There Are Still Eight Rare Dimes and a Rare Bicentennial Quarter in Circulation, Both Worth $72 Million. 

These extraordinary coins trace their origin to a series of minting errors and historical anomalies, rendering them exceedingly rare and immensely valuable.  

Despite their remarkable worth, they continue to circulate alongside ordinary currency, evading detection for decades. 

Among the most coveted of these rarities are the eight dimes, each bearing a unique set of characteristics that distinguish them from their common counterparts.  

Minted in various years spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these dimes exhibit striking anomalies, such as irregularities in the minting process, die variations, and distinctive markings.
