Hello. There were some special "40% silver" 1976 coins that were issued for the bicentennial, but since you don't mention silver, I'm going to assume that you're asking about the basic 1976 coins. As you may know, there are various grades of uncirculated, "mint" (e.g., MS60 through MS70) depending on just how perfect the coin is. If you're talking about a very high grade 1976 coin (MS65 & up), it could sell for quite a bit: An MS65 1976 quarter recently sold on eBay for $5.50. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3046111834&category=39463 An MS65 1976 dollar coin recently sold on eBay for $9.95. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3046992698&category=11981 Ecoinprices.com will give you an idea of values of very high grade coins (MS65 & up) Quarters: http://www.ecoinprices.com/washington-quarters-1965-1998.htm Half dollars: http://www.ecoinprices.com/kennedy-half-dollars.htm Dollars: http://www.ecoinprices.com/ike-dollars.htm ----------- If you're talking about lower-grade, "brilliant uncirculated" coins (e.g., MS60), such coins sell for quite a bit less. 1976 Washington Quarter BU (brilliant uncirculated) $0.75. http://www.greatlakescoin.com/WashingtonQuarters1965to1998.htm 1976 KENNEDY BU $1.10 http://www.coinwebstore.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=845 1976 JFK Half BU $1.25 http://www.greatlakescoin.com/JFKHalfDollars.htm 1976 Eisenhower Dollars $3.95 - $5.95. http://www.greatlakescoin.com/EisenhowerDollars.htm A set of mint, uncirculated 1976 coins sells for $16. (A bicentennial Eisenhower dollar, a bicentennial Kennedy half dollar, a bicentennial Washington quarter, a 1976 Roosevelt dime, a 1976 Jefferson nickel, and a 1976 Lincoln penny). http://www.rubylane.com/shops/autumndaz/item/CN00020?froogle=1 ----------------- resources on coin grading: Numerical Grades http://www.coincentric.com/Numerical%20Grading.htm "Determining the Grade of a Coin" http://coins.about.com/library/weekly/aa050400.htm "Grading Coins" http://www.acoin.com/grading.htm search strategy: uncirculated, quarter, 1976, ms65, jfk, 1976 ms65, dollar, 1976 I hope this helps.

Here is some information on some US Coins that have value. One of my favorite online shops for US Coins, Morgan dollars, Peace Dollars, Mercury Dimes, Buffalo Nickels, and Walking Liberty Half Dollars is www.pccoins.com Specializes in US Certified Coins: Morgan Silver Dollars, Peace Silver Dollars, Buffalo Nickels, Mercury Dimes, and Walking Liberty half-dollars. All coins listed have digital pictures and accurate descriptions so that you as a coin collector can make an informed decision. All Certified coins have been graded by 3rd party grading companies such as NGC or PCGS that have graded the inventory of Morgan Silver Dollar, Peace Silver Dollars, Buffalo Nickels, Mercury Dimes, and Walking Liberty half dollar. With in this site you can also find US coin links to informational services, clubs and organizations such as ANA (American Numismatist Association, FUN (Florida United Numismatist), PCGS (Processional Coin Grading Company), and NGC (Numismatist Guaranty Company). The most popular of the US coins is the Morgan Silver Dollar, which was first, minted in 1879 and continued until 1921. The Carson City Silver Dollars, which came from that famous mint used to get rid of some of the excess silver produced in the West. Next, rising in popularity is the Buffalo Nickels issued from 1913 to 1938 and also called Indian head nickels. Peace dollars were the last silver dollar from 1921 to 1935. The Peace Dollar was minted to honor WWI. Mercury Dimes minted from 1916 to 1945 contains 90% silver. It is often said that if the mercury dime were the size of the silver dollar it would be the most popular minted coin. Walking Liberty half-dollar minted from 1916 ? 1947 contain 90% silver which are commonly referred to as ?Walkers.? Well that just a little history of US Coins. Thanks
