A ceremony in April launched the second coin in a series of six honoring the District of Columbia and the U.S. Territories. The 2009 Puerto Rico Quarter features an ocean-view on its reverse.

Along with the ocean, a hibiscus and a sentry box are also seen in the design. Puerto Rico played an important military role throughout its history, and the sentry box is a reminder of that past.

The Puerto Rico quarter was struck mainly for circulation, but uncirculated and proof versions exist as well.
