In this paper, first we have defined a uniform distribution on the boundary of a regular hexagon, and then investigated the optimal sets of n-means and the nth quantization errors for all positive integers n. We give an exact formula to determine them, if n is of the form n = 6k for some positive integer k. We further calculate the quantization dimension, the quantization coefficient, and show that the quantization dimension is equal to the dimension of the object, and the quantization coefficient exists as a finite positive number. Then, we define a mixture of two uniform distributions on the boundary of a semicircular disc, and obtain a sequence and an algorithm, with the help of which we determine the optimal sets of n-means and the nth quantization errors for all positive integers n with respect to the mixed distribution. Finally, for a uniform distribution defined on an elliptical curve, we investigate the optimal sets of n-means and the nth quantization errors for all positive integers n.
