You did great! Come here and get your prize! A shiny quarter!
— Baldi

The Quarter is an item the protagonist can obtain after successfully completing Baldi's first three math problems from the beginning of Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning, and obtaining the first notebook.

The Quarter can also be found in the hallways and one of the Faculty Rooms.


It's a shiny grey coin with a face on it (George Washington), appearing to be identical to a U.S. quarter.
