Whats going on with the dates under the word Jamestown? It says 1607-2007 but the quarter was minted in 2000. Was the US Mint predicting the future or just an early release for the Quad?

In 2007, Jamestown, the first permanent settlement in the United States, will celebrate its 400th anniversary. To commemorate this event, the new quarter design includes the word, “QUADRICENTENNIAL.”

correct, just seemed strange that they would put that on a quarter 7 years early though.

Could have been worse. They could have put "QUADROTRITICALE" on the coin.....

Virginia had always been "frugal" when I was growing up in the DC Metro area. I remember when the Capitol Beltway (I-495) was being constructed. Unlike Maryland, Virginia didn't want to spend the money for a third lane on their 25-mile stretch. It was always a bottleneck if you had to travel into Virginia from Maryland during rush hour. Ten years later, when they realized it would be necessary to add two more lanes, it costed Virginia more for those two additional lanes than it did, originally, to build the entire 52-miles in both Maryland and Virginia.

 

Fast forward to the year 2000 and the VA SQ. I guess they're still cheap!

VA sent in a design that if approved would provide them with seven years of free national advertising for their quadricentennial celebrations. In my opinion it should have been rejected out of hand for that reason. Naturally it was approved.

I was on the Indiana committee to select the design and our choice was ignored.

We picked George Rogers Clark (carrying a gun over his head) wading through

the icy water to defeat the British at Vincennes. The Governor's representative

was at the meeting and when she saw the drawing in question exclaimed "But

he's carrying a gun!" We all knew that it was dead in the water after that.

 

The governor then picked a motif honoring racing but the rules said that private

firms could not be honored and that was exactly the case with the Indianapolis

Motor Speedway (the Indy 500). This inconvenient fact was pointed out to the

Mint but nothing happened.

 

It gets better. When the ceremony was held launching the new Indiana quarter,

the ceremony was held at the Motor Speedway with the Governor, the Speedway

owner, and Mint officials on the platform. The high school student who designed

the motif had to sit in the stands along with the committee.

Did they have any ceremony in 2007? I must have missed it.

Apparently they did, centered around the Jamestown area. The state and and Jamestown quadricentennial commission seemed to have been rather mild. Most of the push for the celebrations seems to have come from a couple of "dedicated" Christian organizations that were trying to convertit into a celebration of 400 years of Christianity in America. Ionly find a little from the Jamestown or state people on the net but a lot of references from the Christian groups.

Does nobody else find that odd?? I myself find it rather odd that I would even know ANY leaders of a foreign country since I myself have NEVER left my own country and aint even gotta passport. Don't u find that rather odd as well?? Just sayin

Chris at this point in time please step away from the keyboard.  Take a deep breath.  Collect your thoughts.  Then please restate what you are saying in a way we will understand.  Clearly you are passionate about what you are trying to ask or tell us and I am curious.

Unintelligible ramblings culminating in the sentencing at the Hague of Charles Taylor to 50 years for war crimes committed in Liberia. 

Countries that "celebrate everybody else's history" are simply trying to survive on the revenue streams generated by coinage.  Same reason why so many Liberian flags grace the sterns of ocean-going vessels.
