Vermont State Quarter
Vermont is a U.S. state, which is located in the New England area of the northeastern part of the country. It is the sixth smallest state by land area and the second least crowded state in the country. It is the single New England-situated state that has not bordered with the Atlantic Ocean. About half of the western border of the Vermont State is formed by the Lake Champlain, which it splits with the New York State. With the Green Mountains, the eastern side of Vermont State is bordered by New Hampshire, whereas the western side of the state is surrounded by New York, across the Connecticut River. While the northern part of the Vermont State is bordered by the Quebec Provinces of Canada, the southern side of the State is surrounded by Massachusetts. Vermont was at first inhabited by two chief Native American ethnic groups, such as the Iroquois ethnic group and the Algonquian-speaking Abenaki ethnic group.

The Vermont State was incorporated into the union on the 4th of March 1791, and the state has turned out to be the fourteenth, incorporated into the Union. By means of the statehood status, the Vermont State is called by the nickname, “The Green Mountain State".
