It was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Designer Emily Damstra and sculpted by Medallic Artist Michael Gaudioso.

The set also includes five of the coins from the American Women Quarters™ Program, a four-year series celebrating and honoring the accomplishments and contributions made by prominent American women. (This is the second year of the program).
Each coin in this series features a common obverse (heads) design depicting a portrait of George Washington. This design was originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate entry for the 1932 quarter, which honored the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth. The inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2023.”
The American Women Quarters reverse (tails) designs honor a diverse group of notable American women who made significant contributions in a variety of fields, including suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space, and the arts. The women honored are from ethnically, racially, and geographically diverse backgrounds.
The 2023 reverses (tails) of the quarters honor the following American Women:
