Found within the set are proof-quality coins of the five 2024-dated releases of the U.S. Mint’s American Women Quarters™ Program. Each coin was produced at the Mint’s facility in San Francisco. Proof coins are noted for their frosted designs and mirror-like backgrounds, which are created from polished blank planchets struck multiple times using special dies.

The quarters program is a four-year series from the U.S. Mint that began in 2022. It honors five new women annually for their important contributions to the history of the United States. The quarters in this year’s proof set honor the following individuals:

  • Reverend Dr. Pauli Murray – poet, writer, activist, lawyer, and Episcopal priest who is considered to be one of the most noted social justice advocates of the last century.
  • Honorable Patsy Takemoto Mink – proponent of gender and racial equality, affordable childcare, and bilingual education who championed the Title IX legislation in Congress which prohibited sex discrimination in any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
  • Dr. Mary Edwards Walker – Civil War era surgeon and women’s rights advocate. Walker became the first woman U.S. Army surgeon as a "Contract Acting Assistant Surgeon (civilian)." She was also awarded the Medal of Honor, the only woman ever to be so honored.
  • Celia Cruz – one of the most popular and award-winning Latin artists of the 20th century, Cruz became a cultural icon of her era who was given the nickname "Queen of Salsa."
  • Zitkala-Ša – also known as Gertrude Simmons Bonnin, was a writer, composer, educator, and political activist for Native American rights and citizenship in the early 20th century whose efforts led to the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, which granted American Indians US Citizenship while still maintaining their tribal standing and citizenship.

Images depicting the honored individuals appear on the reverse (tails side) of each new coin, along with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "QUARTER DOLLAR." The obverse (heads side) of each quarter share the Laura Gardin Fraser portrait of George Washington, with inscriptions reading "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2022."
