This 2017 Frederick Douglass National Historic Site Quarter is minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
In 2017, the second quarter release from the United States Mint commemorates Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in Washington, DC. This strike is the 37th of 56 scheduled as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Created by Thomas Hipschen and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, it depicts Frederick Douglass seated at a writing desk. His home in Washington, D.C. appears in the background. Surrounding inscriptions read: "FREDERICK DOUGLASS," "DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA," "2017," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Quarter obverses share the same design, a portrait of George Washington as created by John Flanagan.
