Rare Bicentennial Quarter Worth Nearly $45 Million USD: 4 More Worth Over $20,000

Some of the hidden gems and surprises you might find in the coin collecting world are worth modest fortunes. The Bicentennial Quarter is particularly noteworthy, there is an extremely rare example that is worth about $45 million USD.   

Not only will this listicle go into the history, rarity, and reasoning for the high values of this unique quarter, but it will also study four additional quarters, each valued at over $20,000.  

To commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of the United States' Declaration of Independence, the Bicentennial Quarter was struck in 1976 and ranks first on our list. A singular minting mistake is the reason why a particular Bicentennial Quarter is worth so much.   

A double strike, which happens very seldom, occurs when the minting press strikes the coin twice, causing the pictures to overlap, and this mistake caused it. The historical importance of the quarter, together with the extreme rarity of this blunder, causes its value to soar to an astounding $45 million.   

Any collector would be lucky to own the 1932-D Washington Quarter, which is worth more than $20,000. The Washington design, which was meant to be a special issue for only one year but became the norm for all quarters, is introduced with this quarter.   

Due to their small mint run, these coins are even more desirable due to the 'D' mint mark, which denotes the Denver Mint. Because of its rarity, exceptional condition, and historical importance, it is worth a lot of money.  

The 1932-S Washington Quarter, struck in San Francisco and similar to its Denver equivalent, is also a highly sought-after coin, often selling for more than $20,000.   

Being one of the most scarce Washington Quarters, its value is based on its small mintage. Perfect examples of this quarter are highly sought for by collectors, who pay top dollar for them.
