The silver content does help the price, but the sheer number of them that were made to celebrate the Bicentennial doesn't make them particularly valuable. They're neat commemorative keepsakes, though. I often acquire Bicentennial coinage if I can get them below bid. Collecting them won't make me rich by any stretch, but having multiple ancestors who fought for this country in 1776 makes this stuff interesting.

So why did some of these come in the red envelope, and others in this package?

Wow. I have to get myself one of those. Anyways, to answer your question shadz: They are all S mint marks, but these are silver and not clad.
