To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 1976, the U.S. Mint issued a set of three one-time-only commemorative coins: Quarter, Half Dollar, and Dollar. These were the first circulating commemorative coins in U.S. history. The 1976 bicentennial coins have been out of issue and unavailable from the U.S. Mint for over 35 years.This complete set includes all three coins in original Uncirculated condition, so they are just as fresh and beautiful as the day they were struck by the U.S. Mint over 35 years ago. The obverse of each coin is similar the standard coin, but with the dual bicentennial dates “1776-1976.” The reverse of each coin was a special bicentennial design that can never be used again.
