A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Commemorative State Quarter
|<<||North Carolina (NC)||Ohio (OH)||>>|
Note: All Quarter-dollar coin images from the United States Mint
Coin Issued: August 28, 2006 - the 4th coin released in 2006
Inscription: "North Dakota 1889"
Description: A pair of American bison with the sun setting behind a butte that represents North Dakota's Badlands region.
At the bottom of the coin is the issue date (2006) and the motto "E Pluribus Unum". The motto is Latin for "Out of Many, One", recognizing that out of the many colonies (or states) emerged a single nation.
Engravers: The Reverse design (the tail or State-side of the Quarter) was created by Donna Weaver (search the coin for the engraver's initials: 'dw').
The original Observe design (the front or Washington-side of the Quarter) was created by John Flanagan and first appeared in 1932. For the 50 State Quarters series, Flanagan's design was modified by William Cousins: the portrait of Washington was slightly reduced to accomodate the moving of the legends from the Reverse to the Obverse.
