The Original Commander-in-Chief Coin: The 1932 Washington Quarter!

The Washington Quarter was released in 1932 on the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth and at the time the coin was meant to be a one-year-only issue...but due to overwhelming popularity Congress authorized the design to be continued indefinitely! Simply put, the public LOVED the Washington Quarter and its simple yet beautiful design!

The Two 90% Silver Half Dollars that Collectors Forgot!

Released to great fanfare in 1982 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of our first president's birth. They were the first 90% silver coins struck by the U.S. Mint since 1964, and signified the return of 90% silver coinage to the United States Numismatics. The U.S. Mint released two versions of the George Washington Half Dollar...an uncirculated piece struck at the Denver Mint and it’s proof counterpart that was produced at the fabled San Francisco Mint. The coins themselves are works of art, with the obverse featuring Washington sitting on horseback, and the reverse showing Washington's home in Mount Vernon.

This 3pc. set is truly something special...for starters the Washington Quarter was one of the most popular coins in U.S. history and is still in circulation today! It is the second longest running coin in U.S. history! (Second only to the Lincoln Cent, which started over 109 years ago in 1909). Add in the two collecting secret Silver Half Dollars from 1982, and you have a first-year Washington collection that is truly iconic!
