Nine additional rare bicentennial quarters valued at almost $2 million in gems and nearly $45 million in USD  

This remarkable find has not only reignited interest in coin collecting but also underscores the enduring allure of these small, yet immensely valuable, pieces of history. 

The bicentennial quarters in question are part of a special series minted by the United States in 1976 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the nation's independence.  

Featuring a unique design depicting a colonial drummer and a torch encircled by 13 stars, these coins hold a special place in American numismatic history. 

However, what makes these particular quarters truly exceptional is not just their historical significance but their rarity and astonishing value. 


The discovery of these nine rare bicentennial quarters occurred during a routine coin appraisal at a local estate sale in a small town in the Midwest. 

What sets these quarters apart from the rest is the presence of precious gems embedded within them.  

Each quarter features a meticulously set gemstone, ranging from diamonds to sapphires, enhancing their aesthetic appeal and intrinsic value.
