2024 Patsy Takemoto Mink Quarter Enters Circulation on March 25


On Monday, March 25, the United States Mint will begin shipping 2024 Patsy Takemoto Mink quarters to Federal Reserve Banks and their coin terminals for distribution into circulation. This coin represents the second of five distinct quarter designs for this year and the twelfth in total from the U.S. Mint’s American Women Quarters™ Program.

At the onset of the four-year series in 2022, the individuals celebrated Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren, and Anna May Wong. Quarters for 2023 extended the celebration of accomplishments and contributions made by American women by honoring Bessie Coleman, Edith Kanakaʻole, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jovita Idar and Maria Tallchief. Quarters for 2024 recognize Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray, Patsy Takemoto Mink, Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, Celia Cruz, and Zitkala-Ša.

This latest quarter "celebrates the incredible life and legacy of the Honorable Patsy Takemoto Mink," said Mint Director Ventris C. Gibson. "As the first Asian American woman to serve in Congress, she fought bravely for gender and racial equality, affordable childcare, bilingual education, environmental protection, and, most notably, Title IX."

The reverse (tails side) of the quarter depicts the Honorable Patsy Takemoto Mink holding her landmark "TITLE IX" legislation. In the background, a view of the U.S. Capitol Building prominently features the south wing, home to the U.S. House of Representatives, where Mink served in Congress. The lei she wears represents her home state of Hawaii. The image was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program Artist Beth Zaiken and sculpted by U.S. Mint Medallic Artist John P. McGraw.

"Patsy Takemoto Mink was an amazing Congresswoman and a true pioneer who worked tirelessly to champion women’s rights," said McGraw. "Title IX, her groundbreaking legislation, gave all women equal footing in the workplace and sports."

The obverses (heads side) of quarters within the program feature a portrayal of George Washington. This portrait, sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser over 90 years ago, commemorated Washington’s 200th birthday.

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

On Thursday, March 28, the U.S. Mint will release circulating quality Patsy Takemoto Mink quarters to the public through their website at https://catalog.usmint.gov. These quarters will be available in three different packaging options:

  • a set of two rolls for $40,
  • a set of three rolls for $60, and
  • 100-coin bags at $45 apiece.

Notably, within the trio of rolls, one of them contains quarters produced at the San Francisco Mint, which brings a distinct level of rarity since these quarters will not be found in circulation like the ones produced in Philadelphia and Denver.

U.S. Mint subscriptions for 2024 quarters product are available now. Subscribers to Mint products automatically receive them when they are released.

The final coins from the program, quarters for 2025, will honor Ida B. Wells, Juliette Gordon Low, Dr. Vera Rubin, Stacey Park Milbern, and Althea Gibson.

I’ve never heard of her, so I learn something new every day! I can appreciate her efforts..As Ventris said– “As the first Asian American woman to serve in Congress, she fought bravely for gender and racial equality, affordable childcare, bilingual education, environmental protection, and, most notably, Title IX.” And everything has worked out thankfully. All Genders and all Races are now equal-Great, now that we’re all equal, no more arguing about any inequalities-they no longer exist in my mind. So Mahalo to you Ms.Mink!..The Media? Yeah they might disagree with me.. With that being said-I will not be buying these by… Read more »

Nice Score Rick!



Those 3-roll PDS sets have sure fallen by the wayside! I don’t think, the large increase in mintage/product limit for 2023 and 2024 was a good idea, at least from a collector and secondary market standpoint. The AWQ’s appear to be waning, from a sales and “following” standpoint IMO. US Mint pricing for the different products that contain the AWQ’s, hasn’t helped out or done the program any favors either.

I’m just thankful that this is only a 20 coin series. It makes for a higher likelihood that people might put sets together.

Major D

Agree with you, data dave. But given that there’s 5 types for each quarter (P, D, Unc S, Proof S, and Silver Proof S) means actually 100 coins, unless there are some recognized variations that show up to push it higher. However, even if just collecting the 20 coins I think it makes a great companion to the Susan B. Anthony dollar series.


It’s 40 coins, 20 from Philadelphia and 20 from Denver. Then add 20 from San Francisco, if you’re interested. Then 20 copronickel proofs and 20 silver proofs for a total of 100 coins from the three mints and composition and quality varieties. Reminds me more of the Eisenhower dollars.

Major D

Yes, 20 different designs x 5 types = 100 coins. Many of the States and ATB quarter books (meant for young and/or new collectors) did not distinguish between the different mint marks and contained just 50 slots for the 50 state quarter designs (not including the territories).

Major D

So, I imagine there will be Young Collector albums for 20 AWQ coins- highlighting just the designs. Good enough, and just the right size, to get someone interested in collecting from the wild (as I did with Lincoln cents back in the day).

Major D

Ha! You can put me in the “Just Poor” category. I agree with you CaliSkier about the mintages for the AWQ rolls being too high. I guess like everything, only time will tell. Speaking of AWQ, I have an odd-looking obverse on one of the 2023 proofs I received from the Mint in a set. It has a swiggly mark just below and to the right of the nose that’s shaped a mirrored “S” and reads like a “2”. It’s about the size of the actual “S” mint mark, but much fainter and thinner. My first thought was it’s a… Read more »


Ponder Major D. My 2 guesses are a possible “Reed mark”
from another coin OR possibly a strike through error? Yes, in theory a proof coin should be “sans” Reed marks from other coins, however the US Mint QC/QA leaves a bit to be desired IMO. PS I have a post about our GateWest coins,
posted to this thread, hung up in moderation. Trying to be patient and wait for “approval”.

