In the quarter, an image of Maya Angelou was featured, with her arms lifted up sideways in a grand way. Coupled with her image, a bird in flight and a rising sun were also featured behind her, with a portrait of George Washington on the head of the quarter side.

A statement released by Janet Yellen, US treasury secretary goes thus:

“Each time we redesign our currency, we have the chance to say something about our country – what we value, and how we’ve progressed as a society. I’m very proud that these coins celebrate the contributions of some of America’s most remarkable women, including Maya Angelou.” 


This is a moment of Pride!
