1916 marks the centennial of three of America’s finest coin designs from the so-called Golden Age of American coinage. A movement that started in 1905 to revamp all of America’s circulation currency design came to a head in 1916, with new designs for the dime, quarter, and half dollar. The Standing Liberty quarter was popular in its day, and right now is available as the 2016 ¼ oz Gold American Standing Liberty Quarter Coin on Silver.com.

President Theodore Roosevelt initiated the drive to revitalize all American currency when he commissioned Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create new designs for the $20 and $10 gold eagle coins. This drive culminated in the release of three new designs in 1916.

Adolph A. Weinman famously created the Mercury Dime and Walking Liberty Half Dollar, but it was Hermon Atkins MacNeil who submitted the Standing Liberty design. It was as patriotic as any American coin design of the day, with the symbolism of Liberty standing in the gap of a wall signifying the nation’s readiness to defend itself from all threats.

Each 2016 ¼ oz Gold American Standing Liberty Quarter Coin in this Silver.com listing is a perfect MS70 specimen according to the PCGS. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws. In order to qualify for the First Strike designation, coins must arrive at the PCGS within the first 30 days of the release date set by the US Mint.

On the obverse is Atkin’s Standing Liberty design, with one crucial change. After winning approval for his design in 1916, the US Mint altered MacNeil’s design to include a chain-mail chest plate for Liberty, whom MacNeil had originally depicted bare-chested.

The reverse of the 2016 ¼ oz Gold American Standing Liberty Quarter features the American bald eagle in flight. Additional engravings not featured on the original coin include this product’s metal content, purity, and weight.
