Guam's Quarter depicts an outline of the island with the region's mountains clearly visible. Above the state outline, there is a Flying Proa boat which many people on the island use for fishing.

Below the island there is a Latte Stone (or Latde). These pillars used to support ancient buildings on the island. Today, only the pillars remain. The Latte Stones have become a proud symbol of the Guamanian people.

The caption on the quarter reads "Guahan I TanĂ³ ManChamorro," which translates to "Guam - Land of the Chamorro." The Chamorro are native to Guam.
