Governor unveils new state quarter

Here's the winning design, which got 45% of the vote in a recent online poll:

Winning Quarter Design"Washington has a vested interest in the quarter – all quarters already have one side that honors Washington with a profile of our first president," said Governor Christine Gregoire.

"With the minting of our design, these quarters will be 100 percent Washington."

The governor's office said the imagery was chosen because, "Mount Rainier is an internationally recognized icon for Washington, [and] salmon are a well-known image of northwest culture."
