Powerful Moton Field Design by Chris Costello
Obverse: John Flanagan's 1932 portrait of President George Washington features on the obverse. The inscriptions "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are included to the left and right of the image, respectively. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "QUARTER DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim.
Reverse: Phebe Hemphill sculpted Chris Costello's reverse design. Two P-51 Mustangs maneuver overhead as a pilot gets ready for training below.
