It is the aim of this project to eventually encase all the US State Quarters in the WBCC copper ring.  Both P & D mint marks will be included.  Each year when the next 5 quarters are struck they will also be encased. The proofs with S mint mark will also be encased if the coins can be supplied.  A limit of 10 was made for each coin.

Members will have the opportunity to purchase the encased sets of State Quarters.   Thus the final set will have 100 encased coins, plus any S proofs. 

As a start, the quarters issued in 1999 will be encased and progressively from then.  It is anticipated that 5 States at a time with both mint marks will be encased and distributed.

The production Method.

The surface of the copper strip is marked (1) so that the maximum number of rings can be cut.  The inner hole (2) is then cut followed by the outer ring (3).  The quarter is then fitted into the ring shown on the right and stamped. The pressure of the stamping expands the ring to make a very tight fit.  The remaining copper strip with holes is known as sisal.
