Review: State quarters - Rhode Island
I don't hate this quarter design, but I don't particularly like it either. I know, Rhode Island (or more properly, the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations) has a lot of coastline and water, and it is probably deserving of the nickname "The Ocean State," but this design could have been so much cooler. They could have featured something that referenced the Naval War College. They could have focused on something recalling the state's history. Or they could have even used the emblem that's on the state flag, an anchor surrounded by stars. That would have looked nice.
But, instead, they chose to feature some nondescript sailboat.
Overall rating - 2 - Mediocre
Vermont's turn is coming up.
