St. Louis, Mo. – The new Missouri commemorative quarter will be launched this weekend at the state fair in Sedalia.
Missouri, being the 24th state to enter the union, is the 24th state to get its own quarter.
Its design, which was selected by a public vote, features explorers Lewis and Clark and the Gateway Arch. The director of the U-S Mint, Henrietta Holsman Fore, says she is proud of the new 25-cent piece.
