Comments

The American Revolution began in 1776. The 200th anniversary of this event in 1976, a.k.a. the American Bicentennial, was widely celebrated. All quarter dollars, half dollars, and dollars were struck with a special obverse for that year. These were the first of America's "modern" circulating commemoratives, and currently also the only ones not to be part of a long multi-year series.
