Designer & Sculptor
John Flanagan designed the original image of George Washington that was first featured on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar. That image of the first President of the United States has been on the quarter ever since (in one form or another) and will also be featured on the obverse (heads side) of all of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins.
A design showcasing a portion of Chaco Culture National Historical Park will be found on the reverse (tails side) of the silver bullion coin.
