Best Answer

No. All circulating quarters dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel. The only silver quarters minted since 1965 were special coins struck for sale to collectors: 40% silver Bicentennial quarters minted in 1975 and 1976, and "Prestige" proofs minted 1992-present.

Sorry, the last year for a 90% silver quarter was 1964. No 1965 to date quarters have any silver except some special collectors coins (starting in 1975) that were not released into circulation.
