I missed North Dakota before and Washington this time. Had also forgotten that I'd taken it before.

While I appreciate the simplicity, I think Michigan's is a little boring. There really needs to be a car on there somewhere.

I can see why you would say that, but I think sleeping bear dunes would be better than a car.

I think it fits just fine. John Muir would want to keep it simple.

I think honoring "the Father of National Parks", some of the astounding natural beauty he worked to protect, and one of our great conservation success stories is pretty interesting!

17/25, and #1 I got 23/25, so altogether I got 40/50. I even have all state quarters, so I am disappointed that I didn't get all of them. ):

I love that the best the states with the worst education systems can do amounts to: "Look, we got a bridge!", "Look, we got horsies!", or "Look, somebody famous was born here!".

As opposed to the capitol building (Maryland), a tree (Connecticut), a famous guy and a rock (California)? By their very nature, quarter designs are going to be somewhat superficial, so I'm not sure what your point is (something political maybe?).

(US News says those three are the top state school systems.)

Yeah, but what about Iowa? Apparently they have a "foundation in education" no idea what kind of education they may be talking about. Football?

@bezz -- it's a reference to the paintings of Grant Wood (his most famous is "American Gothic" but painting depicted on the quarter is "Arbor Day"). I think honoring a famous artist from your state is a fine use of a quarter.

@bezz -- Iowa has always prioritized education. It's currently ranked #5 overall, and has the highest public high school graduation rate (#4 if you include private schools). The University of Iowa was founded around the same time Iowa became a state, which may be what the quarter is referring to, and it had the first law school west of the Mississippi. Not bad for a state with not much else besides corn and hogs!

The New River Bridge is a famous landmark in WV, and has been featured in national TV commercials. What else would you suggest they use on their quarter? Generic mountains? Harper's Ferry which would be difficult to recognize, or the Greenbrier Hotel, a resort for rich people?

Maybe they should give a grammar lesson on the back of quarters for you.

Yes, how silly to celebrate Kentucky's horses when it is literally world-renowned for horses. People come from all over the US and the world to buy Kentucky thoroughbreds. The biggest horse race in the world is the Kentucky Derby. Horses are a huge part of the culture and economy. Also, the house on the quarter is "My Old Kentucky Home". A controversial song, but a beautiful landmark nevertheless. But "Look, we got horsies" is what you got from that quarter smh.

The first time my dad saw the Alabama quarter, not realizing it was Helen Keller on it, he thought it was really strange that a state would celebrate the fact that it was the first one to put a woman to death in the electric chair. Makes me smile every time I see an Alabama quarter.
