Coins With Hidden Value

1916 Standing Liberty Quarter – up to $2,800



The 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter is a notable numismatic piece that marked a departure from the previously used design. Designed by Hermon A. MacNeil, the coin features Lady Liberty standing in a dynamic pose with a raised shield and an olive branch, symbolizing both strength and peace.

The initial version lacked protective chain mail, exposing Liberty’s right breast, which generated controversy and led to a modified design later that year. This modification included adding chain mail to address concerns about modesty.
