For some reason the dots and the way quarter dollar is written reminds me of an arcade token.

Maybe a little but doesn't match many of the tokens I have ever seen...

Perhaps you are just wanting to relive your youth...

...gotta buy some of those deep cameos...probably MS-72s...

My beef with this series is that they do not tell us...or the general public...what the female was famous for!!!!

Also I'm mad at the mint because I can't just buy rolls of "S" MM quarters...bundled with P-D-S.

Just my opinion I believe they rushed the designs of these quarters. Throughout all the years of numismatics and they maybe had pressure from some one and rushed the designs. Looking at all the quarters there are no real details on them. I will stick with defiantly rushed. If you are going to do something, do not rush because your name is going on it. The coin says nothing. You are right. I have seen better video tokens which I collect.

@SaturnD51, These candidate designs were developed for the 2022 American Women Quarters Program - Anna May Wong in accordance with the Act that authorized, then chose the winner from those.https://www.usmint.gov/news/ccac-me...nna-may-wong

The design may have a slight inspiration from the look of a few arcade tokens like this one, but not sure if there was some specific one the op thought of.

The alternate designs for the Anna May Wong quarter are much better!

Not to my eyes, but everyone has their own perspective!

Which of our circulation coins does? Lincoln Cent? No. Jefferson nickel? No. Roosevelt Dime? No. etc. etc.

We know who the folks on these coins are and what they are famous for because we either learned about them in school or through other means. Same holds true for the new quarters - folks will need to spend a few minutes learning about the subject. Hopefully, they will then share what they've learned with others and the knowledge will spread.

I'll kick things off:

Per the US Mint:

Anna May Wong was the first Chinese American film star in Hollywood.

Wong was born January 3, 1905, in Los Angeles. Her birth name was Wong Liu Tsong, and her family gave her the English name Anna May. She was cast in her first role as an extra in the film "The Red Lantern" (1919) at 14 and continued to land small roles as extras until her first leading role in "The Toll of the Sea" (1922).

Her career spanned motion pictures, television, and theater. She appeared in more than 60 movies, including silent films and one of the first movies made in Technicolor. Wong also became the first Asian American lead actor in a U.S. television show for her role in "The Gallery of Madame Liu-Tsong" (1951).

After facing constant discrimination in Hollywood, Wong traveled to Europe and worked in English, German, and French films. She also appeared in productions on the London and New York stages.

Wong was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960. She died on February 3, 1961. She is remembered as an international film star, fashion icon, television trailblazer, and a champion for greater representation of Asian Americans in film. She continues to inspire actors and filmmakers today.

I think on one of the quarters they did mention what the woman was famous for... but only in Spanish.

TBH as far as the reverse is concerned the Anna May Wong quarter is probably the best of the series so far, though as I've only seen pics, not actual coins, I'm not sure I could meaningfully compare.

I think we have enough words on the coins already, no need for even more useless space eating! I'm thoroughly enjoying the series so far, the 2023 designs look much nicer to me. I hope that trend continues.

This reverse was created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Emily Damstra as well as she created the Maya Angelou reverse, perhaps she was channeling her inner love for arcade machines if thats what you see.. If you ever see her or speak to her, you can ask.
