Black Section Separator

Coin collecting, especially rare quarters, has amazing stories and incredible prices. The Bicentennial Quarter stands out for its historical significance and incredible worth.   

This listicle will discuss the approximately $90 million Bicentennial Quarter and five additional quarters worth over $30 million, including their history, rarity, and value. 


The 1976 USA Bicentennial Quarter honours the Declaration of Independence. A rare minting fault makes Bicentennial Quarters expensive. A rare double strike happened when the minting press hit the coin twice, overlapping design details.   

1. The $90 Million Bicentennial Quarter

The 1943 Copper Lincoln Penny is valuable despite not being a quarter. Zinc-coated steel pennies conserved copper for WWII. Some 1942 copper blanks were misused in 1943. 1943 copper pennies sold for almost $30 million due to their rarity and historical significance.  

2. 1943 Copper Lincoln Penny

The first Washington Silver Quarter was struck in 1932 for George Washington's 200th birthday. Few 90% silver quarters were made, hence collectors appreciate them. Denver and San Francisco coins with minuscule ‘D’ and ‘S’ mintmarks are most valuable.  

3. 1932 Washington Silver Quarter

Early US Mint quarters like the 1796 Draped Bust Quarter are remarkable. A mintage of barely over 6,000 makes this quarter rare. Uniquely, the reverse design with a little eagle only lasted two years.   

4. 1796 Draped Bust Quarter

The overdate error on the 1823/2 Capped Bust Quarter, which was struck over an 1822 quarter, is fascinating. The mistake and limited mintage make it one of the rarest and most valuable quarters.   

5. 1823/2 Capped Bust Quarter

Its appealing design and limited mintage make the 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter notable. The 1916 quarters were uncommon since few were made before the 1917 revision. Mint copies of this quarter are worth approximately $30 million due to their beauty and rarity.  

6. 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter

Rare quarters are about money and history. Each quarter, especially the over $90 million Bicentennial Quarter, tells America's history, economy, and culture. Treasures, not currency, their astronomical values reflect rarity, quality, and historical significance.
