History of Quarter Silver Coin

John, an American sculptor, designed this quarter for the birth bicentennial of George Washington, America’s first President. A special panel in Congress had an idea to replace this Walking Liberty Half Dollar with a Washington-based coin. The Standing Liberty Quarter became an issue for them, though, so they abandoned the plan. The US Mint switched from producing dimes to producing quarters.

Initially, the committee tasked Laura to design the commemorative Washington medal. Andrew Mellon, however, wanted Flanagan instead. People were accusing him of not wanting a woman to design this important piece. Like some older US coins, this quarter design is now minted on a very good quality. The absence of tiny details means that the designers can keep the image looking sharp & precise. The George Washington image dominates the 1944 silver quarter obverse. Tom Flanagan only changed the shape of his head & appearance of his hair.

The back of the coin is gorgeous with its large, boldly-designed eagle. The eagle’s wings are spread, representing power and gracefulness. It sits on top of olive branches, signifying a mix of military strength and peace regulations. There are words E PLURIBUS UNUM written above the eagle which means “out of many, one”. It is the official motto of the United States of America.
