  • Nebraska Quarter: The second quarter released in 2006 honors Nebraska, and is the 37th in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program.

    Nebraska, the "Cornhusker State" was admitted into the Union on March 1, 1867, becoming our Nation's 37th State. The quarter features an ox-drawn covered wagon carrying pioneers in the foreground and Chimney Rock, the natural wonder arising from the valley of the North Platte River, measuring 445 feet from the base to the tip. Behind the wagon, the sun is in full view.

    The coin bears the inscriptions "Nebraska", "Chimney Rock" and "1867". Nebraska is filled with reminders of America's westward expansion, including the Oregon and Mormon Trails, the Pony Express, Lewis and Clark Trail, Texas-Ogallala Trail and the Sidney-Deadwood Trail. Chimney Rock was designated a National Historic Site on August 9, 1956. Additional details
