The state is having a bicentennial coin contest. People are encouraged to submit a design for the coin to commemorate the state's 200th birthday. State Treasurer Michael Frerichs says it should capture the beauty of the sate and its history. The contest runs through May 1. If you want to submit a design, CLICK HERE.
