Arizona Quarter Completes Collection

In 1998 the US Mint started its 50 State Quarters program. They changed standard quarter designs to ones honoring each of the 50 states. The designs were created by each state and produced five per year for ten years. Early on in the cycle, I got 2 coin books to keep all the quarters. My son had just been born and I got a second for his future sibling.

A few weeks ago we went through a tin of state quarters and finished out the books with the quarters from 2007 and 2008. We were missing one single quarter: Arizona. Well, yesterday I got an Arizona quarter as change to finish off these the second of these two books. I showed it to Grace today and she was excited.

A ten year collecting project is finished. The US Mint has started releasing District of Columbia and Territory Quarters. There is no room in the book, so we will not be collecting those. Do you have a ten year project that you have completed?
