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 Nevada State Quarter if the first of five unique coins that will be issued in 2006. Five State Quarters have been issued each year since the series began in 1999. The series will come to an end in 2008 when all 50 states have been honored. Nevada is the 36th coin overall to be released because it was the 36th State to join the Union. The winning design shows three galloping wild horses, with the sun rising behind snow-capped mountains. Sprigs of sagebrush on the left and right hand sides also frame the coin. Sagebrush, which has been the official state flower since 1917, is a shrub that grows in Nevadas deserts. The design is completed with a banner bearing the states nickname, "The Silver State".

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