  • Description:

    From 1965-1967, the US Mint didn't produce proof sets but instead minted Special Mint Sets. These sets were overly produced, making the coins inside them very convenient for collectors to find. There were over 8 million 1966 SMS Washington Quarters minted and contain a finish that fits somewhere in between proof and BU. George Washington's well-known portrait it presented on the coin's obverse, as well as the coin's date of mintage. The reverse features the US National Seal and the coin's legal tender value of a quarter dollar. Packaged in a coin flip, the 1966 SMS Washington Quarter is protected while in transit. Collecting the Washington Quarter set is ideal for history aficionados or novice collectors.

    Washington began his career by inheriting a tobacco farm in Virginia. Instead of riding out his family’s fortune, he enlisted. He was quickly recognized as an outstanding leader and was promoted to Senior Officer in the Colonial Militia during the French and Indian War. His early successes only set him up for further greatness when he was the Commander in Chief for the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. In 1789, Washington was elected the first president of the United States and held the office for 8 years. Washington made history and earned the respect worldwide when he decided to step down, instead of keep running for president. Compared to other world leaders, who usually “reign” until they die, Washington desired to see the country thrive with new leadership every 4-8 years and not a minute longer.
