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 fifth and final State Quarter of the year 2003 honors Arkansas. This is the 25th coin in the State Quarters series, so it also marks the exact half-way point in the collection that will eventually feature all 50 states. Arkansas is known as The Natural State. The coin depicts Rice Stalks, a diamond, and a mallard flying above the lake. The rice represents Arkansas agricultural heritage and the fact that it remains the leading producer of rice in the United States. The diamond symbolizes Arkansas as one of the few places in the U.S. where diamonds are mined. The lake and mallard represent the states sporting traditions

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