birth. The inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2022.”
The American Women Quarters reverse (tails) designs honor diverse and
notable American women who made significant contributions in a variety
of fields, including suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government,
humanities, science, space, and the arts. The women honored are from
ethnically, racially, and geographically diverse backgrounds.
