The place to be for coin collectors recently was Milwaukee, Wisconsin as Bank One celebrated the release of the state's new quarter by giving 29,600 of them away for free. The quarter is the latest of the nation's state keepsakes. The bank not only gave away the quarters to the first 400 customers in the state's 74 Bank One branches, it also awarded 74 people a 2004 United States Mint proof set, which included other commemorative coins such as a Lincoln penny, a Roosevelt dime, a Kennedy half-collar and the Golden Dollar featuring Sacagawea.
