    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. George Washington was born in 1732 and was 67 years old when he passed away. A favorite Founding Father to many, Washington was also the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary war and he also oversaw the creation of the Constitution. Referred to as the “father of his country,” during his time in the spotlight, Washington grew up in rural Virginia. He was raised by wealthy tobacco planters, who owned large plantations and slaves. When he was old enough, he inherited all of his families wealth, along with their workers. Washington decided to take his destiny into his own hands when he joined the Colonial Militia. From there, he earned his way through ranks, becoming a well-known leader. It took 200 years from his date of birth to make a coin series in his honor.
