Q:

Whose face is on the quarter?

A:

George Washington's face is on the quarter, according to the United States Mint. His face has been on the obverse of the quarter since 1932, which was the 200th anniversary of his birth.

The first U.S. president's face is shown in a left-facing profile on the quarter, explains Enchanted Learning. The words "United States of America" appear above his image, and the words "quarter dollar" appear below it. To the left of his face is the word "liberty," and to the right appear the words "In God we trust." Just below those words is a mint mark that denotes the mint location at which the coin was produced. "S" stands for San Francisco, "D" stands for Denver and "P" stands for Philadelphia.
