  • Description:

    The Standing Liberty Quarter succeeds the Barber coinage and 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 Standing Liberty Quarter's production.

    The 1928-S Standing Liberty Quarter has a mintage of 2.6 million and is in good condition. Exhibiting extreme heavy wear on both sides of the coin, the 1928-S Standing Liberty Quarter's date is also barely readable. The San Francisco Mint marks all of its coins with the "S" mint-mark and is considered to be one of the oldest mints in the US. The San Francisco Mint was established in 1854 and is known for its strong strikes and lower mintages.
