Virginia 1788

Hi over the past days I have had a comment from one of the best bloggers in the world called Mrs Yollis. She asked me what this coin was and I said "It's the Virginia 1788 coin also with Jamestown 1607-2007" The mint mark is: D. The total amount produced is 651,616,000. It is worth 0.25 cent in USD. A rendering of the arrival in 1607 of the three ships, Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery to Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement, is accompanied with the legends "JAMESTOWN 1607-2007" and "QUADRICENTENNIAL. Also on the bottom it has 2000 and the word "E PLURIBUS UNUM" If you know anymore information please comment down below.

    Yes, I have been lucky enough to know Mr Yollis online for a few years now, she is an amazing educator she's had 1.8 million page views! Incredibly that despite being so 'famous' (and she is literally the most famous blogger of school related matters, in the world) she continues to take the time to leave comments on students work around the world, and she's already left two comments here.

    1. @ Mr. Webb,

      You have put a smile on my face a mile wide! Thank you for your high praise and kind words. I feel lucky to be part of such a wonderful, global blogging community!

  2. Caro, what a great blog. I didn't know there was a 1788 penny like that. The US quarters are really unique because on the back of them you can find different symbols representing each state. A great way to learn a little about the USA. Do you know what is on the North Carolina coin? :)

  3. The United States started a series of coins, quarters to be exact, that honored each state. The Virginia quarter you have honors the state of Virginia. The back of the coin has the dates for the 400th anniversary of the Founding of the Jamestown colony. Did you know that the Queen of England visited the original site of the colony in 2007?

  4. @ Mr. C.,

    Thanks for the great information! Wow, Jamestown celebrated its QUADRICENTENNIAL!

    A lot of American students and adults collected all of the state quarters when they came out. Did your family do that? I have a partial set. :-)

    @ Caro,

    I am enjoying reading your blog and learning with you. I live in the state of California. Can you find out what state emblems are on it?

    I'd love to learn more about some of your coins? Perhaps you can do a post where you write about some of the features on your national coinage.

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Y♥llis
