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

                referred to in subsection (l)(1), subsection (l)(7) 
                shall apply, and this subsection shall not apply, with 
                respect to such State.
