It's kind of tragic that the symbol of "The Old Man on the Mountain" for New Hampshire is no longer with us. That piece of rock collapsed not many years after the coin was issued.

Also, does anyone know what breed of horse is depicted on both the Kentucky and Delaware Quarters? If no one has the answer by tomorrow I'll post it. This is kind of a trick question so beware. ;D

Palomino?  Just a guess.  Three more :-)  Kansas (2006), Iowa (2004) and, another of my favorites, Minnesota (2005).  I've not counted that many lakes up there but that's what they say.  I will say that was some of most amazing duck hunting I've ever experienced!

Many more to go but what is your favorite so far?  Free for all 😎  I'm thinking Danali or Virginia...both wonderful art.  Saratoga is pretty nice as well.  Update...I think so far this is my favorite.  Notice I used obverse vs reverse :-)  Old dog new tricks!  I like this one for it's simplicity and history.  Just a well done coin in my opinion.

Of course 😆  A few more...Oklahoma and the Dakotas.  I've always liked the OK design.  I can't believe I forgot Florida!  Lived there probably around two years, Orlando, Jacksonville and Pensacola.  All Navy training.  Sorry about the reposts.  It's a big list :-)

It should be noted that the State Quarters were/are available in P mint mark and D mint mark and S mint mark for Proof.
I believe most if not all were available in a Silver proof version as well and there were multiple packaging options.

It is fairly typical of the mint to take marketing to extremes. Lots of options for everyone, not so much for hard core coin collectors.

At one time a mint set were coins that were meant to circulate. That is not always the case anymore.
I still like the mint sets but have no illusions about their value or future value. It is still possible to have fun
with mint products but I am selective. Better be rich if you want everything they put out.

 Prosit, those are nice sets.  Most of my proofs are 1960s and 70s.  One of my historic favorites...Commodore Perry (I do like this coin :-)  Studied his career extensively.

You're welcome!

I note that the Arkansas quarter is one of the few coins to feature a diamond:

Arkansas is one of few states that has free for all diamond parks.  Some of the largest diamonds have been found there.  I believe Oklahoma has a few as well.
