Rare Bicentennial Quarter Worth Nearly $350,000 USD + 6 More Worth Over $5,000

Minted in 1976 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the United States, this quarter features a unique dual-date of "1776-1976" and a special reverse design by Jack L. Ahr depicting a colonial drummer. 

While millions of these coins were produced for circulation, some rare variants have become highly sought after by collectors, with one recently valued at nearly $350,000 USD. 

Here, we explore this remarkable coin and six other Bicentennial quarters worth over $5,000. 

The crown jewel of Bicentennial quarters is the exceedingly rare variant struck on a silver-clad planchet intended for proof sets.

This coin's rarity stems from an error during production, where a silver-clad blank was mistakenly used in place of the regular copper-nickel planchet.  

These silver-clad quarters are visually distinguishable by their distinctively brighter luster and sharper details compared to standard Bicentennial quarters. 

This grade denotes a coin with extremely sharp strikes, pristine surfaces, and only minor imperfections visible under magnification.
