A Bicentennial Commission organized by Congress eventually recommended honoring the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth in 1732 with a one-year issue of his bust on the half-dollar coin, thus replacing the Walking Liberty design for just the 1932 issue. Instead, Congress decided to replace the US Quarter design permanently with the image of Washington.
This decision had been made a bit easier for Congress given the suspension of the US Quarter. Even though the Standing Liberty design was first released on the quarter in 1916, several redesigns of the imagery and the lack of its popularity with the American people lead to the suspension of the design in 1930. After not issuing fresh quarters in 1931, the US Mint was permitted to introduce the new Washington bust on the quarter in 1932.
The obverse of the 90% Silver Washington Quarter comes with a left-profile bust of the first President of the United States of America. Inscriptions of “Liberty” above his head and “In God We Trust” to the left of the design field are accompanied by a date mark at the bottom of the design field.
On the reverse side of 90% Silver Washington Quarters is a depiction of the American bald eagle. Here, the bald eagle is front-facing with its head looking to the left of the coin. Its talons clutch a sheaf of arrows wrapped in an olive branch.
