2005-P USA Statehood Quarter - West Virginia - Single

West Virginia State Quarters were released on October 14, 2005 as the thirty-fifth coin in the State Quarter series. West Virginias original Statehood date was June 20, 1863.

The reverse design of the West Virginia Quarter features the New River and the New River Gorge Bridge. The inscriptions include the State name, Statehood date, mintage date, E Pluribus Unum, and New River Gorge. The coins reverse was designed and engraved by John Mercanti.

Prior to becoming a state, West Virginia was a part of Virginia. The state was admitted into the union on the condition that they abolish slavery. The New River Gorge Bridge is 3,030 feet in length. This makes it the worlds largest steel span. The bridge is also the second highest in the United States. The New River is part of the National Park System as the New River Gorge National River.

More than 1,800 designs concepts were collected from around the State. Students from the Governors School for the Arts narrowed the entries down to five finalists. The governor selected the New River Gorge design. The US Treasury Department gave final approval of the design. Other finalist designs for the West Virginia Quarter had included the Appalachians, Bridge Day, river rafters, and Mothers Day.

2005-P West Virginia Quarter: 365,400,000
