The Guam quarter is the third in the 2009 District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters Program. Under the Organic Act of 1950, the people of Guam became American citizens and established a local government. The Guam quarter reverse design depicts the outline of the island, a flying proa (a seagoing craft built by the Chamorro people) and a latte stone (an architectural element used as the base of homes). The proa represents the endurance, fortitude and discovery of the Chamorro people. The vessel, made by expert carvers and sailed by master navigators, is admired as a technical marvel. The latte speaks to a historic icon that hails from the Micronesian area.
