    CoinCorgi Tell your dog I said hi!

    I think this is the earliest I've seen a new coin of any denomination.

    Bessie Coleman [from the U.S. Mint]:

    Bessie Coleman was a pilot, advocate, and pioneer who flew to great heights as the first African American and first Native American woman pilot and first African American to earn an international pilot’s license.

    The reverse design depicts Bessie Coleman as she suits up in preparation for flight, her expression reflective of her determination to take to the skies, the only place she experienced a freedom she did not have on the ground. The inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “QUARTER DOLLAR,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “BESSIE COLEMAN,” and “6.15.1921,” the date Coleman received her pilot’s license.

    Cool. Learn something new every once in awhile.

    Not sure I have any more "holes" left to fill with any more modern circulation coins. I'm not planning on buying any new "holes" for the massive quantities of new designs coming down the pike, so these may just go back to the wild.

    got my first 2023 as the Bessie Coleman quarter at my local grocery store Wegmans

    they usually get new coins fairly quickly when they are released
