Rare Bicentennial Quarter Worth Nearly $40 Million: 5 More Worth Over $15 Million USD

Rare coins combine history and value intriguingly. The rare $40 million Bicentennial Quarter is one of these treasures. Rare, historical, or condition coins can be worth this much. This listicle explains why the Bicentennial Quarter and five other rare quarters worth over $15 million are valuable.

1. $40 Million Bicentennial Quarter

The 1976 Bicentennial Quarter, commemorating America's 200th anniversary, is rarely worth more than face value. A rare quarter with minting errors and historical significance is worth nearly $40 million. This coin was struck on a 90% silver planchet instead of copper-nickel. Perfect condition and being one of the few known examples of this error make it rare.

2. 1794 Flowing Hair Quarter

The 1794 Flowing Hair Quarter is numismatic legend worth over $15 million. As one of the first US quarters, its historical significance is unmatched. Lady Liberty with flowing hair and an eagle are depicted on the coin. The limited number minted and the few that have survived in good condition for over two centuries make it rare.

3. 823/2 Overdate Quarter

The 1823/2 Overdate Quarter also exceeded $15 million. This coin is a numismatic marvel because the overdate error stamped a ‘3’ over a ‘2’. Early U.S. Mint errors were common due to handcrafted coin dies. This rare, high-grade quarter is one of collectors' most sought-after coins.

4. 1838 Proof Liberty Seated Quarter

The 1838 Proof Liberty Seated Quarter, worth over $15 million, showcases early American coinage. This quarter is from a rare proof coin series from that era. A classic motif, Lady Liberty sits on a rock. The coin's proof condition indicates it was struck for collectors rather than circulation, increasing its rarity.

5. 1870-S Liberty Seated Quarter

The rare 1870-S Liberty Seated Quarter is worth over $15 million. Since only a few were minted in San Francisco and even fewer have survived, this coin is noteworthy. It is rare because it was created for a special set of coins rather than for public circulation.

6. 1901S Barber Quarter

The $15.5 million 1901-S Barber Quarter concludes our list. Charles E. Barber designed this Barber Quarter series rarity. Due to its low mintage and few high-grade examples, the 1901-S variant is rare.
