The Story

With the Arkansas quarter, we reach the halfway point in the 50 State Quarters Program. State number 25 is nicknamed “The Natural State” because of its many natural resources, including streams, lakes, farmland, wildlife, and minerals.

Visitors to Arkansas can hunt for fish, ducks, and even diamonds! One of the diamond mines there may be the oldest in North America, and the only one that people can visit and visitors can keep what they find. Since Arkansas also produces lots of rice, the picture on the quarter (rice stalks, a diamond, and a duck flying over a lake in a forest) make a nice symbol of the richness of Arkansas.
