2021 Quarter – Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, Alabama


The 2021 Quarter - Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, Alabama

The final coin in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site in Alabama commemorates the famous Tuskegee Airmen. The term ‘Tuskegee Airmen’ pertains to heroes, both men and women of diverse nationalities. They were composed of nearly 1,000 pilots and more than 15,000 support staff (including navigators, bombardiers, and mechanics). The site preserves five historic structures used during primary flight training in World War II.

The reverse shows a Tuskegee Airman pilot suiting up to join the fight during World War II with the Moton Field control tower in the background. Two P-51 Mustangs pass overhead. The inscription ‘THEY FOUGHT TWO WARS’ is arced across the top as a reference to the dual battles the Tuskegee Airmen fought – fascism abroad and racial discrimination at home.
