The American Samoa quarter coin is set to be publicly released in late July in a ceremony to be held in Pago Pago.

Governor Togiola Tulafono says he has been informed by officials of the U.S. Department of Treasury and U.S. Mint that they will travel to the territory in late July to help launch the American Samoa Quarter.

Togiola says the Territorial Quarter will go into circulation on July 26, the day it is released by the Federal Reserve Bank.
