History of US Silver Dimes and Quarters
The United States began minting silver dimes and quarters in 1796. These coins were initially made of 90% silver and 10% copper, and they were intended to circulate as everyday currency.
Throughout the 19th century, the design of the dime and quarter changed several times. In 1837, the Liberty Seated design was introduced, featuring a seated figure of Liberty on the obverse and an eagle on the reverse. This design remained in use until 1891, when it was replaced by the Barber design, featuring a portrait of Liberty on the obverse and an eagle on the reverse.
In 1916, the United States Mint introduced a new design for the dime and quarter, known as the Mercury dime and Standing Liberty quarter. The Mercury dime featured a portrait of Liberty wearing a winged cap, while the Standing Liberty quarter depicted Liberty holding a shield and an olive branch. These designs were well-received and are still highly regarded by collectors today.
In 1932, the United States Mint introduced a new design for the quarter, featuring the profile of George Washington on the obverse and an eagle on the reverse. This design, known as the Washington quarter, is still in use today.
POST World War II
During World War II, there was a shortage of copper, so the United States Mint changed the composition of the dime and quarter to 35% silver and 56% copper. This composition was used for several years, until 1965, when the United States Mint began minting dimes and quarters made entirely of copper-nickel.
Today, silver dimes and quarters are highly valued by collectors and investors for their historical significance and precious metal content. Many of the earlier designs, such as the Mercury dime and Standing Liberty quarter, are considered to be some of the most beautiful coins ever produced by the United States Mint.
