How Much Does a Quarter Weigh in Grams?

A quarter-dollar coin from the United States that was produced in 1964 or later weights 5.670 grammes, or 0.200 ounces. Since the quarter’s initial release in 1796, its weight has changed a little bit.

The first quarters were created in accordance with the Mint Act’s standards in 1792 and weighed 6.74 grammes (0.24 ounces). These coins were released between 1796 and 1838. The coins that came after them were altered to contain more silver and ranged in weight from 6.68 to 6.22 grammes, or 0.23 to 0.22 ounces. Weighting 6.25 grammes or 0.22 ounces, quarters struck between 1892 and 1964 include a range of designs and metal compositions.
