  • Description:

    Replacing the Barber Quarter, the Standing Liberty was President Theodore Roosevelt's attempt to making US coinage a work of art again. The Standing Liberty Quarter was minted from 1916 until 1930. Although there were some low mintage years, the Standing Liberty Quarter's average mintage is quite high. The 1919-S Standing Liberty Quarter has a low mintage of only 1.8 million. Considered to be in good condition, the 1919-S Standing Liberty Quarter contains severe wear on both sides of the coin, including main image details, leaving the coin to be very smooth and lacking in detail. For collectors, learning about the mints that produced historical coin series is just as important as the actual history of the coin. 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!

    Until 1925, the Standing Liberty was weakly struck, causing the coin's date to wear off without difficulty. The issue was finally fixed in 1925, but many circulated quarters still have weak dates, even if they have a higher grade. On the reverse, a flying eagle is depicted, along with the coin's monetary value. The obverse displays a warrior-like Lady Liberty, guarding herself with a shield. The coin's date of mintage is also etched into the obverse. Carrying the "S" mint-mark, the 1919-S Standing Liberty Quarter was minted at one of the most prominent mints in the US.
