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..

I have a proof Eisenhower dollar. Turns out, it's made of silver- made in 1971 though! and when you say a 50 cent peice from a little earlier, do you mean the Franklin Halves?

I collect them in coin folders. 15 or so Mercury Dimes 3 Barber Dimes A lot of buffalo nickels Tons of wheat cents Tons of Lincoln Cents I am starting to collect Braided Hair Large Cents from 1839-1857. Tons of currency ranging from Star notes to radar notes, and the years starting from the late 1800's. Multiple Error/Variety coinage. I was actually published in an Error magazine known as CONECA. Ike Dollars Presidential Dollars Sacajawea Dollars Susan B. Anthony Dollars Morgan Dollars Tons of Quarters And some more.......

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.

You can purchase the Red Book for coins here for the hardback, and here for the

Y'know what? I lied, I'll wait for the 2010 to come out next year. That one is becoming more useless the closer it gets to the end of the year.

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.
