  • North Dakota Quarter: The fourth quarter released in 2006 honors North Dakota, and is the 39th in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program.

    North Dakota was admitted into the Union on November 2, 1889, becoming our Nation's 39th State. Nicknamed the "Peace Garden State," North Dakota's quarter depicts a pair of grazing American bison in the foregound with a sunset view of the rugged buttes and canyons helping to define the State's famed Badlands in the background.

    The coin bears the inscriptions "North Dakota," and "1889". Additional details
