American Women Quarters - Actress Anna May Wong
This month the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) cable channel has been showing films starring Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong.
Before showing the 1949 film "Impact" Turner's host Ben Mankiewicz gave a short biography of the actress and noted that:
"This year, Wong will appear on the face of the quarter as part of a special collection from the U.S. Mint honoring five pioneering women who changed American history".
Anna May Wong's quarter is part of the 2022 American Women Quarters Program and her coin is scheduled to be issued in October 2022.
