The birth of the Silver Washington Quarter dates back well beyond its 1932 introduction into circulation in the US. In 1924, Congress created the United States George Washington Bicentennial Commission. The goal of the commission was to plan an event for 1932 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Washingtons birth in 1732.
Part of that celebration would be the release of Washingtons effigy on an American circulation coin. The US Quarter was chosen to feature an image of the first President of the United States, replacing the Standing Liberty Quarter design which was in circulation from 1916 to 1930.
90% Silver Washington Quarters consist only of those struck by the United States Mint between 1932, when the coins were introduced, and 1964 when the last of the 90% silver content US circulation coins were struck. The Coinage Act of 1965 changed the metal composition of circulation coins in the country, removing all precious metals.
On the obverse of the 90% Silver Washington Quarter is a left-profile portrait of President George Washington. It was created by John Flanagan based upon a bust of the president created in 1786 by William Cousins. This image remains in use, modernized over the years, on the US Quarter and is the longest-running US circulation coin design.
The reverse side of the coin features the image of the American bald eagle, clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons. Engravings of the nation of issue, the phrase E Pluribus Unum, and the face value are included on this side.
