An Unusual Bicentennial Quarter Worth Over $40 Million Each and Valuable at Almost $100 Million

The Bicentennial Quarter was minted in 1975 and 1976 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the United States' independence.  

Unlike regular quarters, these coins feature a distinctive reverse design created by Jack L. Ahr, depicting a colonial drummer boy with a torch encircled by thirteen stars. 

The obverse side retained the traditional portrait of George Washington but included the dual date "1776–1976" to mark the bicentennial celebration.

The primary factor contributing to the immense value of these specific Bicentennial Quarters is their rarity and unique characteristics. 

While millions of these quarters were minted for general circulation, a few extraordinarily rare versions have become the centerpiece of collectors' dreams. 

These coins were struck on different metal compositions or with unique dies that were never intended for public release. 

The experimental quarters are distinguished by their impeccable condition and unusual features, which set them apart from the standard issue.
