Fish around in your spare change and you’ll find plenty of Washington Quarters. This is the coin most people think of when they hear the word “quarter,” but 90 years ago between 1916 and 1930, the coin you’d find in your pocket was the Standing Liberty Quarter.
Struck in 90% fine silver, it displays a proud image of Lady Liberty with her left arm raised, uncovering a shield to protect our nation while in her right hand she holds the olive branch of peace. On the reverse, a bold eagle soars through the heavens. It’s a striking design, and during its existence it was struck at three different U.S. Mint branches: Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco.
Struck for only 14 years, this is one of the shortest-lived Quarters series ever released by the United States Mint and tracking down all three mint marks is no easy task. Let us do the work for you and secure this wonderful 3-coin set today! Each coin comes in circulated condition, housed together in a deluxe presentation case. Dates vary.
