I want it!! I collect the quarters. I'm finishing up the collection my Grandma started before she passed away a few years ago. She was born in 1906, so she saw a few states come in and saw alot of history. She was a really special person.

I'll pm you!

I found a Puerto Rico quarter today, that means the Samoa and Mariana Island quarters can't be too far behind.

Well I still haven't found a Samoa quarter with the Kava Bowl but I did find a Guam quarter today with an outrigger canoe


Is Guam considered part of Polynesia?

I'm really not a coin collector. We got a book with 55(?) slots in it when the kids were little, I finally found all the states and territories to fill the book and quit looking at quarters.

Today I happened to find a Gettysburg National Park quarter in my pocket, turns out they have a new series of quarters that will feature a national park from each state and territory. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park quarter will be released sometime later this year. Final image selection has not yet been made, here are some of the leading designs (sorry, no tiki)



Now I guess I'll have to get another book and start a collection "for the grandchildren"

The "City of Refuge" IS a National Park, so I suppose they are waiting to put a Tiki on US currency.

There is a postage stamp. Here are two First Day of Issue cachets in my collection...




There are MANY others. Visit your local stamp and coin shop.

I just got one of the Hawai'i Volcanoes quarters today, first one I've seen!
Still haven't come across any of the Samoa or Guam ones yet, though.
