There are no 1975 United States quarters because of this commemorative piece.
Years in planning the U.S.A. bicentennial celebrations was a big deal. Even recently there were fire hydrants around my area still painted red, white, and blue for the occasion. In 1973 the mint announced that the quarter, half dollar, and dollar coins will be designed by citizen artists via a $5,000 contest. Eventually three designs were chosen and plans to cancel the same three 1975 coins, make silver versions, and issue a new two dollar bill became reality.
|Victory torch encircled by 13 stars and a colonial drummer along with the typical mandated writing. JLA under the left arm are the initials of Jack L. Ahr the winning designer, not Justice League of America.|
|Normal obverse except for the dual date of 1776-1976.|
This quarter was meant to be issued over a two year period with more than 800 million issued. So unfortunately these are not rare and even in high grade they are very common and worth very little.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-Bicentennial / United States
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in G-4
