Value

The 1954 quarters with no mint mark and the 1954 D quarters don't have much numismatic value. In fine to extremely fine condtion each coin is only worth slightly more than its silver melt value. But in uncirculated condtion each coin is valued at around $10.

The 1954 S quarters have a more limited mintage but their prices are around the same as the other two mint varieties.

Proof coins are available and they are valued at around $15 each. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 67+ will sell for more. The Philadelphia mint issued out 233,000 proof coins.
