Commemorative Quarter
for Ohio (OH)

The Commemorative State Quarter for Ohio

Coin Issued: March 11, 2002 - the 2nd coin released in 2002

Statehood: March 1, 1803 - the 17th State

Inscriptions: "Ohio 1803", "Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers"

Description: To mark Ohio's contributions to aviation, the coin has a Wright Flyer on the left and a Space Suit on the right. In the background is the outline of Ohio.

At the bottom of the coin is the issue date (2002) 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.
