(1916-1930) Standing Liberty Quarter Coin

CoinTrapTM Commentary: First issued to the public in 1916, the Standing Liberty Quarter has become a valuable coin, particularly in the higher grades. There are two types of Standing Liberty Quarters. Type one was minted from 1916 to 1917, and features a bare-breasted Liberty carrying an upraised shield in one hand and an olive branch in her other hand.  In 1917, type two was issued with several modifications, in particular the covering of Liberty’s chest with chain mail. As the story goes, the general public was not very enthralled with the bare-breasted version of the coin.  

Standing Liberty Quarter coins dated before 1925 are generally key dates and tend to fetch significantly higher prices than coins produced after 1925.

Coin Value: What is the value of your Standing Liberty Quarter coin?  It all depends on a few important factors. The Standing Liberty quarter coin worth or value depends on these main factors: (1) your coin’s grade, (2) your coin’s finish, (3) the mint mark (S for San Francisco, and D for Denver), and (4) scarcity/demand. Regarding your coin’s grade, it has become a standard in the field of numismatics (coin collecting) to grade coins on a point-scale from 1 (poor) to 70 (perfect).  This is also referred to as the “Mint State” or just “MS” for short. Click here to find the up-to-date estimated value of your Standing Liberty Quarter coin from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS®), which takes the factors mentioned above into account*. If you do not know the grade of your Standing Liberty Quarter, you can take it to your local coin dealer and ask that they have it graded at one of the three major coin grading services.
