Unlike other quarter designs, the U.S. Virgin Islands Territory Quarter has a more detailed design. The obverse of the coin features the inscription, Liberty, and a modified Washington Quarter. The reverse of the coin shows the outlines of the islands, including the bananaquit bird and tyre palm trees. The reverse features an inscription that reads “In God We Trust,” as well as the inscription, and can be found under the motto.
Although the standard-grade US Virgin Islands clad quarter only has a face value of $0.25, it sells for a premium in uncirculated condition.

An S proof US Virgin Islands quarter will fetch you between $4.50 and $15 depending on its grade.
