Description
 
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 were featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. On the front, otherwise known as the obverse, the mintmarks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait. The small "S" indicates San Francisco Mint.

North Carolina was the 12th state of the original 13 colonies to ratify the Constitution. As a result, it is the 12th state to be honored with a unique coin in the Commemorative 50 States Quarter Program, initiated by the U.S. Mint. North Carolina selected the Wright Brothers first airplane flight in 1903 for the coins design. The design is based upon a photograph that was actually taken during the famous first flight, capturing an image of Wilbur, Orvilles brother, running along side the plane.
 
Each coin is encapsulated - please keep the coins in their protective coin holder to maintain their condition.
