1932 to Date Washington Quarters

The Washington Quarter was designed by John Flanagan. The regular issue coin has George Washington on the obverse, and an eagle on the reverse. It was initially issued as a circulating commemorative, but was made a regular issue coin in 1934. There have been three significant changes in the series since its inception in 1932.

In 1965, the composition was changed from 90% silver to a clad or sandwich metal of 75% copper and 25% nickel, bonded to a pure copper core. The second modification came in 1975, when Jack Ahr's Bicentennial "Drummer Boy" design appeared on the reverse, with the dual-date 1776-1976 on the obverse. In 1977, the regular design returned. Beginning in 1999, however, the Washington quarter was changed no less than five times per year as each of the fifty states is commemorated on the quarter's reverse.

This will continue until 2008. The statutory legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the value QUARTER DOLLAR have been relocated to the obverse to provide space for the distinctive reverses. Whether the old type will resume after 2008 is still uncertain.
