  • Description:

    With a mintage of only 804,400, the 1860 Seated Liberty Quarter is hard to find in decent grades. Considered to be in extra fine condition, the 1860 Seated Liberty Quarter will contain slight wear with a little bit of tarnish. Extra fine is a great condition for those lower minted coins since the premium tends to be lower but the condition is still ideal. 1860 is an important date in US history because Abraham Lincoln was elected president later that year. Between 1860-1900, over 14 million immigrants will make their way to the US, most of which come non-voluntarily. The Seated Liberty Quarter series is perfect for experienced collectors, since it carries low minted coins with high premiums. Collectors also enjoy this series as an investment, due to its 90% silver content.

    The Seated Liberty series is one of the earlier coin collections that consisted of every coin matching in means of its design. Minted from 1836-1891, the Seated Liberty coin series goes down in history as one of the longest standing coin collections, after the modern Washington Quarter series. For a time, there was a misunderstanding of a law that coins needed to be minted for at least 25 years before being replaced. It wouldn't be until the end of the Barber coin series that this misunderstanding would be redirected. The Philadelphia Mint was established in 1792, by the original Founding Fathers, and as flourished in coin production ever since. Before the Denver Mint, the Philadelphia Mint was the lead coin producer in all of the US, outshining any of her sister mint branches.
