Connecticut State Quarter

connecticut-state-quarter
The fifth coin released, and the last one in the 1999 series, was for the state of Connecticut.  Connecticut became a state of the Union on January 9, 1788.  The Connecticut State quarter was released on October 12, 1999.

The design on the reverse side of the coin features a beautiful image of "The Charter Oak".

The Governor at the time, John Rowland, selected the final design which featured the state tree.  In 1687, Connecticut's government was challenged by a British representative for King James II.  Captain Joseph Wadsworth took the Connecticut charter and hid it in an oak tree.  The tree later became known as "The Charter Oak".

T. James Farrell designed the image for the Connecticut State quarter.   "E Pluribus Unum", and the coin's date of mintage is at the bottom, and the name of the state and its statehood date are at the top of the image.
