All US circulation coins struck with silver prior to 1964 contain .900 pure silver in the content of the coin. These 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters all feature .900 pure silver as they were in circulation from only 1916 to 1932.
The Standing Liberty design on the US quarter was one of the more short lived designs from the US Mint. Starting in the 1910s, the US Mint began to work on replacing and modernizing coin designs, many of which were created in 1892 by Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber (US Mint 1879 to 1917).
Standing Liberty replaced the Barber Quarter design, but was itself replaced after just 14 years on the coin. Standing Liberty Quarters were discontinued in 1930, with no new designs issued in 1931. Starting in 1932, the US Mint released the Washington Quarter, which remains in circulation today.
On the obverse of 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters youll find the image of Liberty standing between the break in a wall. In God We Trust is engraved on the wall, with two words from the motto on either side of the break. Liberty was originally depicted by MacNeil as a topless figure, but once in circulation the coins featured Liberty with a chain mail chest plate.
The reverse of the Standing Liberty Quarter was also designed by MacNeil. It featured the American bald eagle in flight, wings outstretched, with engravings of E Pluribus Unum, the nation of issue, and face value of the coin.
All 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters in this listing have a condition of average circulated. Coins in this condition show signs of wear and tear that typically result from use as a medium of exchange or from mishandling.
