Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Scrooge's 1916 Quarter is a coin owned by Scrooge McDuck.


Scrooge's 1916 Quarter was once an ordinary 1916 quarter, until Scrooge bought it from its original owner and sunk it, along with almost every other 1916 quarter in the world, into the sea, so as to rocket the worth of the one 1916 quarter which he had not sunk to ten skyrillion dollars, making it the rarest and most valuable coin in the world.

Unfortunately for Scrooge, the one coin he had kept was lost, and eventually flattened by a steamroller, rendering it worthless. Scrooge was thus forced to journey to the bottom of the sea and retrieve another 1916 quarter. He succeeded at dredging up this quarter, although not without considerable effort, however, upon his return to the land, he found that it was of no use to him, as it had become so valuable that he was the only man in the world who could afford to buy him. Defeated, Scrooge stashed the Quarter in his collection of treasures and artifacts, where it was stored in a glass case with a sign noting that it was still for sale.

Behind the scenes

Scrooge's 1916 Quarter was a major plot element of Secret of Atlantis. It later made several cameo appearances in other stories, starting with The Son of the Sun.
