As commerce slowed to a snail's pace during the height of the Great Depression, the U.S. Mint dramatically decreased the number of coins it produced. As a result, only two denominations were struck for circulation in 1932! With this historic set, you'll own:
- 1932 Lincoln Wheat cent – Featuring the lowest mintage of the Philadelphia Mint Lincoln Wheat cents, this was one of only two denominations issued for circulation in 1932. It was struck during these hard times as part of a project designed to keep mint workers employed.
- 1932 Washington quarter – Struck in 90% silver, this first-year-of-issue coin commemorated the 200th anniversary of George Washington's birth. Fewer Washington quarters were minted in 1932 than any other year!
Both coins in your set were struck at the Philadelphia Mint, and still show nice detail after more than 80 years. Comes presented in a handsome case, perfect for giving or displaying.
