Full Description

Only 100 coins are featured in NGC’s Greatest U.S. Modern Coins Book. One of these is the 1976 Silver-clad Washington Quarter minted in San Francisco, graded as Mint State 65, and ranked as #65 of 100 on the list. Although most bicentennial Washington quarters were made of copper and nickel. However, some of these coins were specially-minted at the San Francisco Mint and contained 40% silver. Collectors seeking to complete a full set of Washington quarters can acquire this coin now, while it is still available.

Obverse

The obverse design was created by John Flanagan and features a likeness of a bust of Washington sculpted by Jean-Antoine Houdon in 1785. This design was also used on several commemorative coins and medals. Washington faces left, with the word ‘Liberty’ above, the motto “In God We Trust” to the left with the mint mark S to the right of Washington. Below Washington, the year spot is used to show the span covering the existence of the U.S. at that time, shown as ‘1776-1976.’

Reverse

The back of the coin was created by Jack L. Ahr, who won the U.S. Mint’s design contest for the coin. It features a colonial drummer boy. Above and to the left is the torch of freedom surrounded by 13 stars. Also on the reverse are ‘United States of America,’ ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ and ‘Quarter Dollar.’
