Rare Bicentennial Quarter Worth Nearly $50 Million + 3 More Worth Over $150,000 USD

Collecting rare coins can be a thrilling hobby, often leading to surprising discoveries and significant financial rewards. 

What makes it so extraordinary? One particular Bicentennial Quarter has recently been valued at nearly $50 million, capturing the attention of collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.  

The Bicentennial Quarter was issued by the United States Mint to commemorate the 200th anniversary of American independence in 1976.  

The obverse side retains the familiar portrait of George Washington, but with the dual date "1776-1976."

These quarters were minted in large quantities and circulated widely, making them a common sight in pockets and cash registers across the nation. 

However, as with many coins, certain variations and minting errors can dramatically increase their value. 

This $20 gold coin, designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, was never officially circulated due to the Gold Reserve Act of 1934, which led to the melting of nearly all copies.
