A rare bicentennial quarter valued at around $49 million USD, and nine other pieces at over $799,999 in gems  

Coins hold stories of nations, epochs, and cultures, and occasionally, they also hold immense value.  

The Bicentennial Quarter in question, minted in 1976 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of American independence, is a variant with a unique error.  

Numismatic experts identify this coin by its distinct feature: the absence of the customary mint mark denoting its origin. 

Minted in Philadelphia, this quarter should bear the letter "P" beneath the date, but this particular specimen lacks it, rendering it a rarity among rarities.
