2008-P USA Statehood Quarter - Oklahoma - Single

Oklahoma State Quarters were released on January 28, 2008 as the forty-sixth coin in the State Quarter series. This was the first release in the series for the year 2008. Oklahoma's original Statehood date was November 16, 1907.

The Oklahoma Quarter reverse design features the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. The inscriptions include the State name, Statehood date, mintage date, "E Pluribus Unum." The coin's reverse was designed by Susan Gamble and engraved by Phebe Hemphill.

The Scissor-tailed Flycatcher is Oklahoma's state bird. The design depicts the bird with its distinctive tail feathers spread. Beneath the bird, there is also the state wildflower called the Indian Blanket in a field of wildflowers.

Citizens of Oklahoma submitted over 1,000 narratives as design concepts for the new quarter. This was narrowed to five, which were sent to the United States Mint for the development of artistic design renderings. The governor chose the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher design due to overwhelming support of the citizen votes. The US Treasury Department later gave final approval. Other design concepts considered for the Oklahoma Quarter included depictions of a pioneer woman with a windmill and oil derrick, state outline and oil derrick, and state outline and calumet.

Mintage:
2008-P Oklahoma Quarter: 222,000,000
2008-D Oklahoma Quarter: 194,600,000
