1976 3-Piece Silver Proof Sets

In 1976, the United States was celebrating 200 years as an independent nation. As part of those bicentennial celebrations, the United States Mint released a special 3-Piece Silver Proof Set.

Included in the set were a Proof Eisenhower Dollar, a Proof Kennedy Half Dollar and a Proof Washington Quarter — all struck from 40% silver. The bicentennial coins (including the standard circulating versions) also featured new reverse designs. Shown on the dollar coin was a Liberty Bell super-imposed over an image of the moon, the half dollar coin showed an image of Independence Hall and the quarter depicted a colonial drummer.

The three coins of the set were struck in San Francisco and each shipped in separate capsules with a red and blue display case. A red white and blue ribbon further decorated the case.
