Description
 
In December 1997, America's most adventurous coin program became a reality when President Clinton signed legislation authorizing the U.S. Mint to issue the innovative 50 State Quarters collection. Starting in January 1999, each of the 50 states in the Union will be honored on a unique Quarter Dollar commemorative coin. Five states were featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. On the front, otherwise known as the obverse, the mintmarks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait. The small "S" indicates San Francisco Mint.
The 2009 American Samoa Quarter is the fourth coin in the United States Territories Quarter Series. American Samoa is a territory of the United States located in the South Pacific Ocean. The main island is Tutuila, with the Manu'a Islands, Rose Atoll, and Swains Island. American Samoa is part of the Samoan Islands chain, located west of the Cook Islands. The 2000 population recorded was 57,291. People born in American Samoa, are American nationals, but are not American citizens unless one of their parents is a US citizen. The quarter reverse design depicts the Ava bowl ("tanoa"), a whisk and staff. Also, a coconut tree on the shore; and the inscriptions, "AMERICAN SAMOA and SAMOA MUAMUA LE ATUA," which means "Samoa, God is First."


Each coin is encapsulated - please keep the coins in their protective coin holder to maintain their condition.
