Review: State quarters - Minnesota
You know, I'm starting to get the impression that nature scenes don't work so well on the quarter-sized canvas. I like the outline of Minnesota on this quarter, and I even like the motto, "Land of 10,000 Lakes." But the fishermen on the lake look kind of mushy, and the treeline in the background is generic and boring. And what the hell is wrong with that loony bird in the foreground? Is it the state bird? Remember that eagles, falcons, and hawks are cool to have as a state bird, and therefore they would be cool to feature on the quarter design. Any others -- not so much.
Overall rating - 2 - Mediocre
Oregon's coming up.
