United States Mint Artist Infusion Program Designer Benjamin Sowards created the reverse design, which United States Mint Medallic Chief Engraver Joseph Menna sculpted.

Each coin in this series features a common obverse (heads) design depicting a portrait of George Washington.  This design was originally composed and sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser as a candidate entry for the 1932 quarter, which honored the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth.  The inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2023.”
