Description
 
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. 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."

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.

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.
