  • Description:

    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.

    The 1927 Standing Liberty Quarter has a high mintage, of over 11 million! The 1927 Standing Liberty Quarter is considered to be in very good condition, with extreme wear on both sides. The Philadelphia Mint assisted in the production of the Standing Liberty Quarter, minting some of the highest mintages of the series. The Philadelphia Mint is prominently known for being the first US Mint in US history, established in 1792. The Philadelphia Mint stills stands today and is continuing the release new coin series. Before 1925, the Standing Liberty Quarter's date die was weak, causing all of the coins to wear down quickly. The problem was corrected in 1925, allowing all coins minted after that to have stronger struck dates.
