Look For These In Your Pocket Change: Bicentennial Coins

bicentennial-coins-dollar-photo-by-mickey-glitter.jpg Bicentennial coins are popular with coin collectors — especially those who rely on pocket change to find their coin treasures.

The Bicentennial — the 200th birthday of the United States — was celebrated in 1976 with special commemorative designs on the quarter, half-dollar, and dollar coin.

While worn bicentennial coins are worth only face value, they can still be fun to find in circulation.

Here are some Bicentennial coin fun facts:

  • Bicentennial coins are dual-dated 1776-1976.
  • Bicentennial coins were made during 1975 and 1976.
  • There are no United States quarters, half-dollars, or dollar coins dated 1975.
  • Well over 2 billion Bicentennial coins were made for circulation, including all 1776-1976 dated quarters, half-dollars, and dollar coins.

My love for coins and numismatics began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I've also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, and living green with others.
