2009 "d" northern mariana islands quarter
Northern Mariana Islands
This uncirculated quarter (BU) was released in 2009 to commemorate the incorporation of American Virgin islands in the United States in 1947, becoming a United States territory. The coin reverse design represents the wealth of the islands in its natural resources of land, air and sea. Near the shore stands a large limestone latte, the supporting column of ancient indigenous Chamorro structures. A canoe of the indigenous Carolinians represents the people?s seafaring skills across vast distances. Two white fairy tern birds fly in characteristic synchrony overhead. A Carolinian mwar (head lei) composed of plumeria, langilang (Ylang Ylang), angagha (peacock flower) and teibwo (Pacific Basil) borders the bottom of the design near the inscription, NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. The mwar is symbolic of the virtues of honor and respect.
This coin is part of the DC and US Territories serie which conclude the 50 states quarters serie.
Coins with the "P" mint mark were minted in Philadelphia and coins with "D" mint mark were minted in Denver.
