I cant wait to see who else is featured on the quarters that are dropping until 2025. The Quarter with Maya Angelou was released yesterday, I haven’t come across one yet but I think its one that I wont spend.

Meanwhile we are still waiting for Harriet Tubman to be on the $20 dollar bill. Now that will be history, lets change the face of this country, literally!

Who do you think should be featured on a Quarter?
