Find out more about travelers found on the reverse of a coin. Don't miss the October 2003 Coin of the Month, the Missouri quarter. This coin features Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery, which set out to navigate the Missouri River in 1804. For a number of years, Missouri was the state farthest west in the United States, so it was a good place for settlers to form wagon trains and begin their journeys. Be sure to take a look at the accompanying Teacher Feature, Become an Expert, created specifically to research what contributions this state has made to our country and celebrate Missouri's history.
