In 2016, the United States Mint celebrated the 100th anniversary of three of its most venerable designs from the 20th century. Amidst a major overhaul of coin designs in the early 20th century, the United States Mint debuted designs in 1916 that would become icons of American coining: the Mercury Dime, Standing Liberty Quarter, and Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Today, you have the chance to purchase 2016-W Standing Liberty Quarter 1/4 oz Gold Coins at Provident Metals in perfect condition.
The American Gold Centennial Series was issued by the United States Mint in 2016 with three historic designs. Each coin was released with .9999 pure gold and a commemorative face value matching the original circulation coins the designs were used on. For example, these 2016 Standing Liberty Quarter 1/4 oz Gold Coins have a face value of $.25 (USD0, just like the quarter dollar the image originally featured on.
Hermon Atkins MacNeils image of Standing Liberty features on the obverse of the 2016-W Standing Liberty Quarter 1/4 oz Gold Coin. In this design, Liberty is featured standing between the gap in a wall with a shield in her left hand and her face looking to the heraldic east, viewing the Great War in Europe with caution. In her right hand, she clutches an olive branch symbolizing Americas desire to remain neutral and at peace.
An American bald eagle glides over the country in the reverse design of 2016-W Standing Liberty Quarter 1/4 oz Gold Coins. The eagle flies with its wings at full stretch as 13 stars are featured in the design along with inscriptions of United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, and Quarter Dollar.
Hermon Atkins MacNeils design was the shortest-lived image on the circulating denominations introduced in 1916. The Standing Liberty image was used on the quarter from 1916 to 1930, while the Mercury Dime image from Adolph A. Weinman was used on the dime from 1916 to 1944 and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin was from Weinman was on the 50-cent piece from 1916 to 1947.
