Description
 
In 1976, for the 1st time in our 200 year history, the US Mint released three special issue coins for circulation ... the Bicentennial Quarter, Half Dollar and Dollar. Each was released with a dual date 1776 - 1976 ( another 1st in our coinage history ) and a special design.

  • Quarter - Colonial drummer facing left with a victory torch encircled by 13 stars
  • Half Dollar - Independence Hall in Philadelphia
  • Dollar - Liberty Bell superimposed on the moon
The Complete Bicentennial Coin Collection ... 18 coins in all!

There were three different types of Bicentennial coinage released by the Mint. The Philadelphia and Denver Mint made each design for circulation. The San Francisco Mint struck a special proof edition ... and as part of the celebration the US Mint released special Silver 3 pc sets in both uncirculated and proof condition. The US Mint also changed the lettering on the dollar ... creating 2 distinct varieties: a flat or low relief ( variety 1 ) and a sharp design ( variety 2 ) (see the diagram using the link below). When you add them all up ... it was a total of 18 coins.

It's been quite a while since I've seen any of these in circulation. Most didn't know they made a the special versions ... and it may be explained by mintage figures ... less than 2% off all bicentennial coins actually struck in silver.

We've assembled them all, each is encapsulated and presented in our coveted collector's display boxes. We've searched the country and none of our competitors have assembled them ALL ... we have found most of them, but they are selling smaller, incomplete sets for more money, this complete 18 coin set is a perfect heirloom for generations to come!
