1998 P Washington Quarter


1998 Quarter Obverse1998 Quarter Reverse

Coin Dealer Insight: 1998 is the last year for the "standard" Washington quarter with the "heavy motto" profile obverse and the bald eagle reverse. In order to change the quarter and to create coins with collectible value, the U.S. Mint had a new series of Washington quarters ready to begin production in 1999. However, some 1.7 billion 1998 Washington quarters were struck between the Denver and Philadelphia mints, easily relegating them to "commonplace" status.

Value: Can usually be found and sold for somewhere between $0.26-$11.00 price dictated by condition, certification, and current demand. Other factors include location, inventory, and urgency of sale.

Estimated Value Based on Scale:

Mint: Philadelphia

Production: 896,268,000 Washington Quarters were minted at the Philadelphia mint in 1998.
