Vermont State Quarter

The Vermont State Quarter was the fourth state quarter issued in 2001 and the 14th in the series which was authorized by the 50 States Commemorative Coin Program Act.

The release date for the VT State Quarter was August 6, 2001.

The elements of the design include maple trees collecting sap into buckets hanging from them, with Camel's Hump Mountain in the background, a fitting image for a state famous for its maple syrup and snow skiing.

Vermont's Governor Howard Dean appointed the Vermont Arts Council to solicit design ideas from the state's citizens. The Council then narrowed down the design ideas to five concepts, and the Governor's office held an informal radio survey to get the opinions of the citizens of Vermont. All five design ideas included the Camel's Hump Mountain.

Governor Dean then selected the final design and submitted it to the Secretary of the Treasury.

Below is a table showing the design specifications and mintages of the Vermont State Quarter.
