Arkansas's original Statehood date was August 10, 1821.
The reverse design features rice stalks, a diamond, and a mallard. The inscriptions include the State name. The reverse was designed by Dortha Scott and engraved by John Mercanti.
Arkansas is home to the Crater of Diamonds State Park, the oldest diamond mine in North America. The reverse design features a mallard flying above a lake to represent the state's many natural lakes. Rice stalks are also used since Arkansas is the leading producer of grain in the United States.
The State Medallion series is based on artwork from the US Mint which was used on the 50 State Quarter Program. The medallions will come in a two medallion set containing a quarter size (24.26mm) medallion and a 38mm medallion. There will be special state map that you can place the smaller ones in, if you so desire. The set (both medallions) will have the same tracking number so please do not release both at the same time.
