The Washington Quarter was first minted in 1993, and the P Mint is home to this popular issue. The 1993 quarters are legal tender coins that have a value of $0.25. The coins were minted in high quantities for general circulation, making them less valuable as collectibles. The metal in these coins is primarily copper, but they also contain nickel and silver. Mint marks are found on the obverse side of each coin.
The reverse of the coin displays a portrait of the American eagle perched on a bundle of arrows. A legend stating UNITED STATES OF AMERICA appears below the eagle. The value and words QUARTET DOLLAR are enclosed within the image of the eagle. The 1993 quarter p features the same specifications as the pre-1965 quarters, including a weight of 6.25 grams of 90% silver.
