As a part of the U.S. Mint’s four-year series of American Women quarter dollars, a total of five unique 2022-dated coins will be issued by year’s end with designs honoring Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren and Anna May Wong.

"The fourth coin in our American Women Quarters™ Program honors Nina Otero-Warren, a courageous advocate for women, children, and Hispanic and Native American communities," said U.S. Mint Director Ventris C. Gibson. "This quarter is designed to reflect the breadth and depth of accomplishments by Nina Otero-Warren who overcame challenges and obstacles she faced during her lifetime."

Created by Chris Costello and sculpted by Craig Campbell, Nina Otero-Warren quarter reverses (tails sides) depict her on the left, flanked by three individual Yucca flowers — New Mexico’s state flower. 

Obverses (heads side) of the series of quarters share a depiction of George Washington that was sculpted 90 years ago by Laura Gardin Fraser to mark Washington’s 200th birthday.

Quarters for circulation are struck at U.S. Mint production facilities in Philadelphia and Denver.

I’ll try to get a roll of these from my bank next week. We’ll see if I’m successful. The last issue went out into circulation quickly but I haven’t seen them yet.


You’d think there’d be a wider distribution for these coins. My bank told me, they had the last issue when they first came out and then disbursed them or mixed them in with other coins. I still haven’t seen them. I think a lot are disappearing into people’s collections, as with the Lincoln bicentennial cents.


No, they’re not. I only found two Wilma Mankiller quarters in the latest roll I received from my bank, along with two Maya Angelou quarters and no Sally Ride quarters. I’m going to try to get a roll of new quarters today and possibly they’ll be the Nina Otero-Warren quarters. It may be too early yet. I was VERY fortunate to find two W 2019 quarters in a roll a couple of years ago. I’m still looking for more, you can never tell. The W’s are out there (to requote the X Files).


What’s with those nasty, through-the-wringer ones? They don’t look authentic to me, like they’re from China. I return them to my bank for an exchange and tell the teller I don’t want those ones, they won’t work in the washing machines at my laundry mat. They exchange them without question.

You made me laugh, Kaiser Wilhelm!


Bring out the mummies!


Don’t anger the mummy.


Even when I’m not here your a babbling MORON, attention seeking charlatan and pathetic Turd
CHARLATAN :one making usually showy pretenses to knowledge or ability : A TRUE FRAUD AND FAKE a charlatan is willing to do and say virtually anything to remain in the spotlight
You have taken every cheap shot possible at anyone who contributes, plays well and shares with other’s because you crave the spotlight – your despicable

You better run while you still have something to cling to. You are really bad at insults, I do not see how you managed to terrorize people here for so long. Now Major D shows he is better than you at memes. POORSENZA, all you have left is NONSENZACAL rage.


I don’t have room for everything, uncirculated, circulation grad uncirculated, circulation uncirculated and proof. I’m thinking it’s just too much. I’ll only buy the uncirculated and proof if there’s an issue that interests me. This year it’s Ely Parker. I didn’t buy the circulation grade uncirculated Native American Dollars this year because a roll of each is too much for me. I’m happy. Now to find some more W ATB quarters. 🙂


I received my first Wilma Mankiller quarters on Saturday (August 13). The Nina Otero-Warren quarters will be received by banks today (August 15). I hope I can get a new roll.
