Michigan 2004

Michigan marks the first quarter released in 2004, and the 26th quarter released in the 50 State Quarters® Program.  On January 26, 1837, Michigan was welcomed as part of the United States of America.

This new quarter shows the mitten-shaped outline of Michigan and the surrounding Great Lakes (Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario).  These lakes, which together make the largest body of fresh water in the world, have played a major part in Michigan's history and economy.  The lakes have brought many tourists and industries (such as shipping and mining) to Michigan's shores.

The Michigan quarter shows the state's outline and topography, and all five Great Lakes.
