Priced at $23.00, the set consists of the five 2023 American Women quarters with Proof finishes honoring Bessie Coleman — first African American and first Native American woman pilot, and first African American to earn an international pilot’s license; Edith Kanakaʻole — kumu hula, cultural, and environmental champion; Eleanor Roosevelt — first lady, author, civil liberties, and human rights hero; Jovita Idar — Mexican American activist and educator; and Maria Tallchief — America’s first major prima ballerina and first Native American ballerina.
