Coins of 1890 ~ Official Thread

1890 was the dawn of a new era. It saw the last of the Indian Wars and with the 1890 census, the closing of the western frontier. Idaho and Wyoming are admitted as the 43rd and 44th states and America was transitioning into a global industrial power.

The coinage of 1890 was the last year before New Orleans and San Francisco started coining minor silver in larger numbers and the 1890 Philadelphia quarter is the only quarter issued that year.
