Abstract : A new family of coherent states for the quantum particle motion in an infinite square well potential is presented. These 2-component vector-valued coherent states allow a consistent quantization of the classical phase space for a particle trapped in this potential. We study the basic quantum observables that are derived from such a quantization scheme, namely the position, energy, and a quantum version of the problematic momentum. We also consider their respective time-evolutions, their mean values in coherent states (''lower symbols'') and their quantum dispersions.
