You have come to the right place if you are looking for information about the Nebraska Quarter
from the 50 State Quarter Program. The Nebraska Quarter was issued by the United States Mint
to commemorate the state of Nebraska. For your convenience, you can see a picture of the
Nebraska Quarter on the right.
The Nebraska Quarter is the 37th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on April 3, 2006. It was the 37th State Quarter issued, because Nebraska was the 37th state to be admitted to the Union.
According to the US Mint, total Nebraska Quarter mintage for circulation was 594,400,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Nebraska would rank 28th. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)
Like all commemorative State Quarters, the obverse side of the Nebraska Quarter shows President Washington, but it is the reverse side of the coin we will focus on here.
The Nebraska Quarter coin was engraved by Charles L. Vickers and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Nebraska and just below it the year 1867, which is the year Nebraska became a state.
At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Nebraska is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2006.
The actual design that was submitted by the state of Nebraska shows Chimney Rock and covered wagon.
The inscription reads "Chimney Rock".
The 50 quarters from this program were issued between 1999 and 2008. Both the
