Treasures of the United States: Iowa

The state of Iowa, originally a territory of Wisconsin west of the Mississippi River, was named after the Iowa River, which in turn was named after the Iowa Indians who lived in the territory. With its fertile, rolling prairies, Iowa is one of the foremost farming states in the United States. One fifth of the nation’s corn harvest is produced in Iowa. Wet springs combined with warm summers create a favorable environment for the planting of corn and soybeans in the state’s topgrade farmland.

Iowa produced the first gasoline-powered tractor in 1892 and today the state claims the largest tractor manufacturing plant in the U.S. Iowa boasts one of the top state fairs in the nation and the inventor of sliced bread was Iowa born!

The official state rock of Iowa is Quartz Geode. Geodes are spherical to subspherical rock structures with an internal cavity lined with mineral materials. They have a durable outer wall that is more resistant to weathering than the surrounding bedrock. This allows the geode to survive intact when the surrounding bedrock weathers away. When cracked open, the mineral lining the cavity is often a scintillating druse of tiny quartz crystals.

With a tiny mintage of just 500, this 1 troy ounce .999 fine silver coin features the patented "moving parts within a coin" technology, embedded within the silver coin is Quartz Crystal, visible through a transparent capsule.
