Have a question about silver quarters? Here’s the history of how the Washington quarter came to be, and prices for Washington quarters these days.
Bicentennial coin designs appeared on U.S. circulating quarters, half-dollars, and dollar coins in made in 1975 and 1976 to commemorate our nation’s Bicentennial. Hundreds of millions of Bicentennial coins were struck — both in the regular copper-nickel clad composition for circulation and in a 40% silver clad composition for collectors. They remain one of the most popular coins in circulation today. There were also Bicentennial gold & silver coins made in other years to commemorate other historical dates. (Any time we mention a U.S. Bicentennial coin in an article, you'll find it here.)
