Washington Quarter

Washington Quarter

The most recent of the United States Quarter has been the Washington. It was first minted in 1932, and has enjoyed a uninterrupted run from then until today. There have been small variations up unto 1999, and just one year of non-minatage in 1975. These coins were 90% silver up until 1964, at which time the US Mint switched to a copper and nickel mixture.

Our coin system is based of the Spanish milled dollars. One dollar could be broken in half making .50 and then broken down again to make a quarter dollar.

The Quarter was designed by John Flanagan and was based on a 1786 bust made by sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon. the reverse side has a Bald Eagle.

State Quarters

State quarters were issued between 1999 and 2008, these are very popular with collectors, but not worth much in terms of intrinsic value.

Current silver melt value* for a pre 1965 coin (90% Silver) is $3.17 and this price is based off the current silver spot price of $17.52 This value is dynamic so bookmark it and comeback for an up to the minute silver melt value.

* Notice as of December 2006 it is illegal to melt down US Minted Pennies and Nickels, and there is a $10,000 fine to help enforce the law. It is legal however to melt down silver dollars, half dollars, dimes, quarters for their content.
