1916 to 1930 Standing Liberty Quarters

The Standing Liberty was designed by a prominent sculptor of the day, Hermon Atkins MacNeil.

The first Standing Liberty Quarters were struck in 1916 and the series continued through 1930, during which time over 226 million coins were struck at three different mints, Philadelphia (no mintmark), San Francisco (S), and Denver (D). One of our most beautiful coin designs, the Standing Liberty quarter is very popular with collectors today.

MacNeil’s obverse design features a standing, frontal view of Liberty. Her left arm is upraised, bearing a shield in a posture of protection. Being drawn from the shield by her right hand is a drapery, while this same hand offers up an olive branch.

The reverse depicts an American eagle, shown in full flight. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and motto E PLURIBUS UNUM are above, while the denomination QUARTER DOLLAR is below.
