Authorized by the Federal Act of April 2, 1792, the quarter dollar denomination was not minted until 1796. Ms. Liberty appeared with a bow in her long hair from 1796 through 1807, and with a cap inscribed LIBERTY from 1815 through 1838. The denomination “25C” didn’t appear until 1815, on the reverse. The design was changed to Liberty Seated from 1838 through 1891. The Liberty Head (usually called the “Barber” type after the designer Charles Barber) design was launched in 1892, and was used through 1916 when it was replaced by the Standing Liberty type. The first year of the Standing Liberty quarter was quickly withdrawn due to complaints about Ms. Liberty’s exposed breast, resulting in a low mintage—highly valued by collectors. The other key date in the Standing Liberty type is the overdate 1918/7-S. On the occasion of George Washington’s 200th birthday, his portrait first appeared on 1932 quarters, and continues to this day. Quarters were issued featuring the 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories from 1999 through 2009; and commemorative America the Beautiful™ quarters, featuring sites of natural or historic significance in each state, beginning in 2010 and continuing through 2021.
