Cheyenne, Wy – The bucking horse and rider logo and the
"Equality State" motto has been chosen by Governor Freudenthal to appear on the state quarter that the U-S Mint will issue.
Freudenthal says the design represents both Wyoming's proud
Western heritage and its historical role in establishing equal
voting rights for women.
U-S Treasury Secretary John Snow will have ultimate approval
over the design.
Wyoming's quarter is scheduled to be released in the summer of
2007. The states are being honored in the order of their admission
to the union. Wyoming was the 44th state.
