The Barber Quarter

The Barber Quarter, also known as the Liberty Head Quarter, is a series of U.S. quarter-dollar coins minted from 1892 to 1916. This coin series is named after its designer, Charles E. Barber, who was the Chief Engraver of the United States Mint at the time. The Barber Quarter is part of a broader series that includes the dime and half dollar, all sharing similar designs.

Barber’s design features the head of Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap and a laurel wreath on the obverse, with the word “LIBERTY” on a headband and thirteen stars surrounding it. The reverse showcases an eagle with outstretched wings, holding an olive branch and arrows, encircled by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “QUARTER DOLLAR,” along with the motto “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

History

The introduction of the Barber Quarter was part of a broader effort to redesign U.S. coinage starting in the late 1880s. The Mint Act of 1890 allowed the Treasury Department to approve new coin designs without Congress’s permission after 25 years of circulation, leading to the replacement of the Seated Liberty design used since the 1830s.

Barber’s initial designs faced some criticism, and there were several revisions before the final design was approved. Despite the controversies, Barber’s design was selected for its classical simplicity and the ease with which the mint could strike it.

During its time in circulation, it was produced at several U.S. Mint branches, including Philadelphia (no mint mark), Denver (D), San Francisco (S), and New Orleans (O). The Standing Liberty Quarter eventually replaced the Barber Quarter in 1916.

Made of 90% silver and 10% copper, the Barber Quarter contains 0.1788 troy ounces of metal. It holds a significant place in U.S. numismatic history for its design and representation of an era of American coinage. Collectors often seek out these coins for their historical value, the beauty of their design, and the challenges associated with assembling a complete set, especially in higher grades.
