There is only one US coin design series in the history of the US Mint named for its designers. The Barber Coinage featured a shared Liberty design on the US dime, quarter, and half-dollar denominations from 1892 to 1916. Created by the 6th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, Charles E. Barber, these coins were popular for a time but eventually replaced by even more popular images. Today, 90% Silver Barber Quarters totaling $1 Face Value are available to you online from JM Bullion.

The birth of the designs in the Barber Coinage actually have roots in the mild public reception for the Morgan Silver Dollar design released in 1878. The public was so underwhelmed by the design of Liberty on the Morgan Silver Dollar that the mint took action within a year by having engravers begin to submit designs for the smaller denominations. However, it would be more than a decade before any change occurred. When it did, the designs eventually came from in-house courtesy of the 6th Chief Engraver of the US Mint.

Liberty will feature on the obverse of all 90% Silver Barber Quarters in this listing. His depiction of Liberty captures her figure in right-profile relief with a crown wreath on her head. The coin features inscriptions of the national motto, 13 stars, and the date mark on this face.
A modified version of the Great Seal of the United States is featured on the reverse of 90% Silver Barber Quarters. This twist on the heraldic eagle offers a cluster of 13 stars above the eagles head with the US national shield on its chest, arrows in one talon, and an olive branch in the other. The nation of issue and face value are inscribed on this side.
