The 2022 United States Mint Proof Set features 10 proof coins encased in two clear plastic lenses in a beautifully designed package. The 2022 Proof Set includes:

All five 2022 American Women Quarters packaged in their own protective lens to showcase and maintain their exceptional proof finish.

These coins are the first five released in the new four-year series celebrating the accomplishments and contributions made by women to the development and history of the U.S. Each coin in this series features a common obverse (heads) design depicting a portrait of George Washington. This design was originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate entry for the 1932 quarter, which honoured the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. The inscriptions are “LIBERTY”, “IN GOD WE TRUST”, and “2022”.

The American Women Quarters reverse (tails) designs honour diverse and notable American women who made significant contributions in a variety of fields, including suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space, and the arts. The women honoured are from ethnically, racially, and geographically diverse backgrounds.

The 2022 reverse designs of these coins honour these prominent women:

The silhouette of the bird depicts a purple martin, a songbird common to her birthplace. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “MAYA ANGELOU”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM”, and “QUARTER DOLLAR”.

Dr. Sally Ride
The design depicts Dr. Sally Ride next to a window on the space shuttle, inspired by her quote, “But when I wasn’t working, I was usually at a window looking down at Earth”. The inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is intentionally positioned over the Earth next to America, indicating that out of all women in the U.S., she was the first in space.
