Bicentennial Quarter 1776-1976

Do you have a bicentennial and want to know its value? Leave a comment

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
Year: 1976
Mintage: 809,784,016
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in G-4

Do you have a coin from the bicentennial and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Still just $0.25 it will probably stay $0.25 for the next 40 years. so depends on how long your willing to wait then just use it.

Man said...

4 bicentennial gold coins...1779-1976

I think you meant 1776 not 1779.

If these were made by the government and gold-plated by another company they have no extra value.

I have a $100 note hand stamped in Philadelphia on the 200th Anniversary of the signing of the Articles on Confederation.
What would it be worth.
Comes in a plastic screen printed on the front passport-like folder with:
1776-1976
America's 200th Birthday
& inside a holder for the note and a printed card describing the significance of the note.

Man said...

1776 George Washington mis printed dollar coin. It has double stamped face and the regular sided print on back.

I would need to see a picture of the coin to see if it is a real error or a fake.

Could be worth hundreds if real.

I have over $1,000 in Bi-centennial Quarters, should I hold on to them or just cash them in. Thank you

Man said...

a 1995 quarter back in change that has smooth edges except in one spot where. it looks like it is worn and is 10 to 15% off center could you tell me what it might be worth and who we should go to?

In Mint State 65 or better they are $5.00 or more.

Anything less than nearly perfect it has no real extra value.

Kayra said...

I have a bicentennial quarter that appears to have silver in it. The colors don't match the copper/nickel of regular quarters. Also, it has the same sound that post 1965 quarters have when put with copper/nickel quarters. Could it possibly be worth more than just 25 cents?

Man said...

bicentennial quarter that appears to have silver in it. The colors don't match the copper/nickel of regular quarters.

Check the mint mark if it is an S then it may be silver.

Also check the edge.

Weigh it with a 0.01 gram scale.

Some silvers were made and some errors also exist.

Just $0.25, the gold plating is too thin to have value and the coin is damaged during plating.
