Put In Your Twenty-Five Cents

The Governor released two designs for the Guam quarter today and is encouraging all residents to take part in the selection process by voting online for the design they think best represents Guam. The design with the most votes will be recommended to the U.S. Mint.

I think it’s cool they are leaving it up to the public to decide which design will be minted. After all, the committee could have just decided on a design and sent it away and we’d all just be surprised when the quarters started circulating. I’m all for group participation and feedback. I’d also love to have a look at the rejected submissions.
So which will you choose? Click here to cast your vote!

    I kinda like the proas version but am like the latte stone in the left one. I think I vote on the right one.

    Artistically I like the 2nd image, but I like the fact that the 1st shows people what the island looks like. Most people in the US know what Texas, California, Hawaii, etc. look like. But most wouldn’t know the outline of Guam from Greenland.

    I think I prefer the one on the right. An outline of Guam is nice, but even with that – almost nobody has the faintest idea where Guam is, let alone that it’s a part of the U.S.

    The coin on the right is more artistic.

    I like the right one. I think many people on the mainland would be more intrigued to learn about Guam because the artistic work stands out compared to the other state quarters.

    Either will be uniquely suited and reflective of Guam. The one on the right depicting The Great Seal of Guam image is well known and somewhat of an Icon unto itself. It seems that the one on the left would introduce and arouse interest in the Proa, Latte Stones and the Island of Guam. And to add my personal reason for preferring the one on the left, I like to rub my thumb on coins and it would be nice to be able to touch the topography of the Island 🙂 Another neat attribute would be the ability of children “including us grown kids” to put the quarter under paper and do a cool pencil rubbing of the Island, always a plus!
