Florida's state quarter is a combination of new and old. The quarter shows a scene of a Spanish Galleon landing on Florida's sandy beaches with Cabbage Palmettos (palm trees) growing on the shore. The quarter also pays homage to Florida's role is space exploration. Above the Spanish Galleon is the Space Shuttle flying by.
Along the bottom, the quarter's caption reads "Gateway to Discovery."
