2009-P USA Statehood Quarter - Guam - Single

The Guam Quarter was released into circulation on May 26, 2009. This was the third release of the 2009 DC & US Territories Quarter Program.

The design features an outline of the island of Guam along with two symbols associated with the island. At left is a sailing vessel known as the "Flying Proa" for its great speed. At right is a Latte, a stone pillar used in ancient houses. The reverse was designed by David Westwood and sculpted by Jim Licaretz.

The inscriptions read "Guam," "Guahan I Tan" ManChamorro," (translated: Guam- Land of the Chamorro), "E Pluribus Unum," and the date. The second inscription refers to Chamorro, one of the official languages of Guam which holds an important place in Guam's identity as a link to their ancestors. Use of the language has experienced a renaissance in Guam and the Mariana Islands.

Another design proposed but not selected featured the Flying Proa sailing within the East Hagatna Bay with a coconut tree to the right and Two Lovers Point in the background. The selected design was chosen by the residents of Guam based on popular vote.

An official launch ceremony for the Guam Quarter was held on June 4, 2009 at Skinner Plaza in Hagatna, Guam. The ceremony was hosted by US Mint Director Edmund Moy and Guam Governor Felix P Camacho. After the ceremony children were given a free Guam Quarter and adults were allowed to exchange bills for new rolls of coins. Prior to the ceremony, a collector's coin forum was held.
