Winning design chosen for the Idaho quarter.
Other versions designed by The Mint for the Idaho quarter
Design narratives submitted to the mint
- "Farmland Tapestry" -- described by the committee as a "mosaic created from an aerial view of various crops and orchards" that symbolized the state's agricultural heritage and cultural diversity.
- Peregrine falcon -- a reflection of the Birds of Prey National Conservation Area and World Center for Birds of Prey in Idaho, with the raptor's face emerging from the left side of the coin offset by the state motto "Esto Perpetua" — "may it be forever" — accompanying the once-endangered species that is now found throughout the state.
- Sawtooth Range -- its jagged peaks "would be a symbol worthy of Idaho's rugged beauty," Gov. Kempthorne said
- State song lyrics -- The musically inspired suggestion would feature the words to the chorus, "And here we have Idaho, Winning her way to fame," on either side of an outline of the state.
- State name -- "Idaho" would be written prominently across the center of the coin with each of the letters attempting to symbolize the state's rugged individualism.
