Georgia State Quarter

georgia-state-quarterThe fourth coin released in the State Quarters series was for the state of Georgia.  The Georgia State quarter was released on July 19, 1999.  Statehood for Georgia was originally on January 2, 1788.

Not surprisingly, the Georgia peach is featured on the reverse side of this quarter.  An outline of the state of Georgia surrounds the peach.  Live oak sprigs, which is the state tree, are on either side of the state's image.

The state motto, "Wisdom, Justice, Moderation", also surrounds the peach.  The top of the quarter has the inscription of the original date of statehood, and the state name.  As with the other quarters in the program,"E Pluribus Unum", and the coin's date of release is at the bottom.

Originally designed by T. James Farrell, Roy Eugene Barnes, the governor of Georgia at the time, made the final image selection for the Georgia State quarter.
