State Quarters?

Recommended Posts

I was just recently reading in the newspaper about my state's (Washington) quarter soon to be released, here is the design

I like it, it seems a bit busy, but compared to the other two entries its definately the best.

So i ask you, what has been your favorite State Quarter released thus far, design wise, also, if youre state has already released a quarter, are you satisfied with the design and the state icons featured on it? I have noticed some states put some stupid things on their quarters...

I think Alabama could have come up with something much better for their state quarter. Although, I think the braille is a very nice touch.

I have liked the quarters that have used the outline of the state. One of my biggest disappointments has been Iowa's quarter.

but that beauty can make you richer, if you find one with an extra leaf on the husk it is considered a mistake and this mistake can make you anywhere from $200-$20,000 richer

I will agree with Wisconsin being one of the worst.

All we got for Mississippi's quarter was a pile of magnolias, and in fact, we were the only state that did not have a state wide quarter design contest. I think the Mississippi Arts Commission had three designs drawn: the magnolias, one with the outline of the state with a magnolia, and one with a magnolia (the state flower) and the mockingbird (the state bird). Then-Governor Ronnie Musgrove chose the Magnolia one. Needless to say, a year or so later, he lost his bid for re-election to Haley Barbour.

However, if you do get a hold of a Mississippi quarter, you will notice that each flower has six petals. The six petals make up the magnolia blossom, and these symbolize the nations or tribes that have ruled Mississippi and thus make up its history. (BTW, the 6 rulers are Native Americans, France, Spain, Great Britain, the Confederate States, and the United States).

Well, when and if I find one of those my opinion on it will make a complete 180. But until then, I hate it :P

California's quarter should have had the Golden Gate Bridge on it. Instead we got Half Dome in Yosemite Park.

Well there are other possibilities....but most of them would result in some soon deleted Mormon joke.

I guess the only safe suggestion would be a beehive.
