The Oklahoma state quarter officially launched into circulation Monday, Jan. 28. Thousands of people were on hand at the state's Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City where the ceremonially event took place.
United States Mint Acting Deputy Director Dan Shaver joined Governor and Mrs. Brad Henry in hosting the festivities.
"2007 was an exciting year for the Sooner State, celebrating its centennial,” said Shaver. "Today's issuance of this beautiful Oklahoma quarter serves as an encore to the state's centennial, and the coin itself will serve as a lasting, nationwide tribute to Oklahoma, its heritage and its people.”
