Just got this 2023 quarter and was curious about the reverse side so I magnified it on my phone.

What is on the obverse ?

Is it a laminated copper coin ?

Maybe an overstrike...

It's a 2023, Washington on the front. My issue is with all the BS inscribed on this woman's blouse/dress.

Apparently it's from a series honoring American women.

Appears there is only three doctor/scientist types in the entire list. The bulk of them are activists/journalists/performers. <sigh>

Thanks to Richard's link, looks to be:

The Jovita Idar Quarter is the ninth coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Jovita Idar was a Mexican-American journalist, activist, teacher, and suffragist.
