2002-P USA Statehood Quarter - Louisiana - Single

Louisiana State Quarters were released on May 20, 2002 as the eighteenth coin in the State Quarter series. Louisianas original Statehood date was April 30, 1812.

The reverse design features the Louisiana Purchase and other symbols of the state. The inscriptions include the State name, Statehood date, mintage date, E Pluribus Unum, and Louisiana Purchase. The coins reverse was designed and engraved by John Mercanti.

Thomas Jefferson bought the Louisiana Territory from the French for a sum of $15 million in 1803. This purchase added thirteen new states to the Union. The trumpet is pictured to symbolize the Louisianas contribution to jazz, which was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. The state bird, the pelican, is also pictured.

After soliciting designs from the residents of the state, five were sent to the US Mint for approval. The final design was chosen by the governor. Over 1,000 submissions were provided for design concepts, with the majority coming from students.
