Before we get to some of the more common valuable quarters, let's talk about the most valuable quarter currently in circulation.

According to the coin-collecting site robpaulsenlive.com, the most valuable quarter currently is the 1932 D MS 66 Washington Quarter.

From robpaulsenlive.com -

"The 1932 Washington quarter is one of two dates with mintages under one million, making it the key date and rarest in the series. The Denver mint produced only 436,800 silver specimens, worth $141 to $1,228 in circulated condition."

In mint condition, these quarters have been sold for over $14,000!
