Pelican Quarter

The Louisiana quarter is the latest in the series of commemorative State Quarters being issued by the U.S. Mint. It features a very nice image of a Brown Pelican, the State Bird, on the left-hand side of the coin. The Louisiana quarter is the second coin in the series to feature a bird. The South Carolina quarter, issued in 2000, features an image of a Carolina Wren, the State Bird. Official First Day Coin Covers (something I didn't even realize existed) commemorating the issuance of these coins are available from the U.S. Mint.
