Quarter Dollar South Dakota silver coin, minted by the United States Mint in 2006.
In 1999, President Bill Clinton approved a programme to try to spread the history of each of the states that make up the United States. The 50-state quarter dollar programme was minted until 2008 and was a huge success in the giant United States. They were also minted in 3 different states and in slight variations. In total, approximately 35 million coins were produced in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco.
This coin commemorates the accession of South Dakota, which took place on 2 November 1889. A total of 510,800,000 issues were produced and the coin was minted for the first time on 6 November 2006.
It was designed by artist John Mercanti. On the cross, we see three of the state's most representative symbols: first, the famous Mount Rushmore, with the faces of the nation's founding fathers; above them, a common pheasant, one of the most widespread birds in the area; and two ears of wheat, as one of the main sources of wealth is agriculture.
At the top is the name of the country along with its year of accession to the United States, while at the bottom is the year of issue of the coin and the motto 'E pluribus unum' (out of many, one).
On the face is the face of George Washington, considered one of the country's founding fathers. He, with a spectacular hair design in which many of the curls of his hair are visible, gazes intently at the left side of the coin. Above him, the name of the country and on the sides, the mottos 'Liberty' and 'In god we trust'. Below, the name of the collection.
