commonwealth-of-puerto-rico-quarterThe Unit­ed States Mint on Thurs­day April 2, intro­duced the 2009 Puer­to Rico quar­ter, which is the sec­ond of six com­mem­o­ra­tive quar­ters issued in the 2009 Dis­trict of Colum­bia and U.S. Ter­ri­to­ries Quar­ters Program.The quar­ter-dol­lar reverse or tails side was designed by US Mint Sculp­tor-Engraver Joseph Men­na. It depicts a sen­try box in Old San Juan over­look­ing the sea and Puer­to Rico’s offi­cial flower, the hibis­cus. The reverse also includes the inscrip­tions Isla del Encan­to (Island of Enchant­ment), mak­ing it the first U.S. coin to cir­cu­late with a phrase in Span­ish. MORE INFO
