  • Minnesota Quarter:The second quarter released in 2005 honors Minnesota and is the 32nd in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program.

    Minnesota was admitted into the Union on May 11, 1858, becoming our Nation's 32nd State. Nicknamed the "Land of 10,000 Lakes," Minnesota's quarter features a tree-lined lake with two people fishing, a loon on the water and a textured outline of the state surrounding its nickname.

    The coin bears the inscriptions "Minnesota," and "1858". Additional details
