The Washington Quarter was created to honor the 200th anniversary of the birth of George Washington, the first President of the United States. The design was first released into circulation on August 1st, 1932, and continued unchanged until the Bicentennial Quarter design in 1976. The obverse of the Washington Quarter features a bust of George Washington in profile, facing left. It was designed by John Flanagan and is based on a 1786 bust of Washington sculpted by Jean-Antoine Houdon. The Washington Quarter features the inscription LIBERTY at the top of the coin and IN GOD WE TRUST in smaller type below Washington's chin. The reverse of the Washington Quarter features a bald eagle grasping several arrows in its claws above two olive branches, beneath the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. The reverse was also designed by John Flanagan.
