Short video article by KTEN.com showing the minting of the Oklahoma quarterStriking of the first Oklahoma state commemorative quarters began in the U.S. Mint's Denver facility this week with a single ceremonial push of a button.

Oklahoma's First Family was on hand to receive the very first shiny minted quarters. In a NewsOK.com article, Oklahoma's image is in mint condition, Governor Brad Henry was quoted at the event saying:

 

"I think there's tremendous Oklahoma pride here today,” Henry said after the ceremony. "Coming on the heels of the state centennial, I think it's appropriate that the Oklahoma quarter is the first one in 2008, and it gives Oklahoma a chance to shine throughout the land.”

The video article by KTEN.com is currently the best source to see an actual photo or image of the Oklahoma quarter.
