    Wyoming was admitted into the Union on July 10, 1890, becoming our Nation's 44th State. Wyoming's quarter features a bucking horse with a rider. The inscriptions include "The Equality State", "Wyoming" and "1890".

    Wyoming's Wild West heritage is depicted by the bucking horse and its rider. Fort Laramie, first settled by fur trappers, became a popular destination for the pioneers traveling the Oregon Trail.

    The nickname "Equality State" came about because of Wyoming's historical role in establishing equal voting rights for women. Wyoming was the first territory to grant "female suffrage" and became the first state in the Nation to allow women to vote, serve on juries and hold public office.
