But dad said these coins would pay for college

High mintage 1976 US bicentennial coins are easy to find with value seen mostly in high grade varieties.  When a customer comes in to NwPlaza Coins with a hoard of these common coins in circulated condition, they’re often disappointed when shown the numbers.  Our goal is to make you an educated seller by providing you with information whether you choose to sell to us or another buyer.  When we talk about collectible coins and those of value, there are three important variables to keep in mind:  Rarity (mintage), condition and desirability.  Notice we didn’t mention the age of a coin which is seldom a factor when determining value.

The change in design on the reverse of the 1976 bicentennial coins resulted in an increased public interest in holding on to these high mintage coins.  In circulated condition you can expect the copper-nickel varieties to be worth face value.
