Commemorative Quarter
for Texas (TX)

The Commemorative State Quarter for Texas

Coin Issued: June 1, 2004 - the 3rd coin released in 2004

Statehood: December 29, 1845 - the 28th State

Inscriptions: "Texas 1845", "The Lone Star State"

Description: The outline of Texas with the star of the State flag. Around the edge of the coin is a lariat to symbolize the cattle and cowboy history of Texas.

At the bottom of the coin is the issue date (2004) 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 Norm Nemeth (search the coin for the engraver's initials: 'nen').

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.
