All those designs seem way too busy for a quarter-dollar coin


Agreed – i assume there will be 2 quarter designs next year – this one and the last of the ATB series. Any other series o; the horizon?


I don’t know, but I hope not. I think I’ve had my fill of circulating commemoratives making a return to generational design welcome (even though it’s still all dead Presidents in the end)
