The coin’s reverse (tails) features a depiction of Dr. Mary Edwards Walker holding her pocket surgical kit, with the Medal of Honor on her uniform, and surgeon’s pin at her collar.  After receiving the award, she continued to wear the Medal of Honor for the rest of her life.  The left side of the design showcases the details of the Medal of Honor.  The inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “25 CENTS,” “DR. MARY EDWARDS WALKER,” and “MEDAL OF HONOR 1865.”

United States Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill created and sculpted the reverse design.

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 “2024.”

Begun in 2022, and continuing through 2025, the Mint is issuing five new quarter dollar reverse designs each year.  The American Women Quarters Program is authorized by the Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act of 2020 (Public Law 116-330).
