Alabama's Quarter

Iowa Quarter

Gov. Don Siegelman unveiled the design for the Alabama state quarter at the Epic School in Birmingham. It will be that of Helen Keller.

Siegelman said Helen Keller, a Tuscumbia native, represents the courage of a state that has come through the civil war and civil rights, and a reminder of the importance of education.

The quarters are released according to when a state entered the Union. Alabama became the 22nd state in December 1819.
