how? they only made 4 quarters this year. So do you mean 25%?

Anyway, they're not gonna stop making different quarters.

2009 - Territories
2010 (I THINK) - National Parks.

What the frig is next? Countries? Pieces of grass?

Grass #1
Grass # 2
Grass # 3

Anyway, I hope they don't stop after National Parks. I love being surprised by the hypnotizingly awesome designs!

Here are some ideas I'm thinking up as I go along (Also known as "Improvising" (Duh)) :

Countries
World Records (Guinness approved)
Organizations/Charities
Hospitals
Colleges
Landmarks
Tallest buildings

anddrum roll please

Penny from Quebec in 1863? Around there somewhere. Also a silver dollar from 1969, a 50 cent piece from a little earlier. I also have these nickels that are fairly old, mind condition (they are rolled up) and I saw them on ebay for over a dollar and I have over 100 of them :P I have others and I'm gonna sell them all one day..

Awesome! You should buy the Red Book for coins which is a guidebook of all coins and it gives you the approximate value of each and every one.

Thanks to a lack of attention when shopping, I recently found an East Caribbean States dollar coin in my pocket. It's the same size and colour as a 50p piece, and has the same royal portrait, but it has ten sides, not seven.
