The stunning silver & black design of the
US Mint Commemorative NMI quarter
sits atop ocean blue and Marianas trench.
“E Pluribus Unum!”(out of many, one.)
The coin design features a prehistoric Chamorro
Latte stone, a Carolinian sailing vessel
on an island w/coconut trees, wild plants,
native birds (Chungi), and a mwar,
symbolizing Chamorro/Carolinian unity,
all framed by a Teibwo (pacific basil).
