There are still eight rare dimes and a rare bicentennial quarter worth $72 million each in circulation. 

These coins, far from being tucked away in vaults, remain elusive in the wild, offering a tantalizing prospect for the intrepid treasure hunter or the casual coin collector. 

The story behind these remarkable coins traces back to a unique set of circumstances, blending historical significance with rarity. 

Minted between 1965 and 1970, the eight dimes bear the distinctive mark of the 1970 Denver mint.

These dimes, referred to as the 1970-D Roosevelt Dimes, are exceptionally rare due to the limited number produced before the mint ceased their production, making them highly sought after by collectors.  

Despite diligent efforts to track down these elusive coins, only a handful have been accounted for, leaving the rest shrouded in mystery and speculation. 

Accompanying these elusive dimes is the bicentennial quarter, minted in 1976 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the United States. 

While millions of these quarters were produced, one particular variant stands out—the 1976 bicentennial quarter featuring a unique error.
