George Quarter Keychain
- Hand-crafted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
- Sterling silver cast
- Gift boxed
This handsome keychain is made from a sterling silver cast of a Washington quarter dollar coin. It is a striking piece, instantly recognizable as our number one President, and would make a wonderful gift, or a special keepsake for yourself!
The Washington quarter was introduced into circulation in 1932 in commemoration of the bicentennial of the birth of the United States’ first President. It permanently replaced the standing Liberty quarter. The Washington quarter was struck in silver until 1964 when the rising price of the precious metal created a coin shortage, as quarters and half dollars were being hoarded. Coins struck after 1964 contained no silver.
