The Commemorative State Quarter for Vermont

Coin Issued: August 6, 2001 - the 4th coin released in 2001

Statehood: March 4, 1791 - the 14th State

Inscriptions: "Vermont 1791", "Freedom and Unity"

Description: In the foreground are two Maple trees with a man collecting sap for the making of maple syrup. In the background is Camel's Hump Mountain. To the right is Vermont's State Motto: "Freedom and Unity".

The State Tree of Vermont is the Sugar Maple.

At the bottom of the coin is the issue date (2001) 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 T. James Ferrell (search the coin for the engraver's initials: 'tjf').

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.
