The US Quarter is currently on the seventh design in its entire history. President George Washington has been the face of the quarter-dollar coin since 1932, but prior to him, Liberty was the dominant figure on the quarter. One of the shortest-lived Liberty designs was that of Standing Liberty from Hermon Atkins MacNeil. Today, 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters are available to you online at Silver.com.

All US silver coins issued up to 1964 had 90% silver content. These coins had 90% silver content with a balance of 10% copper that largely consisted of the core of the coin. With rising silver prices in the 1960s, the US Mint transitioned its dime, quarter, and half-dollar coins away from the costly 90% silver content and toward a new cupro-nickel alloy.
The 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters available to you in this product listing arrive with a small bag. That bag contains a total of four individual US quarters for a total of $1 (USD) face value. All of the coins, regardless of date mark, come from the production range of the Standing Liberty Quarter. We cannot guarantee the specific date marks of the coins you receive. You could receive four coins with the same date mark or a wide variety of different dates.
On the obverse side of 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters is the image of Standing Liberty created by Hermon Atkins MacNeil. Taking cues from the disinterest in getting involved in World War I in Europe, MacNeil displayed Liberty in the gap of a wall with the US heraldic shield on a circular battle shield ready to defend the nation. In her right hand, however, she clutched an olive branch.
The reverse face of 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters features the design of an American bald eagle flying through the sky. The eagle glides gracefully with its wings at full stretch and up behind its figure forming a V-shape.
