2003 ILLinois State Quarters
The obverse will continue to bear the familiar restored 1932 John Flannagan image of George Washington.
The Prairie State, also commonly known as the Land of Lincoln, pays tribute to our nation’s 16th president. The young Lincoln lived and practiced law in Springfield before becoming one of our nation’s greatest leaders. President Lincoln’s historic home, burial site, and new presidential library are all located in the Springfield area. The final design, Land of Lincoln–21st State/Century, represents the history and future of Illinois.
