1 in 72,800,000

cnmi quarterThis blog is always chock full of information that you never knew you needed to know.

Today's important fact has to do with the 50 State Quarters Program. Did you know that only 72,800,000 Northern Mariana Quarters were put into circulation in 2009, making it the quarter with the lowest circulation in the history of the American quarter (that's only enough for 1 in 4 Americans to own one)? There were 20x fewer NMI quarters cast than Virginia quarters, the state with the highest circulation (1,594,616,000). How crazy is that?

Hold on to your 2009 NMI quarters, people. Those babies are going to be collectors items one day...especially if China invades us!
