The United States Mint will release the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico commemorative quarter into circulation on March 30. It is the second coin in the 2009 District of Columbia & U.S. Territories Quarters Program.
The coin's reverse (tails side) design features a sentry box in Old San Juan overlooking the sea with a hibiscus, Puerto Rico's official flower. The design, by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna, includes the inscription Isla del Encanto (Island of Enchantment).
