The obverse will continue to bear the familiar restored 1932 John Flannagan image of George Washington.
The reverse side design depicts a Samoan fruit bat mother hanging in a tree with her pup. The image evokes the remarkable
care and energy that this species puts into their offspring. The design is intended to promote awareness to the species
threatened status due to habitat loss and commercial hunting. The National Park of American Samoa is the only park in the
United States that is home to the Samoan fruit bat.
