Launched in 1999, the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters series was a 10-year program that honored each of the nation's states in the order that they were admitted into the union. Each design was produced for 10 weeks and will never be used again. The reverse features unique designs representing each state while the obverse displays the familiar image of George Washington that has been the hallmark of the quarter dollar since 1932.
The reverse of the 2000 South Carolina State Quarter features an outline of the state and a collection of the state's symbols including: the state bird, the Carolina wren; the state flower, the yellow Jessamine; and the state tree, the Sabal palmetto.
