History of the Clad Washington Quarter

The United States first placed President George Washington on the quarter 1932. They did this to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his birth.

It was intended to be a one-year commemorative coin. Due to the Great Depression, lack of demand for new quarters suspended production for a year. When demand increased again in 1934, the United States Mint resumed production with the commemorative design of 1932.

The mint first produced Washington quarters using an alloy of 90% silver and 10% copper. However, in 1964 the price of silver was rising rapidly. The mint decided to eliminate silver from U.S. coinage and change the composition of the coin to an outer layer of 75% copper and 25% nickel clad to an inner core of pure copper. Production of these coins continued through 1998. The following year the United States Mint introduce the 50 State Quarters Program.

Coin Market Analysis

Clad Washington quarters have been minted by the millions and are still in circulation today. Therefore, circulated examples are only worth face value while uncirculated coins are plentiful and widely available for a small premium over face value.

The following Washington quarters in any condition, are worth considerable more than common circulating coins:

  • Any Proof coin
  • All silver and silver clad issues
  • 1982 and 1982-D in uncirculated condition
