The problem of how to obtain quasi-classical states for quantum groups is examined. A measure of quantum indeterminacy is proposed, which involves expectation values of some natural quantum group operators. It is shown that within any finite-dimensional irreducible representation, the highest-weight vector and those unitarily related to it are the quasi-classical states.
