The Indiana State Quarter is the fourth of five state Quarters issued in 2002. Indiana became the 19th state when it joined the Union on December 11, 1816, so it is the 19th state to be featured In the State Quarters collection. The design if the Indiana State Quarter was selected following a statewide competition organized by the Indiana Quarter design committee. First lady Judy OBannon started accepting design concepts at the Indiana State Fair on August 17, 1999. The central image on the coin is a racecar to represent the world-famous Indianapolis 500 race that is held annually at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Other design elements are a circle of 18 stars surrounding a 19th star to symbolize Indiana as the 19th state, the state map, and the state motto Crossroads of America.

Each uncirculated quarter is layered 7 times in pure 24 karat gold. Each coin is encapsulated to protect it's condition.

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. Due to the aggressive minting schedule, each State Quarter will be minted for only about 10 weeks. As a result, mintages of each quarter only are to be just a fraction of the "normal" quarters are. Regular issue coins will be minted at both the Philadelphia and the Denver Mints. 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.
