Over the last hundred years, The United States Treasury has minted a lot of unique coins
Out of all those beautiful coins, The 2020 BAT Quarter, also known as the American Samoa National Park Quarter, is possibly the most unique coin ever minted in the US.
The coin gets its name from the picture of fruit bats engraved on the reverse of the coin.
The fruit bats can be found in large numbers in American Samoa however their population is on a declining curve.
So, these coins can also act as a remembrance for people to stop hunting these bats.
What is the value of a BAT quarter?
The circulated Bat quarters are usually worth their face value of $0.25.
The coins were minted in the year 2020 so they are not that uncommon or as valuable as coins that were minted in the last century.
However, BAT quarters in uncirculated condition and proof coins can still get a lot of money.
In uncirculated condition the Bat quarters can fetch somewhere from $0.56 for MS 63 grade to $2.28 for MS 65 grade.
However, their valuation also depends on the mint they were minted. The grading scale goes up to 70.
So, if you have an uncirculated BAT quarter that has been graded over 65 then you will easily be able to get over $2.28 for it.

As already mentioned, the Bat quarter in circulated condition is worth its face value of $0.25.
