The U.S. Mint has approved four design finalists for the commemorative Nebraska state quarter. In a May 3 letter, Mint Director Henrietta Holsman Fore forwarded the finalists to Gov. Dave Heineman.
From the four, Heineman will select one that will go to U.S. Treasury Secretary John Snow for final approval. The Nebraska quarter is scheduled to be issued to the public in spring 2006.
The Nebraska State Quarter Design Committee in September 2004 selected four design concepts for the state quarter. With input from the committee, the Mint developed artwork for each design concept.
Below are the four design finalists.
