Nearly 8 million Barber quarters were minted in 1915, which is a fairly strong number as compared to the mintages of the few previous years. While the 1915-S did see a mintage of less than 1 million, that issue is not considered anything scarcer than a “better date.” The 1915 Philadelphia and Denver issues are decently common and, all around, 1915 is an affordable year for coin collectors looking to pick up well-circulated examples of Barber quarters from the year.

Here’s a breakdown of mintages and values of 1915 Barber quarters:

  • 1915 – 3,480,000; $13

  • 1915-D – 3,694,000; $13

  • 1915-S – 704,000; $16

  • 1915 proof – 450; $925

*Values are for coins in a grade of Good-4, unless otherwise noted.

Perhaps the most noteworthy bit from 1915 regarding Barber quarters was the striking of the final proofs for the series. Proof coinage, which had been produced in small numbers anyway, was retired for all denominations during the mid-1910s, and would not resume until 1936, when the era of the modern proof coins began.

The Barber quarter was designed by U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber and was first produced in 1892. Production of the series would continue until 1916.
