Texas 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 Texas State Quarter was released in 2004, the 6th year of the State Quarter program. Texas was the 3rd quarter released that year.
The official release date was June 1, 2004. State quarters were released in the order states joined the United States. As such, Texas was the 28th State Quarter released.
Total mintage of the Texas quarter was 541,800,000 which is worth a total of $135.45 million.
Texas\'s state quarter captures the state's boldness, simplicity, and fierce independence.
The quarter shows an outline of Texas with a large "Lone Star" superimposed on top. The Lone Star appears on the Texas State Flag as well and is the state's most recognizable symbol. The caption near the bottom of the quarter reads "The Lone Star State."
Around the outside of the quarter is a lasso rope which pays tribute to the state's rich farming and \'old-west\' heritage.
