When is the last time you looked at your quarter when you got change back at the store? Probably been a while right? Soon you might want to pay attention. Here’s why.
The late Maya Angelou, writer and civil activist, is about to become the the first Black woman to appear on U.S. currency. The U.S. just minted a new quarter with George Washington on the front, and Maya on the back. They went into circulation on Monday. So keep an eye out for them!
It will be the first in a series of American Woman quarters. Five women, including the first Chinese American movie star and the first woman to fly to space, will be featured on these new quarters this year. Pretty neat.
