  • Description:

    The 1921 Standing Liberty Quarter has a low mintage of only 1.9 million and is in very fine condition. Being in very fine condition, the 1921 Standing Liberty Quarter has some wear, even on the main image details but the date should still be clearly visible. The Philadelphia Mint participated in the Standing Liberty Quarter production, producing some of the higher mintages of the series. Hermon Atkins MacNeil was the sculptor who designed the Standing Liberty. The US Mint Director, Robert Woolley, desired a big change from the Barber series design and MacNeil definitely delivered. The first design was more of a militaristic theme and was asked to be revised. MacNeil revised the first design, including dolphins to represent the famous oceans. In 1917, MacNeil came across a new design, without his approval, and started an uproar. He was then allowed to make the final revisions of Lady Liberty, which became the coin that was minted until 1930.

    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. 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.
