ARIZONA QUARTER: The Arizona Quarter, the 48th coin in the 50 State Quarter Program, will be released this month. The coin features an image of the Grand Canyon with a Saguaro cactus in the foreground. (A banner reading ‘Grand Canyon State’ separates the two images to signify that the Saguaro cactus doesn’t grow in the canyon.) The coin also bears the inscription ‘1912’ – the year the state was admitted into the Union.
