On Christmas Day in 1776, George Washington and his Continental Army needed a victory to buoy American morale. The Continental Army was facing the greatest military power of the age and bold decisions were required to keep the American Colonists in the war in the early stages. Washington’s answer was as bold as the situation was dire.
Facing the ice-choked Delaware River, Washington commandeered all the boats he could find and transported his 2,400 Continental Army troops across the river under the cover of darkness to launch a surprise attack on the Hessian mercenaries in Trenton, New Jersey. The moment has been captured in countless artistic renderings over the last 245 years, the latest of which is found on new circulation US quarters from the US Mint.
President George Washington’s bust is found on the obverse of each of these 2021 George Washington Quarters. The left-profile portrait found here is John Flanagan’s original 1932 design added to the quarter on the bicentennial of Washington’s birth.
Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, George Washington, is found in the reverse design leading his forces across the Delaware River. Washington is depicted in the foreground with his sword drawing pointing the way forward across the Delaware River from Pennsylvania to Trenton, New Jersey.
These 2021 George Washington Quarter Sets include three circulation 2021 US Quarters. Each one of the quarters has been enhanced by a private mint with a layer of 24-karat gold on both faces of the coin. The coins come in a plastic bag and include a Certificate of Authenticity.
