Official Arizona Quarter Commemorative Folio

You can own the Official Arizona Quarter Commemorative Folio celebrating the Arizona’s Quarter from the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters® Program. This gorgeous limited edition collectible includes an uncirculated-quality Arizona Quarter protected by a crystal clear case to ensure your piece of historical art remains in pristine condition.

The actual image of the Grand Canyon and saguaro cactus from the Arizona Quarter’s reverse design is embossed on the front in luxurious copper foil. The inside tells the story of Arizona’s quarter with beautiful images and an educational description of the design.

Made possible by the generous underwriting of Wells Fargo and Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold and designed by PRfect Media, this commemorative folio is a perfect gift or collectible for all Arizonans of any age.

commemorative can be purchased online at the University of Arizona Bookstore and in person at the Arizona Capitol Museum Gift Shop for $10. The gift shop is also the exclusive dealer of 2012 individually numbered folios priced at $20 that feature the Arizona Quarter produced at the Philadelphia Mint with the distinctive "P" mint mark on the front of the quarter. The Arizona market is served by the Denver Mint. All new quarters sent to Arizona are from Denver and have the "D" mint mark on the front of the quarter. Non-numbered folios contain the Denver quarter.

UPDATE: To purchase the numbered folios, contact the Arizona Capitol Museum Gift Shop directly. I'm not sure if sell through their site (probably not) but I'm sure they'll take an order over the phone with a credit card.

The Official Arizona Quarter Commemorative Folio was released to the public on June 2, 2008 at the Official Arizona Quarter Launch Ceremony at the State Capitol in Phoenix, Arizona and quantities are strictly limited to a single press run of 25,000 with 2012 of these numbered 1 through 2012. Once we are sold out, these will no longer be available.

100% of the proceeds from this commemorative will benefit the official celebration of Arizona’s Centennial through the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission.
