Georgia State Quarter Released

The official Georgia state quarter was released. Designed by T. James Ferrell, the quarter features a peach - Georgia’s state fruit - within an outline of the state. Live Oak (official state tree) leaves are on either side of the outline map. The Georgia state motto - Wisdom, Justice, Moderation - are on a banner across the quarter. At the top are the word GEORGIA and the date 1788 - when Georgia ratified the U.S. Constitution. At the bottom are the release date - 1999 - and the words E PLURIBUS UNUM.
