Over a month after the US Mint officially released the American Samoa Quarter, which is part of the 2009 D.C. & U.S. Territories Quarter Program, they are finally going to hold a release ceremony. Sales of the quarters in bags and rolls started on July 27th, but a ceremony was not held.
This is because Governor Togiola T.A. Tulafono would have been unable to attend at the end of July since he was not on the islands. Instead, he was en route to Washington D.C. on other urgent matters.
Still wanting a public presentation, the Mint is going to hold a release ceremony on September 3, 2009 in Pago Pago. In attendance will be United States Mint Deputy Director Andy Brunhart as well as Governor Tulafono.
