  • 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 1926-D Standing Liberty Quarter was minted by the Denver Mint and carries the "D" mint-mark. The 1926-D Standing Liberty Quarter is in very good condition, which is very worn down with detailing missing. The mintage, for the 1926-D Standing Liberty Quarter, is low at only 1.7 million. The Denver Mint stands as the lead coin producer in the world and has earned its way since 1906. The Denver Mint helped to mainly supplement coin collections but slowly, through the years, has become a primary mint. This Colorado based mint also stuck to lower mintages, for its coins, naturally becoming popular among collectors.
