Texas State Quarters
Texas State Quarters are the 28th variety in a series of fifty design changes over a ten year period from 1999 to 2008. This Quarter was released into circulation on June 1, 2004. The reverse of the Texas Quarter is very simple; it has a textured outline of the state with a single star superimposed on it as a symbol of the lone star state. Surrounding the entire design is a rope that symbolizes the cowboy heritage of the Wild West.
The obverse of the coin is identical on all coins in this series. It features a portrait of George Washington with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "QUARTER DOLLAR", "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" arranged around the portrait.
The reverse of the coin bears the inscriptions "TEXAS 1845”, "THE LONE STAR STATE" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" along with the date of 2004.
