History

These American Women quarters were minted in order to commemorate historic American women. These coins were first released in 2022.

Series

Different series are available. American Women quarters were minted out of three different mints- Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.

The quarters with the P mint mark were minted out of Philadelphia. Quarters with the D mint mark were minted out of Denver. Quarters with the S mint mark were minted out of San Francisco. The mint mark can be found on the obverse side of each coin under the date.

Design

Sculpter Laura Gardin Fraser's portrait of George Washington was chosen to be featured on the obverse side of the coin. She originally submitted this design in 1931. Her initials LGF can be found at the base of Washington's neck.

The reverse side of each coin features a historic American woman. Multiple designers were used to create these designs.

Value

The clad quarters and the silver quarters have different values.

Clad Quarters

Most clad state quarters in circulated condition will only be worth their face value of $0.25. Clad quarters in uncirculated condition can sell for a premium. Clad proof quarters will sell for higher prices.

Silver Quarters

Any silver American Women quarter is worth at least its weight in silver. These silver quarters are 99% silver.

The silver melt value for each coin is $4.56. This melt value is calculated from the current silver spot price of $22.38 per ounce.

Ultimately, the value of an American Women quarter will depend on its series and its condition. See the list below to learn the value for any individual coin.
