As of 2015, State Quarters from Georgia, Connecticut, Tennessee and Illinois attracted the highest prices. A roll of Philadelphia-mint Georgia quarters traded at $52, while its counterpart from the Denver mint traded at $48, the highest difference in the market. A roll of Tennessee quarters traded at $39.50 and $38.25 for the P and D mint marks respectfully. The huge price differences result from factors such as dealer promotions, low mintage totals and people failing to save the coins.

Rare incidences, such as the election of Barack Obama to the presidency and the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth, contributed to the increased price of Illinois quarters in 2009. Additionally, a poor economy forces people to use reserved coins, leading to fluctuations in prices.

Coin values also change depending on the market demand, as driven by collectors. Older coins are in a higher demand than newer ones because they are more rare. As times change, the value of coins also changes as more collectors begin to seek coins that appeared worthless in the past. State Quarter values also vary depending on the grades of the coins. Coins attract prices depending on their aesthetics, coloration or polish.
