Indiana State Quarter

indiana-state-quarterThe Indiana State quarter was the 19th coin released in the State Quarters Program on August 2, 2002.  Statehood for Indiana was originally on December 11, 1816.

The design on the reverse side of the Louisiana State quarter features a racing car over the top of an outline of the State of Indiana.  Underneath the image of the racecar is the inscription, "Crossroads Of America".  Surrounding the wheels on the left side of the car are 19 stars which signify Indiana's Statehood submission.

In 1909, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was built for the purposes of automotive research.  It has become better known today as the host for the famous Indianapolis 500, a motor Speedway race that's been run almost every year since 1911.

The name of the state and date of statehood are placed at the top of the coin, and "E Pluribus Unum" along with 2002 are at the bottom side of the Indiana State quarter.

Judy O'Bannon, the First Lady of Indiana at the time, asked for designs for the quarter at the State fair, on August 17, 1999.  From there, 3736 submissions were given to the Indiana Quarter Design Committee.  17 semi finalists emerged, and eventually four design concepts were voted on by the residents of Indiana.

Governor O'Bannon had final say for the end design, and chose the "Crossroads Of America" as the winner.
