The history of the Standing Liberty Quarter
This Standing Liberty 1/4 oz Silver round celebrates the famous vintage Standing Liberty quarter coin, which the U.S. minted from 1916 to 1930. The modern Standing Liberty quarter round shows the revised design of sculptor Herman Atkins MacNeil, who added a armored vest to the formerly bare chest of Lady Liberty. Fractional Silver rounds do not have a date on them, but the original Standing Liberty coin does and had its design modified in 1925 because the year was wearing away too easily. These Silver rounds are based on the past design and help keep alive the history of American coinage.
Why invest in fractional Silver rounds?
A 1/4 oz Silver round looks like the pre-1965 coins that are popular among Silver collectors, but Silver rounds offer several advantages over vintage coins. The Standing Liberty quarter round, unlike the actual Standing Liberty quarter, has its weight and purity stamped on it, making for easier buying and selling these modern Silver rounds. Silver rounds also sell for a lower premium over the Silver spot price than legal tender coins that have numismatic collector value, making the Silver rounds more economical to buy. Fractional Silver rounds also make a good entry point for investing in Silver because you can start today with just a few dollars.
