On the Puerto Rico Quarter

Originally posted at www.prsun.blogspot.com



Que cool. La Isla del Encanto will soon have a U.S. Mint commemorative quarter. The U.S. Treasury earlier this week approved the design of the coin, which will be part of the popular U.S. states series and will feature a little Spanish. I like that!

Many Bronxites, including many Latinos, are struggling… Continue
