World's Columbian Exposition - Isabella Quarter Dollar. This is a choice BU coin that has a exceptional strike, preservation, and complete luster! A real gem that should grade MS 65+. Much better in hand than the photo.
The 1893 Isabella Quarter holds an important place among early commemorative coins of the United States. It represents the first legal tender U.S. coin to depict an actual woman, as opposed to the allegorical Liberty. Additionally, it was the first to depict a foreign monarch and the first and only commemorative quarter dollar. The obverse design of the Isabella Quarter features a left facing portrait of Queen Isabella of Spain who had sponsored Columbus’s voyages to the New World. The reverse design represents women’s industry with a depiction of a female holding a distaff and spindle.
