Gateway Arch: The Quarter

The US reissued new twenty-five cent pieces over the last decade, five per year, one for each state in order of admission into the Union.  This is Missouri's coin depicting the Louis and Clark Expedition returning to St. Louis, the Missouri River and, never mind the anachronism, our beloved Arch. 

In a separate program, during 2009 the Mint is issuing quarters for the District of Columbia and the 5 territories: the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, the US Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.  Be on the lookout.
