The 2023 United States Mint Silver Proof Set became available for purchase on August 22 at noon EDT. The set includes the second annual release of the four-year series of five coins in the American Women Quarters Program. The program celebrates the accomplishments and contributions made by women who have shaped our Nation’s history and helped pave the way for generations who followed. The American Women Quarters reverse designs honor a diverse group of 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 honored are from ethnically, racially, and geographically diverse backgrounds.
Priced at $130.00 USD, the set includes the following 10 San Francisco-minted coins:
- Five 2023 American Women Quarters with reverse designs honoring Bessie Coleman, Edith Kanakaʻole, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jovita Idár, and Maria Tallchief. The obverse of each coin in this series depicts a portrait of George Washington, originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate design for the 1932 quarter, which honored the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. Inscriptions for the coin’s obverse are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2023.”
- One Native American $1 Coin with a reverse design that features Maria Tallchief in balletic pose. In addition to Tallchief, four other American Indian ballerinas from Oklahoma who achieved international recognition in the 20th century are depicted, including Yvonne Chouteau, Rosella Hightower, Moscelyne Larkin, and her younger sister Marjorie Tallchief. Celebrated as the “Five Moons,” their legacy of achievement and inclusion continues to influence ballet today. A nod to the “Five Moons” is presented in the lunar motif, while the four ballerinas in the background are symbolic of both Tallchief’s American Indian ballerina contemporaries and the generations of dancers they inspired. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “MARIA TALLCHIEF,” “$1,” and “AMERICAN INDIANS IN BALLET.” The obverse design continues to feature the central figure “Sacagawea” carrying her infant son, Jean Baptiste. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The year of minting, mint mark, and inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are incused on the edge of the coins.
