  • Description:

    The 1920-D Standing Liberty Quarter has a low mintage, of just over 3 million and is in good condition. Being difficult to locate in all conditions, the 1920-D Standing Liberty Quarter has extreme wear on the entire coin. 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. The 1920-D Standing Liberty Quarter's date is barely readable since it was minted before the revision in 1920. Minted from 1916 until 1930, the Standing Liberty Quarter replaced the Barber Quarter. The Standing Liberty was President Theodore Roosevelt's attempt to making US coinage a work of art again. Although there were some low mintage years, the Standing Liberty Quarter's average mintage is quite high.

    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 Standing Liberty Quarter's production.
