Comments

The American Revolution began in 1776, and this coin commemorates the 200th anniversary of the U.S.' independence in 1976 (also known as the American Bicentennial), a widely celebrated event. All quarter dollars, half dollars, and dollars were struck with a special obverse for during 1975 and 1976, and were the first of America's "modern" circulating commemoratives, and are currently also the only circulating commemoratives to not to be part of a long multi-year series, then followed by the state quarters.
