Florida, where design goes to die

Ken Norton has some choice things to say about the quality of design on recent US coinage, and in particular the horror that is Florida's new quarter.

Florida quarter Florida quarter -- improved

On the left is the official version, combining three competing views of Florida's identity (succinctly restated by Norton): "Nothing Says Success like the Space Shuttle," "Remember Our 16th Century Spanish Invaders" and "Florida - it's the Warm Place we go to Die." On the right is his improved version.

What I want to know is, are there any states which have done a better job?
