Full Answer

The state quarters collection was introduced in 1999, and five new states were introduced each year, until all 50 states were represented in 2009. State quarter collections are available from coin shops and many private sellers through sites, such as Amazon and eBay, but the complete sets are generally sold for much more than the face value of the quarters. The only way to obtain them at face value is to look for them when receiving change, inquire at banks and credit unions and set up trades of duplicates with other collectors.

    What are some valuable quarters?

    A:

    Many U.S. quarters carry a premium over their face value because of their silver content. Among them are Washington quarters minted before 1964. Other valuable quarters include older quarters, such as the Barber quarter, minted between 1892 and 1916, and the Standing Liberty quarter, produced between 1916 and 1930. A valuable recent quarter is the special Bicentennial quarter minted from 40 percent silver.

  • Q:

    Are pre-1964 quarters rare?

    A:

    Most pre-1964 quarters in circulation are not very rare unless they date to before 1932. Those produced between 1932 and 1964, often called Washington quarters, contain silver. They are therefore worth more than their face value. As of 2014, most quarters dated between 1932 and 1964 are worth $3.70.
