The Interesting Bicentennial Quarter's History: Over $950,000 in Jewels 

The Bicentennial Quarter was born out of the United States' celebration of its 200th anniversary in 1976.  

In honor of this significant milestone, the U.S. Mint released a special series of coins featuring a unique reverse design depicting a colonial drummer boy on horseback. 

These quarters were minted for circulation in both Philadelphia and Denver, bearing the respective mint marks "P" and "D" on the obverse side. 

At first, the Bicentennial Quarter seemed destined to be just another commemorative coin, circulating through the hands of Americans without much fanfare. 


However, its story took a remarkable turn in 2015 when an anonymous individual discovered something astonishing about one particular quarter. 

The discovery was made in a jar of coins acquired from a bank in search of collectibles.  

The revelation sparked widespread interest and speculation, leading to further examination of similar coins in circulation.
