Montana State Quarter
The first commemorative quarter-dollar coin released in 2007 honors Montana, and is the 41st coin in the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program. Montana, nicknamed “Big Sky Country,” was admitted into the Union on November 8, 1889, becoming our Nation’s 41st state. The reverse of Montana’s quarter features a bison skull depicted above the diverse Montana landscape with the inscription “Big Sky Country.” The coin also bears the inscriptions “Montana” and “1889.”

The governor of Montana created the Montana Quarter Design Selection Commission to recommend designs. Four finalist designs were forwarded to the United States Mint. The “Bison Skull” design was selected by a public vote. The US Treasury Department later gave final approval. Other designs considered for the Montana State Quarter included a bull elk, an outline of the state, and the big sky river.
