Cheyenne, Wy –
Wyoming is getting ready to launch its state quarter. Governor Dave Freudenthal announced on Wednesday that the Wyoming Cowgirls basketball team, the U-W marching band, and a throng of fourth graders will help celebrate the unveiling of the quarter on September 14th. It will have the state's iconic bucking-bronco image on one side. Governor Freudenthal says he didn't understand the excitement around the state quarter at first but that has changed."I've sort of gotten to the point that I want to collect them we're only going to do this once."
The Wyoming-based Unicover Corporation is producing a decorative card that holds the brand-new quarter in see-through plastic. Those cards will be available at banks all over the state by September 14th.
