  • Description:

    The San Francisco Mint helped produce some of the most popular coin collections in history, including the Barber Quarters. This West Coast-based mint was first established in order to supply a place gold miners could sell their gold. It ended up being a very lucrative business, turning out $4 million dollars of gold in its first year. It quickly outgrew its first building and moved to the Granite Lady building, where it withheld its structure during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The building wasn't actually made of granite, just the basement was but the name was used for marketing and stuck. In 1937, it moved to its final facility that is still the San Fran Mint today.

    The Barber Quarter series was created when Mint Director, Edward Leech wanted to replace the Seated Liberty collection. Reaching out to the public for inspirational help, Leech was denied by local artists and resorted back to the mint for help. Chief Engraver, William Barber, was asked to design the new coins and had his design approved by Benjamin Harrison. The 1900-S Barber Quarter is in Almost Uncirculated condition, exhibiting slight wear but with all the main details intact. There was a healthy amount of Barber Quarters minted in 1900, by the San Francisco Mint, making this date easily attainable in better conditions for a lower premium. The 1900-S Barber Quarter will be packaged in a coin flip during shipment for protection.
