  • Description:

    The Standing Liberty Quarter was minted from 1916 until 1930. Replacing 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. The 1927 Standing Liberty Quarter is in very fine condition and has a mintage of over 11 million. Although the Standing Liberty Quarter series generally contains higher mintages, these coins are hard to find in various conditions.

    The Standing Liberty Quarter was minted for 15 years before being replaced by Washington Quarter. The design of the Standing Liberty came as a breath of fresh air at a time when Roosevelt desired to bring back art on currency. After several revisions, the Standing Liberty depicts a warrior-like Lady Liberty, wearing chain mail on her chest and is holding a shield with one hand. The other hand is holding an olive branch, signifying peace. The date of mintage is inscribed underneath Liberty's sandaled feet. The reverse features a large eagle in flight, with the coin's monetary denomination of a quarter dollar. From a very militaristic theme to dolphins to a more peaceful Liberty, the Standing Liberty Quarter has come a long way during its production.
