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

                Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern 
                Mariana Islands.
            ``(6) Other provisions.--
                    ``(A) Application in event of admission as a 
                state.--If the District of Columbia or any territory

                such territory are minted pursuant to this subsection, 
                this subsection shall cease to apply with respect to 
                such territory.
            ``(7) Territory defined.--For purposes of this subsection,
