2008-D Alaska Quarter

Have an Alaska quarter and want to know its value?

I'll ask ya what quarter did I finally get this week. The Alaskan Denver quarter. Well bad puns aside it took five years to find this common Denver state quarter in my change and I still have sixteen more to get.


Overall it is a cool looking quarter because they have a bear catching a fish in the rapids. The word Alaska is next to a single star and the statehood year of 1959. The Great Land is the English translation of the Aleut word Alyeska (Alaska).

The state quarter series was over at the end of 2008 and they all are still circulating well. While the conditions of the coins are not great due to all the elaborate designs that trap dirt you can still find most in your change. Currently none of the state quarters have any real value but as a good summer project you may one to see how many you can get. There are 50 from each mint in circulation so 100 quarters that would be $25.00 in case you do not want to keep them at the end.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents - Alaska / United States
Year: 2008 D
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Mintage: 254,000,000
Value: $0.25 in F-12

Do you have a state quarter and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I've been told that the 1982 P/D, 1983 P/D, and 1986 D u.s. quarters are key dates. Is there any way you could confirm? I've checked the Redbook but also a few sites and they give mixed answers

If you mean non-errors they are not key dates.

But they were made with weak strikes. To find sharp high grade examples is difficult in circulation.

These coins are common but rarely get graded mint state so they carry extra value in high grades.

I found a U.S. quarter recently buy i wasn't sure what it was. I looked it up and found out it was a Standing Liberty Quarter. The problem is that the date is worn off. It's condition is poor. I would like to find out more about it.

Standing Liberty quarters were made from 1916-1930. 1916 is the most valuable but very rare.

Dateless quarters are only worth the metal value, in this case about $3.75.

I nearly completed my state quarter collection from both mints. With only the last one being Alabamba 2003-P. I want to know what a complete state quarter collection from both mints would be worth. Thanks Man

Just $0.25 each, in circulated condition these coins are only face value.
