 E-mail this product to a friend


• The Washington Silver Quarter was first issued in 1932 to honor the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth.

• The original coins were struck in traditional .900 pure silver.

• By the early 1960’s the price of silver bullion was rising so fast that the U.S. Mint was forced to abandon silver.

• The last Washington Silver Quarters were struck in 1964.

• Starting in 1965, the coins were struck in copper-nickel.

• This historic collection includes one Washington Silver Quarter from each of the last five years of issue – 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, and 1964.

• The most recent coin was issued over 40 years ago, and few of these coins remain for today’s collectors.

• Millions of silver coins have been melted since 1964 for the precious silver.

• Each coin in this collection was struck in the beauty of .900 pure silver. 

• These are the last five Quarters ever made for circulation in silver.

• The Washington Silver Quarter depicts a portrait of Washington on the obverse. 

• The portrait is based on a bust by Jean Antoine Houdon that was created during Washington’s lifetime. 

• The reverse shows an American eagle.

• There are five coins:  they are .900 silver and .100 copper.

• The coins are in hand-selected collectible condition

• The collection comes in a custom display wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.
