Unusual Bicentennial Quarter Is Worth Over $20 Million USD and Is Worth Approximately $80 Million  

The Bicentennial quarters, part of a broader series of commemorative coins, were released to honor the American Bicentennial.  

These quarters featured a special reverse design by Jack L. Ahr, depicting a Colonial drummer facing left and a victory torch encircled by 13 stars.  

Unlike the regular quarters, which showcased George Washington on the obverse side, these coins carried the dual date “1776-1976” to mark the significant milestone. 

The narrative of the unusual Bicentennial quarter began when a sharp-eyed collector noticed an anomaly on one of these quarters.

What set this particular coin apart was a series of minting errors and peculiar characteristics that defied standard minting practices. 

These anomalies included an unusually thick planchet, an off-center strike, and double-die obverse and reverse impressions, making it a numismatic marvel. 

Upon discovery, the quarter was subjected to rigorous examination by leading numismatic experts and grading institutions.
