California Quarter Debuts Monday

Sponsored by:

The California quarter makes its debut Monday.

The commemorative coin depicts conservationist John Muir gazing at Yosemite´s Half Dome as a California condor flies overhead. It is the 31st 25-cent piece to be produced as part of a 10-year, 50-state quarters program conducted by the U.S. Mint.

The quarters are issued to mark the order in which states ratified the Constitution and joined the union. California became a state on September 9th, 1850, between Wisconsin and Minnesota.
