I'd wanted one of these for a while and picked one up. Decided to put it into the permanent collection so I sent it to PCGS to be slabbed!

Hope you enjoy!

It's a Square Quarter or Squared Quarter. It was made in the early 80's by an artist and computer engineer named Andor Orand. If you google 1984 square quarter you'll find his site. He has a lot of info on them and the why behind it etc. It is also one of if not the first coin designed with a computer. He used a program to square the circle so to speak. I just thought it was cool!

Correct. It's a trueview. It's been reduced to the maximum allowable forum size however.

So as any type A collector, I did a bunch of research about these. Now that I am back at the computer vs a phone, here is all the info I have on these. I corresponded with the artist about these extensively. He was very gracious and even sent a couple gifts with the order!

X#301 CuNiZn Nickel Silver, Mintage 330. These were not sold but made to give away at shows etc as promotional items. 0 Certified

X#301a 1/4 Ounce .999 Silver, Mintage 1310. This is what the author calls the "REAL" Squared Quarter. 7/8" x 7/8". All squared quarters were the same size except the thickness varied depending on the weight he was going for.
5 PCGS Certified
1 PR69DCAM Cert # Unknown
1 PR68DCAM 34265334
3 PR67DCAM 85738732, 83780399, 37651095

X#301b 1/2 Ounce .999 Silver, Mintage 602. Andor Orand considers this the medal or half dollar option. Just a thicker quarter to allow double the weight.
6 PCGS Certified, NONE CAM or DCAM
1 PR67 34874304
3 PR66 34265335, 83780400, 33797476
1 PR65 81782156
1 PR63 33797477

X#301c Bronze, Mintage 15. Zero certified.

X#301d 1/3 Ounce .999 Gold, Mintage 12. Zero Certified.

X#301e Brass, Mintage Unknown. Zero Certified.

Hope this helps! I was not able to find any that were NGC certified, but I am not positive. For anyone interested, contact the artist directly. He still has a couple available. I have no affiliation with him other than buying this from him. The ones on auction sites are over 10x his direct price. Plus, he's very nice and easy to deal with!
