Florida State Quarter

Year of issue: 2004

Released on March 29, 2004, this is the 27th coin released in the 50 State Quarters Program and the second released in 2004. Florida, admitted into the Union on March 3, 1845, themed the coin, Gateway to Discovery. The coin highlights the 16th-century Spanish galleon, an image of a space shuttle, and a strip of land with Sabal palm trees.

The obverse (heads) design shows the familiar portrait of George Washington used on the quarter since 1932. But the inscriptions previously used on the reverse – "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "QUARTER DOLLAR", "LIBERTY", and "IN GOD WE TRUST" – all appear on the obverse in order to accommodate the state designs.
