George's Circled Teardrops Earrings
- Hand-crafted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
- Sterling silver cast
- Gift boxed
These striking earrings are made from sterling silver casts of a Washington quarter dollar coin. Instantly recognizable as our OG POTUS, they 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.
