The United States Mint just unveiled the America the Beautiful Quarter designs for 2019. My design, a tribute to the Spanish Real coin, was selected for the State of Texas and the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.

Each quadrant divided by the Missionary Cross is symbolic of the old spanish missions and their legacy (from left to right and top to bottom): Mission centers, Heraldic Lion of Spanish Heritage, Wheat and Corn crops, and Irrigation aqueducts.
