Ohio is one among the states, which are situated in the Midwestern part of the United States. The state is the thirty-fourth largest state by area, the seventh most heavily populated, and the tenth most thickly populated state in the country. The name of the state was originated from ohi-yo, an Iroquois word, which means "large creek" or "great river". Originally, the Ohio State was separated from the Northwest Territory, and was incorporated as the seventeenth state into the Union. Even though there are contradictory narratives about the origin of the Ohio’s nickname, the state is historically recognized as the "Buckeye State" and the inhabitants of the state, Ohioans, are called as "Buckeyes", as well. The Ohio Government is made up of the executive branch, with the Governor as the head, the legislative branch, which includes the General Assembly of Ohio, and the judicial branch, under the control of the Supreme Court.
Coin of the Ohio State Quarter
The second memorial one-fourth of a dollar coin of the Ohio State Quarter released during 2002 honors the Ohio State, and is the seventeenth coin in the admired 50 State Quarters Program of the America’s Mint. The Ohio State was incorporated into the union on the 1st of March 1803, and the state has turned out to be the seventeenth state, incorporated into the Union. By means of the statehood status, the Ohio State is called by the nickname, “The Buckeye State".
Design of the coin
The design of the coin of the Ohio State Quarter portrays an early airplane and an astronaut, placed over as a collection on the outline of the Ohio state. The coin also includes inscriptions, such as “Ohio”, “1803“, “2002 E PLURIBUS UNUM". The tail side of the Ohio quarter coin portrays an inscription that reads “Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers".
The coin of the Ohio State Quarter was released on the 11th of March 2002 and it was engraved by Donna Weaver. 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 claim to this writing on the coin of the Ohio State Quarter is well acceptable, and the history, indicating astronauts John Glenn and Neil Armstrong were born in Ohio, as was the co-discoverer of the airplane, Orville Wright. Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright, the brother of Orville, also constructed and tested the 1905 Flyer III, which is one among their early aircraft in Ohio.
Ohio Quarter is incorporated with historic places, such as the James A. Garfield National Historic Site, Hopewell Culture National Historical Park, William Howard Taft National Historic Site, Hayes Presidential Center, Hopewell Culture National Historic Park, and the National Road or the Zane Grey Museum, Fallen Timbers and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Museum.
