The United States Quarter has been available from the United States Mint since its very inception. The first widely available design was the Draped Bust struck from 1796 to 1807. Though its early decades saw variable production runs with versions of the Draped Bust and Capped Bust Liberty design, since 1838 the US Quarter has been regularly produced each year.

US Quarters have been dominated by two long-running designs during the history of this denomination. The first of these was the famous Seated Liberty design from Christian Gobrecht. Used on a range of different silver and gold coins in the 19th century, this design was on the quarter dollar from 1838 to 1891. It depicted Liberty in a seated position with the US heraldic shield at her side and a flag in her left hand.
The other major design is the Washington Quarter. This is the modern design still featured on the US quarter and it has been there since 1932. President George Washington’s bust was placed on the circulation quarter in 1932 to honor his 200th birthday and it remains there in the 21st century. It has long been accompanied in most years by the reverse design of the American bald eagle clutching a collection of arrows and an olive branch.
In between these two series, there were too short-lived collections. The Barber Coin design for the quarter was available from 1892 to 1915 and depicted Liberty’s head in right-profile relief with a Greco-Roman inspired design. The reverse featured a version of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The other coin design is the Standing Liberty coin from 1916 to 1930. On the obverse is Liberty “standing in the gap” to defend the nation. She wears chain mail on her chest and guards herself with her shield. The reverse of this quarter is the only one not to use a variation on the heraldic eagle as it bears an American bald eagle in flight.
