Authorized under Public Law 116-330, the series of 2022-2025 quarters will showcase up to 20 reverse (tails side) 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 5 proposed designs for the second 2022-dated American Women quarter ahead of their review before the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) and the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA).

2022-2025 American Women quarter obverses (heads side) will carry a common design featuring a likeness of George Washington that is distinguished from past quarter programs. The Mint already published candidates for this obverse design as well as candidates for the first American Women quarter honoring Maya Angelou.

SR-01 please.

Ditto here. 02 and 03 are IMHO a bit cartoonish, and 04 and 05 lack her image.

However I do like seeing the denomination expressed numerically on 02 and 03.

Clockwork Squirrel

True that. Ya gotta wonder what the designers were (or weren’t) thinking.

Steven Ricks

Chiming in to agree that designs without her image are pointless, and also that SR-01 is the best design.

Waist of Metal

wah

Clockwork Squirrel

My waist isn’t metal. It’s skin, muscle, and a bit too much adipose.

02-03 looks like she’s smoking a bong to celebrate 420 on 4/20

They remind me of the movie Barberella

I think the mint should do a quarter on Harriet Tubman

No more heads or tails coin flips with SR-01. This design would create the new magicians dream coin from the US Mint.

That’s the best they could come up with.?It’s going on a united states coin.really what’s the choices for artist?

I know the feeling. Been marooned in this bizzaro slice of the multiverse since 2016. I believe it was early November. I think there were burn-throughs before, but I didn’t want accept them. My home universe already had a Caligula, but that was nearly 2,000 years ago.

Interesting edit. The reasons for which I suspect are chilling. PCSD: Post Caligula Shame Disorder. Funny that Caligula coins seem to command a premium over their Imperial-era counterparts, except maybe for Julius. Of course, none compare to the Brutus Ides coin. Imagine a John Wilkes Booth or Liddy/Cruz/Shaw/Nixon/Ruby/Dulles/Hoover series…with messy hair JFK on the obverse… Funny little critters are we.

02 – 05 must be jokes. It has to be 01!
