2000 Massachusetts State Quarters
The obverse will continue to bear the familiar restored 1932 John Flannagan image of George Washington.
The selected design captures a piece of the Bay State’s exceptional history. The Minutemen played a big role in protecting our nation, as they rallied together to help defeat the British during the Revolutionary War. These small, influential forces consisting of regular farmers and colonists, were always at-the-ready and were trained to assemble and fight on just a minute’s notice hence the term minutemen.
