What began as a temporary commemorative quarter honoring the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth became the nucleus of a permanent coin series.
John Flanagan’s George Washington quarter is by far one of the most popular collectible coins today and easily the workhorse coin of all circulating U.S. coinage.
All silver George Washington quarters made from 1932 through 1964 have a minimal value of around $4 and up — so they’re definitely worth hanging on to, if you happen to find any in your loose change.
There are also several other silver George Washington quarters that you may find if you’re really lucky. Here are the rare Washington quarters to watch for:
- 1932-D — $115 and up
- 1932-S — $125 and up
- 1934 doubled die obverse — $75 and up
- 1937 doubled die obverse — $75 and up
- 1943-S doubled die obverse — $30 and up
- 1950-D/S — $30 and up
- 1950-S/D — $32 and up
Old & Rare Copper-Nickel Washington Quarters
These are the most valuable copper-nickel quarters you should look for:
- 1982-P — $3 and up (values for this quarter and the next 3 quarters are for specimens in circulated grades)
- 1982-D — $1.50 and up
- 1983-P — $5 and up
- 1983-D — $3.50 and up
- 2004-D Wisconsin quarter, extra leaf low — $130 and up
You’ll notice I didn’t mention anything about those 1776-1976 Bicentennial quarters, most of the 50 State quarters, or any of the America the Beautiful quarters. That’s because, while these coins are definitely fun to collect, the copper-nickel versions that usually pop up in pocket change are worth only face value if they have been worn.
