Product description

Product Information
Add one more to your enviable collection of the formerly used currencies by getting the 1964, Washington Quarter home. Released to celebrate the bicentennial birth day of America’s first president, this silver coin was minted as a tribute to the country’s patriot, George Washington. Hence, on the head of this Washington Quarter is engraved the side profile picture of George Washington and on the other side is the depiction of the presidential coat of arms. Weighing 6.25 g, the 1964, Washington Quarter was made up of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper until 1965 when it was changed to a copper-nickel clad. Designed by New York sculptor, John Flanagan this Washington Quarter was coined at three different mints, Philadelphia (no mint mark), Denver (D) and San Francisco (S). With reeded edges, this silver coin not only prevents counterfeiting but also helps in its identification with just a touch. This Washington Quarter was a replacement for the standing liberty quarter in the 1932.

Sound as Silver

The 1964 Quarter was the last year to be made in 90%
Silver. These coins disappeared quickly in the spring of 1965
once silver became profitable to melt. 90% silver coins to this day continue to hold their value as real money. In an uncertain world, many are looking for something besides banks,stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
A simple investment idea is to center some assets in items
which have real worth, both now and in the future. 90%
silver coins will always be valuable and really stay as
sound as silver.

Minted during the last year of pure silver coinage, the 1964 Washington Quarter is an excellent piece to add to anyone's collection. All mint strikes are strong, and the piece is still highly affordable in uncirculated conditions.

All quarters minted between 1932- 1964 contain 90% silver and weigh 6.25 grams. So if you melted this coin down it would be worth about $5.89 (March 2012) because of the precious metal content. Talk about inflation!! The problem is our money is not backed by silver and gold anymore, basically our money is worthless. I say this because it is printed by the Federal Reserve, which by the way is neither a Federal institution or holding reserves of anything. They print money as needed and than charge us 10% interest. The Federal Reserve has also never been audited. The Fed is above the law and outside the regulation of congress, and thus confirms it is unconstitutional by its very existence. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't actually have any gold in Fort Knox ether.

Stock up on silver and gold now.. eventually America will follow the path of the Romans and collapse after all monetary tricks to fund us fail. The Romans used stones as currency, we use paper. Wake up Sheeple.

The 1964 Washington Quarter is the last year the Washington quarter was minted with silver and probably the most affordable way to get silver when the economy is in upheaval. It also has a historical value and keeps very well in the protective case.
