It's finally here! YES!

I really wanted to get that carboard cut-out thing with all the 50 states and their quarters ever since the 50 states, 50 quarters program started in 1999. I remember seeing the Utah quarter wouldn't be out 'til 2007 and thinking that'd be forever! But we made it. I never did get the carboard cut-out thing, but I did start collecting the quarters. Problem was, I went on my mission 2 years into the program and got home 2 years later so I missed out on the release of North Carolina through Illinois. I could've collected as a missionary in San Jose, Ca... but, I was doing other stuff.

I don't know how much I like the picture of the 2 trains about to crash into each other, somebody going off an awesome ski jump might've been better.

Anyway, I was just so happy to see in the Deseret News an article about the first Utah quarters being minted this week. The date to officially enter into circulation is November 5, 2007. Alright!

ps - wikipedia has a great page on the quarters

That is so cool. I guess I never knew that it was coming out in 2007, but now I know I don't have much time to wait. Thanks for the info. I'm excited too! Just seeing it made me really proud of Utah.
