  • Description:

    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.

    The 1996-S Silver Proof Washington Quarter has a very low mintage of only 775,021 and contains the flawless glossy shine. From 1992-1998, the US Mint made special silver proof sets, including the Proof Washington Quarters that contain 90% silver. 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.
