Ohio State Quarter

ohio-state-quarterThe Ohio State quarter was the 17th coin introduced in the State Quarters program.

Ohio became a state on March 1, 1803 and this coin was released on March 11, 2002.

The image on the reverse side of the coin was both designed and engraved by Donna Weaver.  It celebrates Ohio's history of aviation.

The first man on the moon, astronaut Neil Armstrong and John Glenn, the first American in outer space, were both born in the state of Ohio.  Another early aviator, Orville Wright also celebrates his birthplace as Ohio.

The reverse image on the coin is that of the State of Ohio, with an astronaut on its right, and early airplane on the left, and the inscription," Birthplace Of Aviation Pioneers" placed below the airplane.

The state name of Ohio and 1803 are placed at the top of the coin, and the date of introduction 2002, along with "E Pluribus Unum" are at the bottom.

The governor at the time, Bob Taft requested design ideas from the Ohio State residents.  An 11 member Ohio Commemorative Quarter Program Committee was formed which received over 7000 submissions.

Six top designs were placed on the Internet for popular vote, with Governor Taft selecting the top choice from the United State Mint's final designs.
