This just in!

The U.S. Mint has just announced some exciting news! Under the “American Women Quarters Program,” late Maya Angelou and trailblazing astronaut Dr. Sally Ride will be the first two women to be celebrated on the quarter. Circulation begins in 2022.

The “heads” side of the coins will feature a likeness of George Washington with the women on the “tails” side of the quarter.

The Mint will annually issue up to five different reverse designs over the four-year period in 2022, continuing through 2025.
