2006-D South Dakota Quarter

Still looking to get all 50 Denver state quarters today I am one step closer after finding this one. This South Dakota quarter from Denver came in my change after buying lunch. Still I am missing 13 Denver state quarters even though I found all 50 Philadelphia state quarters years ago.
 


Yes I have all the state quarters from uncirculated and mint sets but my collecting passion is change finds. Finding Denver version of coins has always been difficult in the East Coast. The most glaring one I am missing is the Denver minted 1999 New Jersey quarter. I have found hundreds of New Jersey quarters but that Denver mint has eluded me for almost 15 years.

South Dakota quarters features Mount Rushmore, a ring-necked pheasant, and wheat stalks. These are all official symbols of South Dakota and show off the most common things we know about this state. There are some very beautiful parts of South Dakota like the Badlands and Black Hills but are rarely promoted as tourist attractions.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents - South Dakota / United States
Year: 2006 D
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Mintage: 265,800,000
Value: $0.25 in F-12

Also found a 1971 Canadian cent but that has been featured here in the past.

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.

Just wanted to say that I too had so much trouble getting all of the Denver state quarters, especially since I've only started collecting within the past three years. But I'm happy to say I've got both Philly and Denver mints done, Delaware was the last one I found (which I found funny since it was the first state). Anyway, good luck in finding the other 13! They are definitely still out there!

I found the 199-D Jersey a really tough one, too! I think I got just 3 "d"s to go...
