Coin Concepts -- “Mint Conditions”

  • Designs shall maintain “a dignity befitting the Nation’s coinage”.

  • Designs shall have “a broad appeal” and avoid “controversial subjects or symbols likely to offend”.

  • Suitable subject matter include “State Landmarks”, “landscapes”, “historically significant buildings”, “state icons” and outlines of the state.

Coin Concepts -- “Mint Conditions”

  • “No head and shoulder portrait or bust” may be included.

  • State mottos are acceptable, but other inscriptions should not be included.

Final Design Selection -- Citizen Input

  • Governor Almond will present the finalist designs to the citizens of Rhode Island.

  • At that point, Rhode Islanders will be encouraged to “cast their vote” for the design of the Rhode Island quarter

“Cast Your Vote”

  • Rhode Islanders will cast their vote:

    • Through a special fax line

    • Through an Internet poll over Governor Almond’s web site

    • Via a mail-in form available through the media

  • The highest vote-getter will be Rhode Island’s choice for the Rhode Island quarter.
