Full Description

America’s 200th year as a nation was celebrated the entire year of 1976, with festivals, parties, galas and historical reenactments. It was the nation’s birthday party, and Americans everywhere wanted to be a part of it. The U.S. Mint held a contest in 1975 to find the perfect design for a bicentennial quarter. The response was overwhelming, but Jack L. Ahl emerged as the victor. Produced only at the San Francisco Mint, the 1976 Silver-Clad Washington Quarter was one of the Proof bicentennial quarters intended for collectors. The coin offered here is in PF68 Ultra Cameo condition, as certified by NGC. Ranking number 65 of 100 Greatest American Coins, this 40% silver coin is a must-have for collectors who favor Washington Quarters.

Obverse

The obverse design was created by John Flanagan and features a likeness of a bust of Washington sculpted by Jean-Antoine Houdon in 1785. This design was also used on several commemorative coins and medals. Washington faces left, with the word ‘Liberty’ above, the motto “In God We Trust” to the left with the mint mark S to the right of Washington. Below Washington, the year spot is used to show the span covering the existence of the U.S. at that time, shown as ‘1776-1976.’

Reverse

The back of the coin was created by Jack L. Ahr, who won the U.S. Mint’s design contest for the coin. It features a colonial drummer boy. Above and to the left is the torch of freedom surrounded by 13 stars. Also on the reverse are ‘United States of America,’ ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ and ‘Quarter Dollar.’
