Prior to 1965, silver coins minted in the United States contained 90% silver. After 1964, the United States mint decreased the amount of silver to 40% and then eventually eliminated silver from the coins all together. While some may refer to these coins as “junk silver”, the value of the silver within the coin is worth more than the face value of the coin itself.
The total face value of each bag is $100 USD.
The obverse depicts the left profile of our first president George Washington. Washington’s portrait was designed by John Flanagan. Flanagan used a 1786 bust of General Washington created by William Cousins as inspiration.
The reverse features America’s national bird, the American Bald Eagle.
The silver Washington Quarter was originally designed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth. While the Washington Quarter is still in production, the Coinage Act of 1965 ceased the use of silver in the production of American coinage. The 90% percent version of these silver quarters were only struck between 1932 and 1964.
These silver coins are circulated. They will show various levels of wear and tear.
