22ws_a

After a quick sell-out of the 2022 American Women quarters proof set, as of March 29 collectors have another chance to snag a set. This time it’s a silver proof set that includes the five 2022 American Women quarters in 99.9 fine silver. The quarters honor:

Maya Angelou: celebrated author, performer and social activist

Dr. Sally Ride: physicist and first American woman in space

Wilma Mankiller: first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation

Nina Otero-Warren: a leader in New Mexico’s suffrage movement

Anna May Wong: first Chinese-American film star in Hollywood

This set is the first annual release in the four-year series of this new program celebrating the accomplishments and contributions made by women to the development and history of the U.S.

Beginning in 2022, and continuing through 2025, the Mint will issue five new quarters each year featuring reverse designs honoring prominent American women.

Each coin in this series features a common obverse design depicting a portrait of George Washington. This design was originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate entry for the 1932 quarter, which honored the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth.

The American Women Quarters reverse (tails) designs honor a diverse group of notable American women who made significant contributions in a variety of fields, including suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space and the arts.

All coins in the set are minted at the San Francisco facility. Cost is $73 per set. There are no mintage or order limits.
