Oklahoma State Quarter
The U.S. State Quarter program was a great way to show off states' pride and personality while revamping the look of the quarter.
The Oklahoma State Quarter was released in 2008, the 10th year of the State Quarter program. Oklahoma was the 1st quarter released that year.
The official release date was January 28, 2008. State quarters were released in the order states joined the United States. As such, Oklahoma was the 46th State Quarter released.
Total mintage of the Oklahoma quarter was 416,600,000 which is worth a total of $104.15 million.
The Oklahoma quarter is plane and simple, much like the Midwestern charm for which the state is known. The quarter depicts the state's official state wildlife symbols. First, the Scissor-tailed flycatcher, the state bird, is shown flying across the center of the quarter.
In the background, Indian Blanket flowers are shown. Indian Blankets are Oklahoma's State Wildflower.
