2003: USA - America State Quarter - Alabama
2003: USA - America State Quarter - Illinois
Launched in 1999, the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program was a 10-year initiative that honored each of the nation’s states in the order that they ratified the Constitution or were admitted into the Union. Each quarter was produced for about 10 weeks and will never be produced again. State designs are displayed on the reverse (tails) of the quarters, while the obverse design displays the familiar image of George Washington. But, to accommodate state designs on the reverse, the words “United States of America,” “Quarter Dollar,” “Liberty,” and “In God We Trust” all appear on the obverse.
Released on March 17, 2003, this is the 22nd coin released in 50 State Quarters Program and the second coin released in 2003. Alabama, who was admitted into the Union on December 14, 1819, themed the coin, Spirit of Courage. It highlights an image of Helen Keller with her name in English and in a reduced-size version of Braille, an Alabama long leaf pine branch wtih magnolias gracing the sides of the design, and the Spirit of Courage banner underlining the image.
