Montana State Quarter Designs Online for Voting

HELENA - Four potential designs for a new Montana quarter to be released early next year can be viewed on the governor's Web site. Montana residents will be able to vote on their favorite. Governor Schweitzer will pick the winner at the end of March.

Montana's four quarter designs include a bull elk, a bison skull, the state outline and one called the "Big Sky Country" design.

The bull elk quarter shows an elk and the sun rising over the horizon of the plains and mountains.

One has a bison skull at the center of the coin, with mountains in the background and the words "Big Sky Country."

The state outline fills one quarter design. Inside the outline, the west is filled with mountains tapering to the eastern Montana plains and the sun.

The final design has the words "Big Sky Country" are displayed over a mountain range, with a river emerging from the mountains and snaking down the plains.
