The 80 Million Bicentennial Quarter: This Coin Will Change Your Life

One such coin is the 80 million Bicentennial Quarter, a symbol of American heritage and a prized possession for collectors.  

This coin, minted to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the United States' independence, has a story that might just change your life if you're lucky enough to find one in your pocket change. 

The Bicentennial Quarter was issued in 1975 and 1976 to mark the United States' 200th birthday.  

Unlike the regular Washington quarters, this special edition features a unique reverse design.

The obverse still bears the familiar profile of George Washington, but the reverse showcases a colonial drummer with a torch encircled by 13 stars, representing the original colonies.  

The inscriptions "1776–1976" and "E Pluribus Unum" further emphasize its commemorative purpose. 

While the $55,000 Bicentennial Quarter is a remarkable find, there are several other versions of this commemorative coin that can fetch up to $1,500 each.
