    Iowa was admitted into the Union on December 28, 1846 becoming our Nation's 29th State. Nicknamed the "Hawkeye State," Iowa's quarter features a one-room schoolhouse with a teacher and students planting a tree. The design is based on "Arbor Day", a painting by Grant Wood, an Iowan native.

    The coin bears the inscriptions "Foundation in Education," and "Grant Wood". Additional details
