U.S. Mint Reveals Design For New Maya Angelou Quarter
Iconic poet and author Maya Angelou and astronaut Sally Ride will be memorialized on a new set of quarters scheduled for circulation next January. The two innovative women will lead the initial rollout and appear on a series of 25-cent pieces that will be released over the next four years by the U.S. Mint. Angelou and Ride will be engrained on the reverse, or tails side of the coins, and will be honored as part of the American Women Quarters Program. A new design of George Washington will be added to the heads side as well.
Are you excited to Maya Angelou on the new set of quarters like we are?
