American Samoa Quarter Release Date

The latest quarter in the District of Columbia and US Territories Quarters Program was released on July 27, 2009. This was the quarter featuring American Samoa.

The reverse design of the coin features important items for traditional Samoan events. The ava bowl is used to make a special drink for island chiefs and guests. The whisk and staff symbolize the rank of Samoan orator who delivers speeches during important gatherings. The background of the coin displays a coastline with a coconut tree.

American Samoa Quarter

The reverse design of the American Samoa Quarter was designed by Stephen Clark and sculpted by Charles Vickers.

The US Mint began selling bags and rolls of the new quarters on their website on the same day coins were released into circulation.

The mintage for the coins is expected to be low, in keeping with the trend of declining mintages for circulating coins. The final figures may be available as early as next month. This is definitely something to watch for!
