Why add this 1805 American Draped Bust Silver Quarter Dollar coin to your collection of precious metals?

The Draped Bust Quarter was the first quarter dollar denomination coin produced by the U.S. Mint. The Draped Bust Quarter was struck for only five years, in 1796, and then from 1804 through 1807. The twenty-five cent denomination did not appear again in United States coinage until the introduction of the Capped Bust Quarter in 1815. The Quarter is struck from 0.1934 Troy oz. of .8924 fine silver, measuring 27.5 mm in diameter. The coin is among a mintage of 121,394 produced in 1805 at the Philadelphia Mint.

The Draped Bust Design by the U.S. Mint's First Chief Engraver Robert Scot

Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse, facing right, her flowing hair bound by a ribbon. The image is encircled by thirteen stars, along with the inscriptions "LIBERTY" and "1805."

The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle behind a striped shield grasping an olive branch and a cluster of arrows, below a curving row of clouds and thirteen stars. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "25 C."
