Coin of the Wyoming State Quarter
The fourth memorial one-fourth of a dollar coin of the Wyoming State Quarter released during 2007 honors the Wyoming State, and is the forty-fourth coin in the admired 50 State Quarters Program of the America’s Mint. The Wyoming State was incorporated into the union on the 10th of July 1890, and the state has turned out to be the forty-fourth state, incorporated into the Union. By means of the statehood status, the Wyoming State is called by the nickname, “The Equality State".
Design of the coin
The design of the coin of the Wyoming State Quarter includes writings, such as “Wyoming”, “1890“, and “2007 E PLURIBUS UNUM". The tail side of the Wyoming quarter coin portrays a bucking stallion and a rider with the writings "The Equality State," which is the nickname of the state.
The coin of the Wyoming State Quarter was released on the 3rd of September 2007 and it was engraved by Norman E. Nemeth. The coin is designed with the standard weight of 5.670 grams, with the diameter of 0.955 inches (24.26mm) and a thickness of 0.068 inches (1.75 mm). The composition of the Delaware State Quarter is dressed with the Cuprous-Nickel alloy, with the proportion of 91.67% of Copper and 8.33% of Nickel.
The bucking stallion and the rider represent the Wild West tradition of the Wyoming State. "Buffalo Bill" Cody incarnates this in his roving Wild West show. First established by fuzz trappers, Fort Laramie in Wyoming later turned out to be an admired destination for pioneers, roaming the Oregon Trail.
The Wyoming State was offered the nickname the "Equality State" due to its historical function in set up identical voting civil rights for women. The Wyoming State was the opening territory to award "female suffrage" and turned out to be the primary state in the United States to permit women to vote, hold public office and serve on juries. Nellie Tayloe Ross turned into the first woman, chosen as the Governor of Wyoming in 1924. Ross then became the primary woman, who was selected as the Director of the America’s Mint during 1933.
Wyoming is incorporated with historic places, such as the Fort Fetterman State Historic Site, Connor Battlefield State Historic Site, Historic Governors' Mansion, Fort Fred Steele State Historic Site and the Independence Rock State Historic Site.
