Missouri's new commorative quarter

By Tom Weber, KWMU

Washington, DC – People can start buying the new Missouri quarter Monday morning at 11:00.

Buyers can either buy a set of two rolls (with 40 coins in each roll) or in bags of 100 or 1,000 coins.

The United States Mint is releasing the commemorative quarter, which features a picture of Lewis and Clark under the Gateway Arch on the back.

It's the 24th state quarter to be released because Missouri was the 24th state to enter the Union. That happened on Aug. 10, 1821.
