The North Carolina Commemorative Coin Committee met in Raleigh on June 20, 2000, to chose the design for the North Carolina quarter. The United States Mint is issuing quarters to honor all fifty states. Two designs of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and one of the Wright Brothers' first flight were considered. The Wright Brothers design was selected. The U.S. Mint will issue the coin in March 2001, pending final approval. State quarters will be issued through 2007.
