April 3, 2022 – WASHINGTON – The 2022 United States Mint (Mint) Proof Set (product code 22RG) will be available for purchase beginning April 7 at noon EDT. This year, the set includes the first five pieces of the American Women Quarters program, the four-year initiative to honor the contributions and achievements of American women to the nation.

Priced at $32, the set includes the following ten proof coins from the Mint’s facilities in San Francisco:

  • Five quarters of American women 2022 with reverse designs (tails) honoring Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren and Anna May Wong. The obverse (heads) of each coin features a portrait of George Washington, originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser to mark George Washington’s 200th birthday. It was a recommended design for the 1932 quarter, but then Treasury Secretary Mellon ultimately chose the familiar John Flannigan design. The inscriptions are “LIBERTY”, “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “2022”. The obverse design is common to all quarters issued in the series.
  • A Native American $1 coin with an inverted design that honors the contributions of Ely S. Parker of the Tonawanda Seneca, who is depicted in an army uniform, serving as military secretary to General Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War. During the surrender at Appomattox, Parker handed over the official surrender documents in his own hand. He is depicted with a quill pen, a book and a likeness of his signature, symbols of his experience as an expert communicator and his graceful calligraphy. The inscriptions “TONAWANDA SENECA” and “HA-SA-NO-AN-DA” recognize his tribe and his birth name. The additional inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “$1”. The obverse design retains the central figure Sacagawea carrying his infant son, Jean Baptiste. The inscriptions are “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST”. The year of minting, the mint mark and the inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are incused on the edges of the coins.
  • Half a Kennedy Dollar
  • A Roosevelt Penny
  • A nickel from Jefferson, and
  • A Lincoln penny

All pieces are encapsulated and enclosed in newly designed blue packaging with photographs of the five winners of the 2022 American Women’s Quarters Program and partial images of the remaining pieces. A certificate of authenticity is also included in the package.
