  • Description:

    The 1988-S Proof Washington Quarter has an average mintage of over 3.2 million and is in perfect proof condition. Ever since 1965, the US Mint began using a copper/nickel clad alloy to make coins, instead of the coveted 90% silver. The San Francisco Mint was one of the first mints in the US and uses the "S" as its mint-mark. George Washington’s portrait is featured on the obverse with the reverse design of the US National Seal. The US Mint produced the Washington Quarter to honor the first president’s bicentennial birth year, in 1932, and his portrait has stayed on the quarter ever since.

    In 1789, Washington was elected the first president of the United States and held the office for 8 years. Washington made history and earned the respect worldwide when he decided to step down, instead of keep running for president. Compared to other world leaders, who usually “reign” until they die, Washington desired to see the country thrive with new leadership every 4-8 years and not a minute longer. Washington began his career by inheriting a tobacco farm in Virginia. Instead of riding out his family’s fortune, he enlisted. He was quickly recognized as an outstanding leader and was promoted to Senior Officer in the Colonial Militia during the French and Indian War. His early successes only set him up for further greatness when he was the Commander in Chief for the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.
