In 1976, the United States celebrated the bi-centennial of gaining freedom from…. the US! Yes, it was over two hundred years ago that the two nations split, fiscally but not emotionally. The US Mint made new designs for the 25c, 50c and $1 coins. We knew we had some of the 1976 Quarters or 25c pieces in Proof, the only problem was finding them? Well, 4-5 years later, here they are. We never lose anything, but we do misplace the odd coin or two. You have a drummer beating his drum with a flame in a circle behind. It is a one year design, Choice Proof coins, struck in cupronickel by the US Mint and finally available to you again!
