Rare Coins- How to Fill up Your Bank by Emptying Your Pockets

The amazing thing about rare coins is that there’s only one way they can go- up. It’s not like the age of them can be reversed. And the only thing you have to do is empty your pockets and study your coins! I once was looking through my brother’s change and found an American penny that had the design on the tail side different from the current one. I believe it’s 69 years old. I can sell that penny for at least 5.00! That’s 500 times it’s value! Now if you can get any type of coin that the mint doesn’t make anymore, such as a half-penny from 1699 is worth up to 200 dollars! 40,000 times it actual value! If you have a coin that’s at least 50 years old, hold on to it! If you have a coin that’s at least 100 years old, check up on how much it’s worth. If you have a coin they don’t mint anymore, sell it or hang on to it and pass it through the family. A 318 year old 10 ducat gold coin from Romania was starting at 25,000 dollars. The estimated value? Up to 1,000,000 USD! If only you Romanians had passed your coins on through the generations… But anyways, if you don’t have an old coin, you can always sell a set of quarters or something like that. Just remember, you don’t have to find old coins. They find you.

Interesting…Your article has definitely made me want to go through my change box (and I’m not even a collector). I think I’ll be a little more dilligent about watching my coins from here on, especially ones that are fifty years or older (as you stated).
