Nobody saw this coin coming—it would become a numismatic triumph and an unanticipated gem treasure worth more than $750,000. 

The Bicentennial Quarter is extremely valuable due in large part to its rarity.

The rarity of these quarters is heavily dependent on factors like minting mistakes, mint markings, and how mint-perfect they are. 

Condition plays a major role in determining a Bicentennial Quarter's worth. 

For individuals who want to own a perfect piece of American history, the hunt for gem-quality coins has become an intense passion.  

At auctions and among collectors, coins that are preserved in a mint or almost mint condition command a premium price.
