Sally Ride coin designs recommended for 2022 American Women quarter

4 min read

Astronaut Sally Ride will be depicted on a U.S. coin looking out a spacecraft window at Earth, if the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury agrees with the recommendations made by two advisory panels for the design of quarter dollar to be issued in 2022.

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) met virtually Tuesday (April 20) to review, in part, the United States Mint’s concepts for the coin honoring the first American woman in space as part of the new American Women Quarters program starting next year. The CCAC meeting followed a similar review by the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts held on April 15.
