One image can’t fully represent a state with the rich history of Kansas, so expect more spirited debate about the Kansas quarter once it hits palms and pockets. In any case, it was exciting to see the minting of the commemorative quarter begin in Denver last week, on the way to its official release Sept. 9 at the Kansas State Fair. Our fears that Kansas’ would join the ugly coins in the U.S. Mint’s state program were relieved, too; the design looks artful but uncluttered. It will be great to see Kansas get noticed beyond its borders this year for more than BTK and evolution.
