  • Description:

    The Proof Washington Quarter, after 1964, is comprised of a copper/nickel alloy. The San Francisco Mint has earned a well-deserved title of being one of the best mints in production, having a more humble beginning, where it opened in 1854 for the famous gold rushes. The San Francisco Mint is mainly used to produce proof sets each year but also have had their hands in other low mintage coin series. Most collectors know that the San Francisco Mint’s coin mintages are also very competitive and carry higher premiums since they are more difficult to find. The 1982-S Proof Washington Quarter has an average mintage, of just over 3.8 million, and is in flawless proof condition.

    George Washington was born in 1732 and passed away in 1799. Washington held the first presidential office, after leading the country towards victory in the Revolutionary War. Being a non-partisan entity, Washington was respected by politicians in all parties and was favored as the “father of the country.” Washington had the option of living an easy life in Virginia, enjoying the riches of what his family left him. Instead, he joined the military and became a leader in the trenches. The bicentennial year for his birthday was in 1932, wherein the US Mint wanted to dedicate a coin series to him and the Washington Quarter was officially produced.
