Design of these 90% Silver Washington Quarters
The obverse of these 90% Silver Washington Quarters features John Flanagan’s 1932 design, which he based on Jean-Antoine Houdon’s 1786 bust of President Washington. Washington faces directly to the left of the coin. His curly hair almost completely covers his ear, and much of it is held back in a ponytail. The national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” is inscribed under Washington’s chin on the left. The word “LIBERTY” arches over his head, taking up roughly the top quarter of the rim. The date of mintage of each coin is inscribed at the bottom under the effigy.
On the reverse of the coin, an eagle is perched on a bundle of arrows. The eagle’s wings are spread, and its head is turned toward the left of the coin. Two olive branches arch under the arrows. Over the eagle’s head and between the tops of its wings are the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” which is Latin for “From many, one.” That motto is taken from the Great Seal of the United States. Along the top half of the rim is the name of the country that issued the coin, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” while the face value, “QUARTER DOLLAR,” is inscribed under the olive branches.
