Washington — The 2022 United States Mint (Mint) Silver Proof Set will be available for purchase starting on June 23 at noon EDT. This year’s set includes the first five coins in the American Women Quarters Program, the four-year series that celebrates the accomplishments and contributions made by women to the development and history of America.
Priced at $105.00, the set includes the following 10 San Francisco-minted coins:
- Five American Women Quarters Program coins with reverse (tails) designs honoring Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren, and Anna May Wong. The obverse (heads) of each coin in this series depicts a portrait of George Washington, originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate design for the 1932 quarter, which honored the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2022.”
- One Native American $1 coin with a reverse design honoring the contributions of Ely S. Parker of the Tonawanda Seneca, who is depicted in his Army uniform, serving as military secretary to General Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War. During the surrender at Appomattox, Parker rendered formal surrender documents in his own hand. He is shown with a quill pen, book, and likeness of his signature—symbols of his experience as an expert communicator, and his graceful penmanship. The inscriptions “TONAWANDA SENECA” and “HA-SA-NO-AN-DA” recognize his tribe and birth name. Additional inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “$1.” The obverse design retains the central figure Sacagawea carrying her infant son, Jean Baptiste. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The year of minting, mint mark, and inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are incused on the edge of the coins.
- One silver Kennedy half dollar
- One silver Roosevelt dime
- One Jefferson nickel
- One Lincoln penny
The quarters, dime, and half dollar are all struck in 99.9 percent fine silver.
For 2022, the new image on the front of the carton features a traditional design in black with a textured background and a close-up of the eagle on the reverse of the half dollar. The images on the back of the carton include photographs of all five 2022 American Women Quarters Program honorees and partial coin images of the obverse of the Kennedy half dollar, Lincoln penny, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime, and Native American $1 Coin.
