There were about 11,000,000 40% silver clad mint state bi-centennial quarters and about 4,000,000 40% silver proof bi-centennial quarters that were struck for collectors at the San Francisco Mint with the dates 1776-1976. These coins were part of either a proof or mint set consisting of a 40% silver quarter, half dollar and dollar. The United States produced 90% silver coins (dimes, quarters and half dollars) for circulation before 1965.
