On the reverse side of the coin is the representation of the first homestead claimed in southeastern Nebraska as part of the Homestead Act. The coin’s face includes a log cabin in the background, water well in the foreground, and corn stalks surrounding the image. The obverse side features the iconic left-profile portrait of President George Washington, as used on the US quarter.
