1832 QUARTER EAGLE
 
1832 Quarter Eagle - The 1832 quarter eagle was made from a single die pair using a new obverse with a new head punch, which continued until 1834. The 1832 is the final quarter eagle struck at the first United States Mint building in Philadelphia. In January of 1833 the new building opened. The mintage figures for 1832 show that 4,400 quarter eagles were made. Today about 130 coins survive, about 3% of the original mintage. Like the previous dates in the series, these were not saved and heavily melted for bullion.

The 1832 quarter eagles were made in higher relief than the 1829, 30, and 31 issues. Because of the higher relief, the coins of this date are subjected to poorer strikes and more rapid wear.

Proofs of this date are much rarer than those of the first three years with only two or three known to exist.
