An uncommon bicentennial quarter valued at about $60 million: Three more, each valued at more than $20 million USD, are still in use. 

What makes these coins so exceptional, and how have they managed to stay hidden in plain sight for so long? 

The Bicentennial quarter, minted in 1976 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the United States, bears a unique design featuring a colonial drummer on its reverse side.  

While millions were minted, a few rare specimens stand out due to minting errors or unusual characteristics.

These quirks, often unnoticed by the casual observer, can catapult a humble quarter into the realm of numismatic legend. 

The recent buzz in the numismatic world stems from the sale of a Bicentennial quarter for nearly $60 million, making it one of the most valuable coins ever sold.  

This particular quarter, minted in Denver, features a striking misalignment of the obverse and reverse designs, known as a "double die" error.  

Such errors are exceedingly rare and highly sought after by collectors, driving prices to astronomical heights.
