In 2020, a new program was introduced to the market as a follow up to the widely successful Statehood Quarter series, called the Lost States of America program. The designs of the statehood quarters told the stories of all 50 states, but the stories that have never been told are the stories of the Lost States. The Lost States are territories that came close to joining the union, but their proposals did not make the cut. These are the long forgotten stories of states that never became like Texlahoma, Transylvania, Patomic and Lower California to mention a few.
