DC quarter." If there are ever any new states added, I doubt there will be a shortage of new Mint products to mark the occasion.

Same as any other large city. Should we start making all the large cities "states".

Big-Kingdom is correct, it was deliberately set up so that the seat of government would not be beholden to any particular state and would be rune by the Federal Government itself, and it should remain that way. Maybe theFederal Government should start to take more of a "hands on" approach to the running of the District.

No, because they already have representation in Congress.

I think you missed the point (that DC was not meant to be a place where a large population of people lived and worked their entire lives; eligible males were expected to return to their home states to vote for representation).

But again, this is really not the venue to discuss it further.

I would not ever consider the 2009 DC quarter a State Quarter.

It was not part of the legislation that created the Statehood Quarters program back in 1997 - it was authorized in separate legislation in 2007 that was designed to recognize non-states that are a part of the US. For me, it is now and would continue to be the "DC Quarter."
