1821 25C XF45 Certification #19205808, PCGS #5331
The 1821 Quarter has one of the larger mintages of the series, though there is a possibility that some of that mintage belongs to 1820. Even so, the 1821 Quarter is fairly plentiful in most grades and can be found in Mint State with relative ease. There are quite a few, very nice 1821 Quarters. When compiling the PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census, we found at least a dozen MS65 and better examples. Most are attractively toned and some are prooflike (John Jay Pittman bought his 1821 Quarter as a Proof -- it is now in a PCGS MS65 holder). The strike on 1821 Quarters is also better than in the previous year, which is a plus for type collectors.
For those that follow quality, the best 1821 Quarter is a PCGS MS67 that last appeared on the market in 2002 when it set a record price (for the date) of $66,125.
