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.
The second State Quarter of the year 2003 honored Alabama and was released into circulation by the U.S. Mint on March 17, 2003. Alabama was the 22nd state to join the Union, so the Alabama State Quarter was the 22nd coin in the series. The Alabama State Quarter depicts Keller sitting with a book on her lap. She learned to read with Braille, and her name appears in Braille above the English Inscription. A long leaf pine branch (state tree) is on the left, while magnolias (state flower) are on the right. The Spirit of Courage banner at the bottom celebrates Kellers unique place in Alabama and U.S. history.

Each coin is encapsulated - please keep the coins in their protective coin holder to maintain their condition.
