When the beautiful Standing Liberty quarter was introduced in 1916, the First World War was already raging in Europe. The new quarter design reflected the mood and desire of the country at the time. Liberty stands proudly at a gateway, bearing a shield with her left arm and an olive branch in her right hand - symbolizing America`s readiness to defend itself, but also its desire for peace. The reverse depicts a proud American eagle in flight. Get the 1927 Standing Liberty quarter today.
