                    ``(B) Silver coins.--Notwithstanding subsection 
                (b), the Secretary may mint and issue such number of 
                quarter dollars of each design selected under paragraph

                such territory are minted pursuant to this subsection, 
                this subsection shall cease to apply with respect to 
                such territory.
