Queen Isabella on Columbian Exhibition quarter, Virginia Dare Roanoke half dollar, Eunice Shiver Special Olympics dollar, Dolly Madison silver dollar,


Seriously? These are commemorative. They never circulated. And if you actually read my post you know that I included the barely circulating dollar coins. From my post that you actually quoted:


Quote:
(Silver dollars and Clad dollars did not circulate widely)




Quote:
Helen Keller Alabama State Quarter.


Really stretching it here. A State Quarter that's includes a women, when these are exclusive to commemorate women. If you go that far you can say we had women on our US Money since Pocahontas was on the reverse of several bills but she wasn't the focus. Neither was Helen Keller the focus of the program. There were several women portrayed on the ATB Quarters (Marianna Islands, Massachusetts, New Jersey), again the focus was "America the Beautiful"

But nice try.

As to my reason for not wanting to initially collect these coins is that I am really not interested in clad coinage.


I have no interest in the women

Well that's your business but each one of the women featured are pioneers in the field they are represented. Maybe you should learn a little about each one and why there were selected

From the US Mint Site:

"The Maya Angelou Quarter is the first coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Maya Angelou was a celebrated writer, performer, and social activist. She rose to international prominence as an author after the publication of her groundbreaking autobiography "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." Angelou's published works of verse, non-fiction, and fiction include more than 30 bestselling titles.

Angelou's remarkable career encompasses dance, theater, journalism, and social activism. She appeared in Broadway and off-Broadway plays, including "Cabaret for Freedom," which she wrote with Godfrey Cambridge. At the request of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., she served as northern coordinator of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. In 1978, she was a National Book Award judge for biography and autobiography.

Angelou read "On the Pulse of Morning" at the 1992 inauguration of President Clinton. Angelou's reading marked the first time an African American woman wrote and presented a poem at a presidential inauguration. She was also only the second poet in history to do so, following Robert Frost, who recited a poem at President Kennedy's inauguration in 1961.

Angelou received more than 30 honorary degrees and was inducted into the Wake Forest University Hall of Fame for Writers. In 2010, President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was also the 2013 recipient of the Literarian Award, an honorary National Book Award for contributions to the literary community."


"The Dr. Sally Ride Quarter is the second coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Dr. Sally Ride was a physicist, astronaut, educator, and the first American woman to soar into space.

When she blasted off aboard Space Shuttle Challenger on June 18, 1983, Ride became the first American woman - and, at 32, the youngest American - in space. During the six days of mission STS-7, she deployed and retrieved a satellite with the shuttle's robotic arm. Her second shuttle flight, STS-41G, made history as the first space mission with two female crew members.

After her historic spaceflight, Ride saw that her example was a powerful tool for inspiring young people, especially girls, to pursue careers in science. She teamed up with Tam O'Shaughnessy to write six science books for young people. "The Third Planet: Exploring the Earth from Space," won the American Institute of Physics' Children's Science Writing Award in 1995.

To narrow the gender gap in science and engineering careers, Ride and O'Shaughnessy started an education company to inspire young people, especially girls, in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). In 2001, they joined like-minded friends with expertise in physics, administration, and technology to found Sally Ride Science. One of Ride's goals in starting the Sally Ride Science organization was to make sure girls and boys of all backgrounds had access to role models who looked like them.

Ride received many honors during her life, including induction into the Astronaut Hall of Fame, National Women's Hall of Fame, and Aviation Hall of Fame."


"The Wilma Mankiller Quarter is the third coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Wilma Mankiller was the first woman elected principal chief of the Cherokee Nation and an activist for Native American and women's rights.

She was born in the Cherokee Nation in 1945. After drought devastated her family's land in the 1950s, her family was moved to a housing project in California, where the adolescent Mankiller experienced culture shock, exacerbated by poverty and racism.

After Mankiller returned to the Cherokee Nation in 1977, she founded the Community Development Department for the Cherokee Nation. She led the creation of community water systems and rehabilitation of houses during the administration of Principal Chief Ross Swimmer. In 1983, Swimmer named Mankiller his running mate in his bid for re-election. When they won, Mankiller became the first woman elected deputy chief of the Cherokee Nation. After Swimmer left office to lead the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, she became principal chief.

Mankiller was elected chief in 1987, and four years later, re-elected in a landslide. She tripled her tribe's enrollment, doubled employment, and built new housing, health centers, and children's programs in northeast Oklahoma. Under her leadership, infant mortality declined and educational levels rose. Her leadership on social and financial issues made her tribe a national role model. After leaving office in 1995, she remained a strong voice worldwide for social justice, native people, and women.

Mankiller received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1998, the highest honor given to civilians in the United States. She was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1993."

"The Nina Otero-Warren Quarter is the fourth coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Nina Otero-Warren was a leader in New Mexico's suffrage movement and the first female superintendent of Santa Fe public schools.

Otero-Warren emphasized the necessity of using the Spanish language in the suffrage fight in order to reach Hispanic women. She also spearheaded the lobbying effort to ratify the 19th Amendment in New Mexico.

Otero-Warren strove to improve education for all New Mexicans, working especially to advance bicultural education and to preserve cultural practices among the state's Hispanic and Native American communities."

"The Anna May Wong Quarter is the fifth coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Anna May Wong was the first Chinese American film star in Hollywood. She left a legacy for women in the film industry.

Wong appeared in more than 60 movies throughout her career. In addition to her roles in silent films, television, and stage, she landed a role in one of the first movies made in Technicolor. She achieved international success despite racism and discrimination."

The public law that created them, the Collectible Circulating Coin Redesign Act, provided for 4 years of women on the quarters, and then four years of children playing games on quarters along with disabled people playing games on the half dollar.

Sadly its still a thing in the US to portray dead men on our coins and currency.

That is another thing - the US can only portray DEAD people.

I'm still waiting to Jimmy Carter to die so I can back fill the holes in my president dollar album.

Not true, we have had living people before.

I asked my wife her thoughts on the Women's quarters. She said "I don't care, I prefer the paper money with Jackson, Grant and Franklin. In fact, give me some..."
