  • Description:

    In 1932, the first Washington Quarter was struck. Being one of the first images of a real person, the Washington Quarter replaced the Standing Liberty Quarter. At first, the US Mint desired to replace the half dollar with Washington’s portrait, to celebrate the first president’s bicentennial of his birth. Although the Commission of Fine Arts and Congress passed the design for the half dollar, the Treasurer wanted a different design and denomination for Washington. The Washington Quarter is still the US Quarter today and is also one of the longest running coin series in US history. Minted by the first mint, the Philadelphia Mint, the 1932 Washington Quarter is in very fine condition and will be packaged in a coin flip. The Philadelphia Mint was first established in 1792 and has been the main US Mint branch for over 200 years.

    George Washington was the nation’s first president and is often nicknamed, “the father of the country.” Washington grew up on a tobacco plantation, in rural Virginia, where his family were wealthy and could afford him to go to better schools. He even inherited the tobacco plantation but instead of following footsteps, Washington enlisted in the military. Washington was quickly recognized as a strong leader and quickly moved up in rank. In later years, Washington led the US Continental Army to victory about Great Britain in the Revolutionary War. Due to his non-partisan political stand, it is said that Washington is among the list of best presidents in US history.
