Barber Quarters

The Barber Quarter was inspired by classical Greek and Roman models. This unique coin features a Liberty head complete with cap and wreath on one side of the coin and an American Eagle on the other side of the coin. Above the Liberty head, you will find the famous, "In God We Trust" motto surrounded by six stars to the left and seven stars to the right.
