Flashback to 1975-76

with 3 comments

I would like to introduce the coin that started me on a long journey that is far from over.  Born in 1969, I was six when the bicentennial quarter was introduced. It was released in 1975, and had a two year run for the country’s bicentennial itself.  Being from the time when I can still remember silver coinage in circulation, this design really caught my eye as a six year old.  The Colonial drummer designed by Jack L. Ahr had a magical appeal to me at the time.  It sparked a love for all types of coins and the history behind them.  Who spent this coin and what was their story.  I hope to give you a layman’s insight into the coin market, and knowledge you can share with others interested.

  1. The bicentennial coins were great ways to get people interested in collecting. It’s amazing to me how many of these things still show up in rolls. I suppose it has something to do with the # minted, but at the same time I’d think everyone would want one.

  2. Robbie, your website rules. I love it! You have put in a tremendous amount of work and it is paying off. Take it global brother. Get the Chinese on-board! Coltrane just started Kinder this week and he is getting an hour of Chinese language instruction every week. Crazy!
