You have come to the right place if you are looking for information about the Oklahoma Quarter
from the 50 State Quarter Program. The Oklahoma Quarter was issued by the United States Mint

The Oklahoma Quarter is the 46th quarter in the State Quarter Program. It was issued on January 28, 2008. It was the 46th State Quarter issued, because Oklahoma was the 46th state to be admitted to the Union.
According to the US Mint, total Oklahoma Quarter mintage for circulation was 416,600,000 coins. If you sort the State Quarters in ascending order by mintage, Oklahoma would rank 1st. (State Quarter mintage ranges from 446,600,000 to 1,594,616,000.)
Like all commemorative State Quarters, the obverse side of the Oklahoma Quarter shows President Washington, but it is the reverse side of the coin we will focus on here.
The Oklahoma Quarter coin was engraved by Phebe Hemphill and has a great design. At the top of the coin, you will see the name Oklahoma and just below it the year 1907, which is the year Oklahoma became a state.
At the very bottom of the coin, it says "E Pluribus Unum" which means one out of many - Oklahoma is one of the many 50 states. Above that, is the year the coin was issued, which in this case is 2008.
The actual design that was submitted by the state of Oklahoma shows Scissor-tailed flycatcher with Indian blankets in background.
There is no inscription or banner on this coin..
