Vermont State Coin

On August 18, 2000, Governor Howard B. Dean, M.D. unveiled his choice for the final design for the Vermont State Quarter. His decision marked the end of an extensive public process that included gathering designs from throughout the state, a juried selection of five finalists which, were submitted to the U.S. Mint, and lots of fine tuning.

The result is a coin that is favored by a broad majority of Vermonters and which will take its place in the nation's change purses in July of 2001 when the Mint releases the commemorative coin.
