The Minnesota State Quarter was the second State Quarter to be issued in 2005 and 32nd coin in the overall collection that will eventually honor all 50 states. The Minnesota State Quarter design celebrates the state as the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The official State motto is L'Etoile du Nord (Star on the North), but its unofficial nickname Land of 10,000 Lakes is contained within an outline map of the state. The coin design also shows a tree-lined lake with two people fishing from a boat. The loon in the foreground is the state bird. The fishermen symbolize the tremendous popularity of both fishing and outdoor activities in Minnesota.

Each Roll contains 40 uncirculated Quarters taken out from Government sewn bags. Please keep the coins in their protective tube 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.
