  • Description:

    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, keeping the design untouched until the series ended.

    The 1928-D Standing Liberty Quarter has a mintage, of over 1.6 million, and is difficult to find in higher grades. The 1928-D Standing Liberty Quarter is considered to be in fine condition, containing heavy wear on both sides of the coin. 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.
