|Summary||Depicts the outline of the island, a flying proa, and a latte stone.|
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 Tanó ManChamorro," which translates to "Guam - Land of the Chamorro." The Chamorro are native to Guam.
