The Standing Liberty Quarter was a coin minted by the United States from 1916 to 1930. It was designed by sculptor Hermon Atkins MacNeil and was introduced to replace the Barber Quarter. The Standing Liberty Quarter features the image of Lady Liberty standing in front of a wall with 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies of the United States. The reverse side features an eagle in flight with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR".

 

The Standing Liberty Quarter is considered a beautiful and iconic design in the history of American coinage. However, it was not without controversy. The original design featured Lady Liberty with a bare breast, which caused outrage and controversy. The design was later modified to show Lady Liberty with a chainmail vest covering her breast. Another controversy was the depiction of the eagle on the reverse side. Many critics felt that the eagle appeared weak and emaciated, leading to the redesign of the eagle in 1925.

 

Despite the controversies, the Standing Liberty Quarter remains a popular coin among collectors and numismatists. Its rarity and beauty make it a sought-after item in the numismatic world. In fact, many coin collectors consider the Standing Liberty Quarter to be one of the most beautiful coins ever produced by the United States Mint. Its place in history and numismatic value continue to make it a prized possession for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
