This is the second coin in the series commemorating the coins minted during the Renaissance in American coinage called for by President Theodore Roosevelt. Though the original Standing Liberty Quarter was struck in Silver, it is now celebrated in .9999 fine Gold giving great detail to its timeless design. The original Standing Liberty quarter was struck from 1916 to 1930. The Standing Liberty was struck at the Philadelphia Mint during this time period except in 1922, when no quarters were struck at any mint in the United States.
This beautiful coin will have a circulation strike finish and a reeded edge. The Gold Standing Liberty is the second of three coins the U.S. Mint will release this year to celebrate popular designs introduced 100 years ago.
