Quarters honoring Ameerican womenThe designs will be on the tails of the coins; George Washington will still be featured on the head side. They were created by the United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program designers and sculpted by United States Mint medallic artists.

Washington's likeness will be different than on other quarters. His side of the 2022 quarters was created by early 20th-century sculptor Laura Gardin Fraser, whose design of a portrait of Washington was initially considered for a 1932 coin celebrating his 200th birthday.

Each design is inspired by the lives and work of the women celebrated. Ride's coin depicts her next to a window on the space shuttle. The U.S. Mint said it is inspired by her quote, "But when I wasn’t working, I was usually at a window looking down at Earth.”

Mankiller, who was an activist for native women's rights, is shown wrapped in a traditional shawl with the Cherokee Nation seven-pointed star. "Cherokee Nation" is written in Cherokee syllabary.
