US Mint Issues PR Quarter With Spanish Inscription


apnews.myway.com

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - The U.S. Mint on Thursday introduced its first coin with a Spanish-language inscription in honor of Puerto Rico.

The quarter is the latest in a series that already has recognized all 50 states and, like the others, it depicts the traditional profile of George Washington on one side.

But the reverse side shows a sentry box on a Spanish colonial fort and a hibiscus, the U.S. territory's official flower, along with the phrase: "Isla del Encanto".

So, the question here is, if Puerto Rico is getting a new quarter, with Washington's face on one side and a Spanish Fort on the other side, does this mean that this is a low-grade way to indoctrinate Puerto Rico into the United States utilizing the coin as a mean of advertising in advance?

I can remember many articles where it has been debated over years about the American citizens living in Puerto Rico demanding that it be allowed to brought in as the 51st state of America, as well as the citizens of Puerto Rico not wanting this to happen, at all. If the island nation has been near bankrupcty in the past, is this a way as well of arranging another "Bailout Package" through trying to shift to the U.S. Dollar, through the quarter?

Or:

Sometimes a quarter is just a quarter.


I don't see the conspiracy here.

I can see your point. I just thought perhaps the timing was odd, whereas America is going through an economic crises, we're being called out by China as being economically weak, the powers that be are attempting to make an international monetary systems, and now this quarter for Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is a US territory and has been so since 1898, despite what some Puerto Ricans claim it is not an independent nation.

The island's 4 million residents are litterly split 49% and 49% for either statehood or retaining colonial status with the balance being the 2% who favor independence. Irregardless, only the US Congress can admit them as a state or reject them.

Wait a minute, doesn't the United States Government consider Canada as another state?


Just kidding. Or am I?
