[1932-Date] Washington Quarters

The Washington Quarter was first issued in 1932 to mark the 200th Anniversary of George Washington’s birthday. Designed by John Flanagan whose initials “JF” can be found at the base of Washington’s neck, it was intended as a one year commemorative coin. However, it was received with such enthusiasm that the government decided to keep issuing the coin after a one year hiatus when no quarters were issued. Since 1934, at least one and in several years up to five different Washington Quarters have been issued. From 1932 until 1964, quarters were struck from .900 silver and .100 copper, weighed 6.25 grams and had a 24.3 millimeter diameter. With the Coinage Act of 1965, silver was eliminated from the alloy and the coins were made from two layers of copper-nickel bonded to an inner core of pure copper. The clad coins weigh 5.67 grams and have a 24.3 millimeter diameter.
