Idaho Quarter Features a Peregrine Falcon

3 August 2007
The Peregrine Falcon in profile is the prominent image on the Idaho quarter, the 43rd coin released by the United States Mint in the popular 50 State Quarters Program. Next to the Peregrine Falcon profile are a map of the state and the state motto, "Esto Perpetua" (May it Be Forever), and above the falcon are the inscriptions "Idaho" and "1890," representing the year Idaho entered the Union.

For the first time in the history of the 50 State Quarters
