First & Last Washington Silver Quarters

 E-mail this product to a friend


The Washington Quarter was first issued in 1932 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth. It was designed by sculptor John Flanagan, who won a competition among nearly 100 artists and sculptors, and it was just the second circulating coin to feature a real person (after the Lincoln Penny).

The obverse depicts a portrait of Washington.  It was based on a bust by Jean Antoine Houdon that was commissioned by Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin and created in 1785 (during Washington’s lifetime).

• An eagle on the reverse is perched on a bundle of arrows above two olive sprigs.

• The Washington Quarter was struck in 90% silver from 1932 until 1964, after which date silver was eliminated from the Quarter due to rising bullion prices.  The 1964 coin was struck 50 years ago!

• Collectors always want “first” and “last” coins, and this collection brings together the coveted and rarely-seen first (1932) and last (1964) Washington Quarter struck in 90% silver for circulation.

• George Washington was one of America’s greatest patriots and is renowned as the “Father of our Nation.”  He was the first President of the United States from 1789-1797.
