Description
 
The Nebraska State Quarter was the second State Quarter to be issued in 2006, following the release of the Nevada coin earlier in the year. It will be followed by coins of Colorado, North Dakota, and South Dakota to complete the State Quarters for 2006. The Nebraska State Quarter depicts an ox-drawn covered wagon carrying pioneers on their journey west through Nebraska on the Oregon Trail, they are passing Chimney Rock. Other historic trails to the west passed through Nebraska in the 1800's. Among them were the Mormon Trail, the Pony Express, the Lewis and Clark Trail, the Texas-Ogallala Trail and the Sidney-Deadwood Trail.

Starting with New Hampshire the US Mint introduced Government Wrapped Roll pairs. Each pair contains a 40 coin of uncirculated quarters from the Philadelphia and Denver Mint. The value of these Government wrapped rolls is in how many vs how few are produced during the 10 week period the US Mint issues the quarter and the popularity of the state and or design.

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 mintmarks 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.
