The coin was issued to mark the 100th anniversary of Illinois being admitted to the Union as the 21st State.

@commems, How are you managing to post 2 pictures side by side on the same line, Instead of one picture at a time vertically?
Do not put a carriage return between your [img][/img] tags.

So do this:

Not this:

The 1920 Maine Statehood Centennial half dollar depicts the Maine State Seal on its obverse.

From the web page of the Secretary of State, State of Maine:



The seal of the State shall be a shield, argent, charged with a pine tree (americana, quinis ex uno folliculo setis) with a moose (cervus alces), at the foot of it, recumbent; supporters: on dexter side, a husbandman, resting on a scythe; on sinister side, a seaman, resting on an anchor.

In the foreground, representing sea and land, and under the shield, shall be the name of the State in large Roman capitals, to wit:

MAINE.

The whole shall be surrounded by a crest, the North Star. The motto, in small Roman capitals, shall be in a label interposed between the shield and crest, viz.: -- DIRIGO.

The 1946 Iowa Statehood half dollar presents a portion of the Iowa State Seal on its obverse. It features the eagle and inscribed ribbon from the top area of the Seal as its primary obverse design; the depiction of the eagle is much improved on the coin IMO. Twenty-nine stars were added to the coin above the eagle to represent the fact that Iowa was the 29th state to join the Union.

The official description of the full Seal:

"the great seal of the state of Iowa [shall feature] the following device, surrounded by the words, 'The Great Seal of the State of Iowa' - a sheaf and field of standing wheat, with a sickle and other farming utensils, on the left side near the bottom; a lead furnace and pile of pig lead on the right side; the citizen soldier, with a plow in his rear, supporting the American flag and liberty cap with his right hand, and his gun with his left, in the center and near the bottom; the Mississippi River in the rear of the whole, with the steamer Iowa under way; an eagle near the upper edge, holding in his beak a scroll, with the following inscription upon it: Our liberties we prize, and our rights we will maintain."

Note: Emphasis added to highlight the wording that describes the section of the Seal used on the half dollar.

On its reverse, the 1921 Alabama Statehood Centennial half dollar presents a slightly modified version of the Great Seal of Alabama that was in use at the time of the coin's issue. The Seal had been adopted in 1868 and was replaced in 1939.

Here's the Seal as it looked in 1919 during the state's centennial:



From Act 133 of the 1868 General Assembly of Alabama:

That the governor be, and he is hereby authorized and directed, as soon as practicable after the passage of this act, to have prepared a seal, which shall be known as the "great seal of the State," and which Seal, shall be of the following character: The seal shall be circular and the diameter thereof two and a quarter (2-1/4) inches. Near the edge of the circle shall be the word " Alabama," and opposite this word at the same distance from the edge shall be the words, "Great Seal." In the centre of the seal there shall be a representation of an eagle and a shield, and upon such part of the seal as the governor may direct there shall be the words, "Here we rest."
