Bicentennial Quarter: Over $90 Million Worth of Items Are Still in Use 

In recent years, these quarters have gained attention not only for their patriotic design but also for their potential value in the collector's market.  

Despite being minted over four decades ago, Bicentennial Quarters have managed to retain their allure, with some individual coins fetching astonishing sums. 

The Bicentennial Quarter was born out of a nationwide celebration of America's 200th birthday in 1976.

To mark this significant milestone, the United States Mint issued a special series of coins, including the Bicentennial Quarter.  

Unlike its traditional counterparts, this quarter featured a unique reverse design depicting a colonial drummer and a torch encircled by 13 stars, representing the original thirteen colonies. 

The obverse maintained the familiar image of President George Washington, albeit with a distinctive double date, "1776-1976," commemorating the nation's bicentennial. 

While initially intended for circulation, the Bicentennial Quarter quickly caught the eye of collectors.