Major D,

Can you get us a photo?

Major D

Here it is. It’s an Eleanor Roosevelt.


It looks like a shaving/thread, seen it here & there on Proofs…
My SSB coin seen(I hope you can see/zoom)below, I have it circled–No it’s no fuzz or hair, it’s a ‘metal hair’ stuck there. Yours wont blow off, but it may if you try?.
My $.02 contribution…

Foreign Object Debris (FOD)? Burrs? Embedded Metal? Contamination? Dirty process? Interesting. Wait and see if anyone else reports the same thing. Thanks for the picture.


I’m not experienced enough with errors Major D, however now that I’ve seen your picture, my guess is it’s a “strike through”? Probably not worth the cost of grading, more than likely. Also, you bring up another interesting topic. Using canned air, to clean debris or fibers(blue) from coins. Many have used, some say, “not a problem” others say, “no way”. After having digested many collectors thoughts on the topic, I’m in favor of using a “nasal bulb syringe”. I’m just not brave enough to try using gander air, due to propellant and possible, added bitter agent(?). Of course, as… Read more »

Major D

CaliSkier, thanks for the advice. I figured canned air with a straw (like you would use on a computer) was better than blowing on it or touching it with anything. I was sure not to have any liquid or condensation expelled from the can, holding it far enough from the coin to just have air. It’s fairly common unfortunately to have threads and debris inside the lens of proof coins from the Mint. Sometimes it’s hard to know what you’re looking at, is it on the coin or on the plastic?

Looks like a “Bra-less Type 1 Variety” to me. Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me again. There could be some push back down the road for a change. Almost as good as the 1916 Type 1 Standing Liberty Quarter. Yet, nothing could possibly beat the proof Mexican Libertad.

Type 1

Artistic realism at its finest. However, she was a power house intellectual, served 28 years in the Congress, and considered very attractive in her younger days. The people of Hawaii loved her.

Aloha Patsy!


Call me blind I don’t see it. It’s like those Wisconsin state quarters, I’ve never seen the extra leaf.

I’m on a 32″ Samsung. Looks pretty obvious to me. We’ll see how they strike up. I will try to buy an “S” mint roll on eBay today.


Oh it’s there, and done intentionally IMO. It’s just not as obvious as this one below-click on it…

Now E1, bad boy–Go to your corner! .·´¯(>▂<)´¯·.



I actually find the Mexican Libertad to be one of the most beautiful coins out there…

E 1


It is. It is amazing. With all of the nation’s previous coat of arms on the reverse. The Uno Onza Proof Libertad is one of my favorites too. Artistic Realism.


E 1

Oooh, 70. That’s a toughie. Are you sure you are a rookie?

E 1

Good minds think alike.

E 1

The greatest gift to receive in life is beauty. Only those who have taste can receive it.



I’m a rookie, no doubt. But a quick & enthusiastic learner! I’ve been collect’ing’ for several years. But a collec’tor’ for only a couple of years-if that makes sense? Back to the Libertads, beautiful coins. I have 10 MS coins, similar to your graded beauty. However mine were bullion bargains from a dealer like APMEX years ago, still great coins… That really nice PCGS Reverse Proof Libertad is not mine, but I wish it were! I was looking for something for Antonio to ‘see’ what you were trying to ‘point’ out lol’.. By the way? You may be on to… Read more »


Quit the AWQ series after initial year. They bumped the mintages way too much for me. Still cherry-picking newbies from McDs and Target change machines. No S mints, though.
Gatewest order arrived today and WOWZER!!! Really nice RP coins. The 2017 five cent is REALLY cool. There is no certificate of authenticity with the set, so no way to check weight and the coins are not identified with weight or purity (most likely due to them being duplicates of previously issues). Regardless, I am very happy with them and thank Cali for the heads up.

Major D

Dave, that’s great to hear about your Gatewest order. Mine is in the hopper- thanks to CaliSkier. As for the coin specs (weight, size, purity), you can find them on the RCM archive pages that CaliSkier provided links to (just scroll down and hit the down arrow by each coin denomination): https://www.mint.ca/en-us/shopping/archives/2017/1-oz-pure-silver-3-coin-set-royal-canadian-mint-coin-lore-the-forgotten-1927-designs-mintage-pack-160230


First of all, you are welcome and I’m glad you’re happy with your purchase DaveSWFL. You said: “Really nice RP coins. The 2017 five cent is REALLY cool.” Ironically, the post I attempted to leave here, earlier today, I’d attached that exact coins picture, which caused it to go into “waiting for approval”/moderation mode. I hadn’t saved the text in notes and I’m patiently waiting to see if it gets released by Coin News. Gist of the post was tracking via Canada Post and the USPS. Then how much I was looking forward to getting my coins and them being… Read more »


Cali, Interestingly enough, as you may have noticed, my post on this article suddenly showed up today as the first one up top..How so? After several posts showed up before mine did today? Well I posted first indeed yesterday midday, but my attachments for E1 held things up in the “wait for approval dept.” IMO.. It took a whole day to approve my post with links?..But on other articles(even this one) my link went right through(example PCGS Libertad)..So my guess is that it’s hit or miss with a post that includes a link… I would expect to see your post… Read more »
