Up the date of adhesion to The Union.
This territory currently has more than 15,000 lakes and water courses, which add up to a total of 90,000 miles of fresh water spread throughout the State. To get an idea of ​​its magnitude, it has more square kilometers of water surface than the States of California, Hawaii and Florida together.
The mighty Mississippi River is born here, at Lake Itasca, and is joined by tributaries as it runs south.
The reverse of the coin wants to highlight the beautiful natural landscapes of the State, which is why it shows a row of Norwegian pines surrounding the lake.

 

In the foreground is a Loon, a bird adopted as official by Minnesota, in which it inhabits regularly due to the protections enjoyed by its lakes and rivers.
Minnesota is also known for its whitewater canoeing and protected whitewater canoeing routes.

 

It currently has more than 1,500 miles of canoeing trails established, plus 2,200 campsites set up for canoeing, all thanks to an act of the US Congress in 1978.
