  • Wisconsin Quarter The Wisconsin quarter was the fifth quarter of 2004 and the 30th quarter released in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program.

    Wisconsin was admitted into the Union on May 29, 1848 becoming our Nation's 30th State. The Wisconsin quarter is representative of the state's reputation of "America's Dairy Land".

    The quarter's design is an agricultural theme featuring a cow, a round of cheese and an ear of corn. The inscription on the coin reads "Forward", the State motto.

    Wisconsin produces over 350 varities of award-winning cheeses. In addition, there are approximately 17,000 dairy farms with over one million cows, producing an average of 17,306 gallons of milk per cow per year.
