Review: State quarters - Louisiana
Another quarter, another ho-hum design.
With Louisiana, the trumpet returns. Remember what I said in my review for Tennessee's quarter? The same applies here.
And, a pelican? Remember what I said in my review for South Carolina's quarter? The same applies here.
And, the state outline? It's the only good thing about this design. The Louisiana Purchase was a significant transaction that changed how the United States developed, and Louisiana did well to feature this historic event. In fact, they should have just left it at that, showing off the Louisiana Purchase and forgetting about the state bird and blaring trumpet.
Overall rating - 2 - Mediocre
