Description
 
The Oklahoma State Quarter is the first State Quarter issued in 2008. State quarters are issued in the order in which the states joined the Union. Oklahoma was admitted to statehood in 1889 as the 46th state, Oklahoma is the 46th State Quarter. All State Quarters are struck for circulation at both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, and the mintage for each coin is restricted for approximately 10 weeks.
Following the State Quarter series, the U.S. Mint will also issue a series of six commemorative Quarters in 2009 to honor the District of Columbia and the 5 U.S. territories - Puerto Rico, Guam, American Somoa, U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands.
The final design for this Oklahoma quarter is the State Bird, the "Scissortail Flycatcher", in flight together with the state wildflower, Indian Blanket. The Indian Blanket represents represents the state's Native American heritage.


In December 1997, America's most adventurous coin program became a reality when President Clinton signed legislation authorizing the U.S. Mint to issue the innovative 50 State Quarters collection. Starting in January 1999, each of the 50 states in the Union will be honored on a unique Quarter Dollar commemorative coin. Five states will be featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. The mint marks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait on the obverse: the small "P" indicates the Philadelphia Mint and the small "D" refers to the Denver.
