Value

These coins don't have much numismatic value because so many of them were minted. In fact you can still find some in circulation- it's rare but not impossible to find one of these coins in your change. This applies to both the 1964 quarters with no mint mark and the 1964 D quarters.

The value in circulated condition is worth at least its weight in silver. The silver melt value is $3.22 as of September 19, 2019. This melt value is calculated from the current silver spot price of $17.83 per ounce. Coins in uncirculated condition will sell for a slight premium.

Proof coins are available and they are valued at around $10 each. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 67+ will sell for more. The United States Mint sold 3,950,762 proof sets, which was a record number at the time. There was high demand because this was the last of the older proof sets that were minted from 1950-1964.
