Standing Liberty Quarters | 90% Silver
The Standing Liberty Quarter is widely considered by Coin Collectors to have the most beautiful design in Coinage History.These Standing Liberty Quarters are interesting for collectors because they represent a uniquely militaristic portrayal of Lady Liberty designed by Hermon Atkins MacNeil preceding World War I. This was a time when America was eager to project its military strength toward the invading forces in Europe. Because of their wide circulation, few mint-state specimens exist, and our offerings are no exception. However, these coins represent a very cost-effective way to invest in 90% pure silver bullion in a coin that is guaranteed by the United States Treasury as a means of trade. Though they carry a stated face value of twenty-five cents, each coin’s intrinsic value in silver bullion far exceeds its denomination. The Standing Liberty quarter is composed of 90% silver bullion and 10% copper for a total of .179 troy ounces of silver, and weighs 6.2 grams with a diameter of 24.3 millimeters. After submitting several design proposals, MacNeil’s powerful Standing LIberty design was eventually accepted. The widely circulated Standing Liberty Quarters were struck by the United States Mint from 1916 to 1930, and they were very popular silver coins that replaced the Barber Quarter. The coins received a redesign immediately in 1917 and again in 1925 to make the coins’ date marks more durable.
