The State Quarter Program continued in 2000 with the next five designs in the series. Coins were issued to honor Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia. These designs continued the tradition of displaying the diversity of the various states of the nation, ranging from Colonial themes to a natural rock formation.

Massachusetts State Quarter
The Massachusetts Quarter was the sixth coin in the State Quarter series. It was released on January 3, 2000 and features the Colonial Minuteman. Similar to the design for the previous year’s Delaware Quarter, this design invokes important images from the Revolutionary War period.
Maryland State Quarter
The Maryland Quarter was the seventh coin in the State Quarter series. It was released on March 13, 2000 and features the Maryland Statehouse. This was the first State Quarter design to feature a prominent or famous building.
South Carolina State Quarter
The South Carolina Quarter was the eighth coin in the State Quarter series. It was released on May 22, 2000 and features a collection of symbols important to the state. The state bird, state flower, state tree, and an outline of the state are all included.
New Hampshire State Quarter
The New Hampshire Quarter was the ninth coin in the State Quarter series. It was released on June 21, 2000 and features a natural rock formation. This formation is known as “The Old Man of the Mountain.” Unfortunately, the formation crumbled several years after the quarter’s release.
Virginia State Quarter
The Virginia Quarter was the tenth coin in the State Quarter series. It was released on October 16, 2000 and features three ships bringing settlers to Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in America. The quarter is meant to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the settlement in 2007.
