Hawaii: The Design of the Last State Quarter is Revealed

Quick nod to the Coin Collecting News blog for this find. The design of the last of the 50 State Quarters has been revealed.  Hawaii, the 50th state to enter the United States, will get its quarter introduced toward the end of 2008.

From the Honolulu Advertiser:

A 25-cent piece featuring the mighty profile of King Kamehameha, the eight main islands, our state motto (Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘aina e ka pono), admission year and — in case anyone doesn’t get it — the word “Hawaii” will be jingling in pockets and purses across the U.S.

Gov. Linda Lingle yesterday announced formal approval of the Hawai’i commemorative quarter, the last of 50 such quarters to be authorized and issued by the U.S. Mint. . . .

Personally, I like seeing the runner-up coin designs. It would have been cool to have a surfing quarter in production…
