George Washington on your lapel would surely inspire you throughout the day. The outline of our number one President has been intricately hand-cut from an antique silver quarter and attached to a nickel backing and post. It is a striking piece, instantly recognizable as our first 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.
