Why buy this America the Beautiful 2019-W Clad War in the Pacific Quarter?
The United States Mint participated in the 2019 National Coin Week by releasing the first ever quarters issued for circulation to bear the "W" mint mark of the West Point Mint. Two million of each of the 2019 America the Beautiful Quarter designs were released directly into circulation, with no pieces reserved for collectors. This put the country on a national coin hunt for these important pieces.
Featuring Joel Iskowtiz's Poignant Asan Bay Design
John Flanagan's left-side portrait of President George Washington features at the center of the obverse. This design has appeared on American quarters since 1932 and is common to all coins in the America the Beautiful Series. The image is flanked by the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "LIBERTY." Above and below it are the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "QUARTER DOLLAR."
Michael Gaudioso sculpted a design by Joel Iskowitz for the reverse. It depicts American forces landing at Asan Bay as part of the effort to liberate the island. The positioning of the soldiers helps to convey the danger that they faced. The image is encircled by a rim frame in which there are four inscriptions, including "WAR IN THE PACIFIC" and "GUAM."
Beautifully Preeserved MS66
This coin received a Mint State 66 grade from the experts at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). That grade means that the piece was well struck.

Due to the shutdowns and the limited in-person business transactions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, physical currency has circulated at an extremely low rate, leading to a “coin shortage.”
Recently retiring from the U.S. Mint towards the end of 2020, Michael Gaudioso crafted numerous designs himself and from other United States Mint artists. Most notably, Michael Gaudioso is responsible for sculpting Emily Damstra’s new Type 2 Silver Eagle reverse design of 2021.
Quarters were first struck by the United States Mint in 1796 and have gone through many iconic design changes over the course of their history. Read more to learn about the storied legacy of the Quarter.
For the first time, hundreds of coin dealers and collectors plan to drop more than a million classic American coins like Buffalo nickels, Eisenhower dollars and more into circulation to spark greater interest in numismatics. The change in your pocket could be worth more than you know!
