  • Description:

    The Denver Mint has proudly been producing coins since 1906; starting out as just a commemorative coin mint. The Denver Mint spread its wings and began participating in larger coin series, leaving its coins with appealing mintages for future collectors. One of these collections is the Standing Liberty Quarters. The 1917-D Type 1 Standing Liberty Quarter is in very fine condition and has a mintage of just 1.5 million. On the obverse, Lady Liberty stands with her head turned, almost as if she is keeping watch. Her garb summons the old warrior clothing, with chainmail on her breast plate and a round shield for protection. Liberty's other hand holds olive branches, which is the universal sign of peace. The date of mintage is etched into the area beneath her bare feet. The reverse displays a large eagle in flight, with wings outspread, and the coin's monetary value of a quarter dollar.

    Succeeded by the Washington Quarter, the Standing Liberty Quarter was minted for 15 years before being replaced. The design of the Standing Liberty came as a breath of fresh air at a time when Roosevelt desired to bring back art on currency. After several revisions, the Standing Liberty depicts a warrior-like Lady Liberty, wearing chain mail on her chest and is holding a shield with one hand. The other hand is holding an olive branch, signifying peace. The date of mintage is inscribed underneath Liberty's sandaled feet. The reverse features a large eagle in flight, with the coin's monetary denomination of a quarter dollar. From a very militaristic theme to dolphins to a more peaceful Liberty, the Standing Liberty Quarter has come a long way during its production.
