  • Description:

    Succeeding the Barber coinage, the Standing Liberty Quarter offers a new design aesthetic many people, including the president at the time, desired. Theodore Roosevelt wanted to get away from the boring and simplistic portraits of Lady Liberty and make US coinage a work of art again. Famous sculptor, Hermon Atkins MacNeil, was called upon by the mint's director to take on such a responsibility. The design MacNeil first introduced was very militaristic in detail and was rejected by the Commission of Fine Arts. MacNeil then added dolphins to represent the world's famous oceans, since this design had never been used before, and was accepted for a short time. The US Mint revised the quarter, again, and without MacNeil's permission, causing him to complain publicly about the disrespect. MacNeil was given the chance to revise the coin one more time, in 1917, and the design was used for the rest of the production.

    The 1918-S Standing Liberty Quarter is in good condition and has a high mintage of over 11 million. The 1918-S Standing Liberty Quarter will contain heavy amounts of wear, with a barely readable date. The 1918-S Standing Liberty Quarter is pretty accessible in most conditions, giving collectors the option of their grade of choice. The infamous San Francisco Mint, which is dated all the way back to the California gold rushes, is one of those mints. This west coast-based mint was established to help prospectors turn their mined treasure into currency. In just its first year in production, the San Francisco Mint turned $4 million worth of gold into coins!
