Georgia State Quarter
The Georgia quarter, the fourth quarter released under the 50 State Quarters® Program
, is a real peach. The selected design incorporates several symbols associated with this traditional, yet very diverse southern state.
Just from studying the Georgia quarter design, one can learn a lot about the fourth state of the Union. The selected design prominently features the peach - a symbol long associated with the state - within the confines of a silhouetted outline of the state. Live Oak sprigs border the central design paying homage to the official state tree, the Live Oak. And if you ever need to know the Georgia state motto, simply look across the top of the design, where the words "Wisdom, Justice, Moderation," grace a hanging banner.
