Oklahoma Quarter Bags and Rolls

The Oklahoma state quarter officially launched into circulation Monday, Jan. 28. Thousands of people were on hand at the state’s Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City where the ceremonially event took place.

United States Mint Acting Deputy Director Dan Shaver joined Governor and Mrs. Brad Henry in hosting the festivities.

“2007 was an exciting year for the Sooner State, celebrating its centennial,” said Shaver. “Today’s issuance of this beautiful Oklahoma state quarter serves as an encore to the state’s centennial, and the coin itself will serve as a lasting, nationwide tribute to Oklahoma, its heritage and its people.”

After the ceremonial events, hundreds of children received a free Oklahoma state quarter while others purchased $10 rolls and a special commemorative set for $5.

The Oklahoma quarter is the 46th coin released in the 50 State Quarters® Program. Nearly 1,000 designs were suggested for the Oklahoma state quarter.

The tails or reverse of the coin features the Scissortail Flycather - Oklahoma’s state bird - in flight with its distinctive tail feathers spread.

The bird soars above the Oklahoma state wildflower, the Indian Blanket, within a field of more wildflowers.

The coin’s design also bears the inscriptions “Oklahoma” and “1907”, which was the year Oklahoma was admitted into the Union.

During the ceremony, Governor Brad Henry remarked that the Scissortail Flycatcher,

“represents the scenic beauty of our great state.”
