I am a sports card collector and gooing through a box I have I run across these. I have no idea when or where I got them. Looks to be 1976. Can anyone give me any info or value? Thanks!

    Hello, these were commonly saved when they first came out and are very common. They make great souvineers of the bicentennial but aren’t worth very much.

    Mr Spud is correct. Memories for sure but not valuable. That said…
    Welcome and good question. We get some interesting stuff here but not only a good question but nice photos.
    Thanks 🙏

    I set like this- lightly circulated and perhaps cleaned- would sell for about $3.00 on eBay. Minus the auction fees and PayPal fee plus shipping you would be received a bit less than face value.
    I'd keep the set and give it to a young relative.

    The plastic holder would have been purchased for about a quarter or fifty-cents and the coins would have been plucked from circulation and the set would be put together by a hobbyist back in the day. It is essentially worth face value, but still looks cool to most of us.

    @johnnyscollectables... Welcome aboard. Your coins are a circulated set of the bicentennial. No significant numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    Everything seems to be only worth face value, though that profile picture seems familiar… ;)

    they all have little D's meaning they were minted in Denver. The 1976 on the cent, nickel and dime mean that is the year minted. The quarters, halves and dollars could have been either 1975 or 1976.

    The Ike dollar may be worth more than face value depending on the grade. However, not worth having PCGS grade it.


  • Thanks everyone for all the info.
