The Bicentennial Quarter's Enthralling History: Over $750,000 in Jewels 

As part of the festivities, the U.S. Mint released special edition coins, including the Bicentennial Quarter. 

The idea for the Bicentennial Quarter emerged as the nation prepared for its 200th birthday.  

These quarters were minted between 1975 and 1976 and were distinctively marked with the dual date "1776-1976."
