Authorized under Public Law 116-330, the series of 2022-2025 quarters will offer up to 20 reverse designs celebrating women who shaped American history.

“The contributions may come from a wide spectrum of accomplishments and fields, including but not limited to suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space, and arts,” the U.S. Mint announced in seeking ideas for the quarters.

The Mint unveiled 7 proposed designs for the first American Women quarter in preparation for their review before the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) and the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA).
