The fifth and final State Quarter of the year 2002 features Mississippi. This is the 20th coin in the State Quarters series that started in 1999. The design for the Mississippi State features blossoms and leaves of two magnolias with the official state nickname, The Magnolia State.

This Mississippi State quarter is an uncirculated coin from the Denver Mint. Please keep the coins in their protective airtite coin holder provided to maintain their uncirculated 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.
