State quarter coins have historical symbols; Oklahomans want Bible shown





PONCA CITY, Okla. -- The symbol known as the Pioneer Woman will probably be featured on Oklahoma's state quarter but she may not be carrying her trademark Bible.

There are five proposed designs for the quarter, which will be produced by the U.S. Mint as part of the 50 State Quarters Program. Oklahoma's coin would be released in 2008.

Four of the proposed designs feature Pioneer Woman and the other features the scissortail flycatcher, the state bird, the Daily Oklahoman reported Friday.

But, some Oklahomans, including Gov. Brad Henry, want the Pioneer Woman to be holding her Bible on the quarter.
