The Bicentennial Quarter: A Valuable Numismatic Item in Use  

Despite being minted over four decades ago, these quarters continue to capture the fascination of collectors and enthusiasts,

with some specimens reaching astonishing values, exceeding $80 million collectively. What makes these coins so special, and why are they still in circulation?

In 1975 and 1976, the United States Mint commemorated the 200th anniversary of American independence by issuing special quarters bearing unique designs.

The obverse side retains the familiar portrait of President George Washington, albeit with a dual date of 1776-1976 to mark the bicentennial celebration.

What sets the Bicentennial Quarter apart from its regular counterparts is not merely its design but also its scarcity.

While millions were minted, they were produced for only two years, making them relatively scarce compared to other quarters in circulation.

Furthermore, many of these quarters were quickly hoarded by collectors and individuals who recognized their potential value as commemorative coins.
