Buy 1964-D U.S. Washington Quarter

The 1964 quarter is the last U.S. quarter and U.S. coin struck in 90% silver. This historical quarter ended a 168-year tradition of U.S. quarters being struck in 90% silver. According to the U.S. Mint (2013), the first U.S. quarter was struck in 1896.

High demand for silver made the 1964 quarter the last year U.S. coins were struck in silver. 1964 was a historical date in U.S. coin history because coins previously made of silver now contained copper and nickel.

Get a piece of history with a 1964-D quarter, minted in Denver.
