Product Information
The Seated Liberty Quarter is yet another coin that will make you the envied one amongst other coin collectors. Designed by chief engraver Christian Gobrecht, the 1876 Seated Liberty Quarter was minted between the years 1838 to 1891. This silver coin depicted a robed Liberty seated on a rock, holding in her right hand the Union Shield inscribed with LIBERTY and a staff topped with a Liberty cap to her left on the obverse. The reverse of this Seated Liberty Quarter features a naturalistic eagle with a shield superimposed upon its breast and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is inscribed above the eagle. The Goddess Liberty is enclosed within 13 stars that depict the 13 American colonies on this 1876 Seated Liberty Quarter. Composed of 90 percent silver, this Seated Liberty Quarter underwent considerable changes in design across the years. Circulated for 53 years, this silver coin comes with reeded edges to deter its counterfeiting and fraudulent use.
