"As the result of a statewide vote, Gov. Brad Henry announced today that Oklahoma's commemorative quarter will feature the state bird and state wildflower: the scissor-tailed flycatcher and the Indian blanket (Gaillardia pulchella)."

And this is the winning design:

Hmmm ... Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, New Mexico, Oklahoma - seems that we now know all 50 state quarter designs. :ninja:

Yes, me too. Seems there was some discussion about another design: Four of the five original suggestions included the "Pioneer Woman" statue in Ponca City, OK, a monument showing a woman with a child. The woman holds a book in one hand which is considered to be a bible. In those four US Mint designs that book was not depicted. Well, at the end the bird/flower design won, with more than 50 percent of the total votes.

Just as much as they toted bibles around then, they also had household books like the "Book of Household Management", my wife has one that was her Great Grandmother's. It is actually an interesting read, definately a better read than a bible and a lot more practical. :ninja:
