Bicentennial Quarter: Over $80 Million Worth of Items Are Still in Use 

One such example is the Bicentennial Quarter, minted in 1976 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the United States.  

Despite its widespread circulation, a small fraction of these quarters possess unique characteristics that render them immensely valuable. 

Surprisingly, some of these valuable coins, each worth over $80 million, are still in circulation today, prompting collectors and enthusiasts to keep a keen eye on their spare change. 

The Bicentennial Quarter features a distinct design, with a colonial drummer on the reverse side, symbolizing the spirit of independence and patriotism.

While millions of these quarters were minted to meet the demands of commerce, a tiny fraction inadvertently received an extra layer of value due to minting errors or unique die variations. 

Among the most sought-after varieties are those with a doubled die error, where the design elements appear slightly doubled, giving the coin a distinctive and desirable appearance. 

Another prized variation is the "No S" mintmark quarter, where the San Francisco mint neglected to imprint the "S" mintmark, making it exceptionally rare and valuable.
