Today, Governor Brian Kemp signed two executive orders to alleviate the financial burden placed on Georgians due to inflation and to renew efforts to address supply chain issues. Both orders will be effective through August 13 and can be seen below.

In Executive Order, Governor Kemp has extended the temporary suspension of the state’s excise tax on motor fuel sales through the remainder of the summer.

Additionally, this order suspends collection of the state sales tax on locomotive fuel. He also renewed the State of Emergency for Supply Chain Disruptions via Executive Order

“I am committed to fighting to ease the economic burden hardworking Georgians are facing due to disastrous policies from Washington politicians,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “In March, I took decisive action to help those impacted by high prices at the pump. Unfortunately, President Biden and Democratic leaders have not done their part to tackle this issue, instead calling on Americans facing record-high inflation to live more frugally. To provide actual relief to Georgians, I am once again extending the supply chain state of emergency and suspending our state motor fuel tax. In addition to these actions, I am suspending the locomotive fuel tax to help fight rising costs that are being passed on to consumers.”

“While President Biden and Democrats in Washington do nothing to help hardworking Georgians, we are again taking action to keep our people and our economy moving,” said Speaker David Ralston. “Thanks to Governor Kemp’s leadership and the proactive efforts of our General Assembly, Georgians enjoy some of the lowest fuel prices in the nation, benefitting both families and businesses. We will continue to work together to serve those who call Georgia home.”

“With gas prices consistently on the rise across the nation, Georgians continue to feel the burden of Washington’s failure to address inflated energy prices,” said Lt. Governor Duncan. “Thanks to Governor Kemp’s bold leadership, we’re doing everything in our power on the state level to ensure Georgians have some form of relief at the gas pump with the latest renewal of the gas tax exemption.”

The release states that “Because of Gov. Kemp and state leaders’ fiscally conservative approach to budgeting, Georgia can confidently extend the state motor fuel tax suspension to help curb sky-high gas prices. Since the temporary suspension was implemented, Georgia’s average gas price has often been the lowest in the nation and is currently roughly 50 cents below the national average for a gallon of regular gas, according to AAA.” supply chain ga fuel taxes ga

Most valuable state quarters worth up to $788 – see if you have one of them in your spare change

STATE quarters have been around for a limited amount of time, but they could be quite valuable if you happen to find one. 

From 1999 to 2008, the US Mint struck the state quarters. 

6All states feature their own unique design on the reverse

All 50 states had their own unique design, which all featured George Washington on the obverse. 

Each year, the coins were released into five groups in order of birthdays until the series was complete nearly a decade later.

While Americans might be inclined to collect a piece from their native state, the determination in value is no different than other coins. 

The most important elements you’ll want to look out for are dates, mintages, letter marks, and potential errors.

Becoming familiar with these could help you spot a valuable coin. 

Odds are if you happen to have a coin in your spare change, it is circulated. 

The term circulated could mean a few things including that it was meant for the use of daily transactions and the grade, which runs from 1-58. 

They also contain traces of wear.

Uncirculated coins, on the other hand, do not contain traces of wear. 

Below we reveal some of the most valuable state quarters, most of which are in circulation.

1. 1999 Georgia State Quarter - $23 6This two pieces feature a clipped planchet errorCredit: Ebay/Brisco144

The 1999 Georgia State Quarter can be sought out by collectors.

This particular coin features a clipped planchet error, which happens when a blanking die overlaps a previously punched hole in a coin metal strip.

The result of the malfunction leaves a concave fail.

According to, there are five characteristics to look for in a clipped planchet.

  • A pole opposite the clip shows a fragile or absent rim. This is considered the "Blakesley" effect. The "Blakesley" effect is not always seen on coins with original curved clips.
  • The design elements bordering the clip always show the flow of the metal – which usually indicates the smeared and stretched-out style.
  • The uncovered edge of the clip usually shows a "belly line" or "breakaway zone." A portion of the exposed edge will be grainy, and the other half will be smooth.
  • The rim should fade out and taper toward the clip.
  • The copper core is asymmetrically uncovered in a clad coin along the edge. The position of the exposed copper core “flips” when you transition from a standard edge to a curved edge.
  • The Philidelphia minted quarter is marked with the letter "P."

    The Denver coin is marked with the letter "D."

    Both combined sold for $23 online in a recent eBay listing.

    That means they are worth about $11.50 each.

    2. 2008 Alaska state quarter - $81 6The coin features a ragged clip error

    Sometimes errors could be tough to spot - but not on an Alaskan 2008 state quarter that sold online for $81 recently. 

    Very clearly you could see that there is a piece to the coin missing on the right side, which the seller describes as an “end of sheet straight clip error”.

    These are also known as “ragged clips” or end of strip” clips. 

    “The shape of a ragged clip is highly variable,” numismatics website Error-Ref wrote. 

    “Many are straight, some form “ragged notches” and some turn into “ragged fissures.

    “The edge texture of a ragged clip is invariably rough and shows some graininess.”

    The error should not be mistaken for broken coins or planchet errors. 

    3. 2004 Wisconsin state quarter - $95 6The variety of the Wisconsin quarter features an extra-low leaf

    If you happen to find a Wisconsin quarter, you’ll want to be on the lookout for a couple of varieties.

    The 2004-dated state quarter features a cow next to a leaf of corn and a round of cheese. 

    There is also the text of “forward” (beneath the images) and the state’s birth date of 1848 (above the images).

    In particular, you’ll want to look out for an extra leaf, in which there are two varieties. 

    “Immediately, the discovery of the coins broke out in the news and people all over the country were out searching for them,” Jamie Hernandez, former President of Professional Coin Grading Service wrote.

    “There were some reports that some individuals found up to hundreds of them at once from bank wrapped rolls, making it seem as if they were very easy to find.”

    According to coin online database CoinTrackers, the extra high leaf variety of the Wisconsin quarter is worth up to $300.

    The extra low leaf is worth up to $250.

    One variety with the extra low leaf that was ungraded sold for $95 in an eBay auction. 

    4. 2000 New Hampshire state quarter - $216 6The seller claims that the quarter was struck on a Jefferson nickel

    Another state quarter has sold for hundreds online due to an error. 

    The text in the listing features the birthdate of 1788 with the text “Old man of the mountain” on the reverse.

    Although “New Hampshire” does not show on the top of the reverse of the Washington quarter in the listing, this is clearly the design of that particular state coin.

    According to the seller, the quarter was struck on a Jefferson nickel with a planchet mint error, which is also known as a double denomination. 

    “Planchet errors encompass all mistakes resulting from a defective blank, whether or not it has passed through the upsetting mill,” coin service website Fleur de Coin wrote.

    The New Hampshire error quarter wound up selling for $215.50 after 13 bids. 

    5. 1999 Delware state quarter - $788 6This Delaware quarter has a proof grade

    This last coin is unlike the others on this list because it is in a proof grade.

    That means it could be tougher to find since they were minted mainly for the purpose of collecting. 

    It is said that proof coins are struck twice at the beginning of the minting process. 

    The Delaware quarter was the first one struck by the Mint that kicked off the state series. 

    The design features the text “The First State” and “Caesar Rodney,” who was one of the country’s founding fathers. 

    The quarter honors the former Delaware governor’s horseback ride in 1776.

    The coin in the listing features an S mintmark, which stands for San Fransico.

    But most importantly, the coin has a grade of 70, which is the highest on Professional Coin Grading Services’ scale. 

    The coin grader describes coins in the grade as “fully struck and lustrous”.

    The proof Delaware piece sold for a total of $787.77 after 86 bids. 

    It was certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company.
