|The 2009 Northern Mariana Islands quarter was the final commemorative coin in the US DC and Territories quarter series. With a total of only 72.8 million being struck, split roughly between the Philadelphia and Denver mints, this commemorative coin had the lowest mintage of all six coins in the DC and Territories quarter series. The design of the 2009 Northern Mariana Islands quarter pays homage to the native Carolinian people and the abundant natural resources found in the islands. On the reverse side of this US quarter, a limestone latte towers over palm trees on the shore. The latte is a column used in structures built by the Chamorro people, ancient inhabitants of the islands. A Carolinian canoe under full sails plies the sea in the background as two white fairy terns fly in formation overhead. The bottom border of this US quarter is a Carolinian mwar, or head lei symbolizing honor and respect. The other side of this US quarter is similar to all the state quarters that were minted. It features the head of George Washington with the country’s name across the top and “Quarter Dollar” across the bottom.|
