Versions designed by The Mint for the Minnesota quarter
Design narratives of these five themes were submitted to The Mint for the Minnesota quarter
- Multi-faceted state - The main element of one will be the outline of Minnesota, with a snowflake in the upper left corner, an agricultural plow near the bottom and a loon protruding from the eastern edge.
- Land of 10,000 lakes - Outline of the state overlaid with the words "Land of 10,000 Lakes." A loon is floating near the bottom, pine trees are at the top and, possibly, a boat with fishermen will be off to the right.
- Mississippi River - A nature scene representing the Mississippi River's starting point near the top and a cityscape split by the river near the bottom. The words "Headwaters of the Mississippi River" will be somewhere in the middle.
- Snowflake design - A solitary snowflake, a nod to Minnesota's famous winters. (This design concept was rejected by the mint)
- Lake recreation - A loon and a canoe with two people. Some trees will be in the background and the "Land of 10,000 Lakes" motto will appear.
