Bicentennial Bonanza: Worth $165,000. $40K in 5 Rare Quarters

This incredible sum is part of a broader Bicentennial Bonanza, a collection of U.S. coins valued at $165,000. 

In 1976, the United States Mint released special edition quarters to commemorate the nation's 200th birthday. 

These quarters featured a unique design different from the usual depiction of George Washington.

Instead, the reverse side showcased a colonial drummer with a torch encircled by 13 stars, symbolizing the original colonies. 

This design was created by Jack L. Ahr, whose artwork was selected through a national competition. 

These quarters were circulated widely, but as with many things, certain versions of these coins have become incredibly rare and valuable over time. 

Proof coins are struck with special dies that give them a sharp, high-quality finish.
