The Minnesota state quarter coloring page shows an image of the quarter issued in 2005 that representes the state of Minnesota.
The State of Minnesota was the thirty-second state to join the Unites States of America. The design on this page features a lake scene and a
textured outline of the state behind its nickname, "Land of 10,000 Lakes." The state is actually home to many more lakes than that!
The name "Minnesota" comes from the Dakota Sioux word for "cloudy water."
The pine trees, lake, and people fishing on the coin speak of Minnesota's natural beauty and recreational resources.
Floating on the lake is Minnesota's state bird, the loon. By its name, you might think this bird would be a little...well, loony.
But it's actually quite graceful, swift, and beautiful.
The design was announced at the Governor's Fishing Opener, a celebration held every year at the start of the state's tourist season.
