If you’re looking for a new hobby, coin collecting can be very rewarding. Whether you are simply looking for rare and unique coins or investing in rare collectible coins, the thrill is often in the hunt. One of the fun things about looking for collectible coins in circulation is that your opportunities of stumbling across a valuable coin rise. Take a look at some valuable coins currently in circulation and recent prices of coins sold by Common Cents.
You might be shocked to see the range of value that exists between different types of coins. Many coins sold by Common Cents range from $20 to more than $1,000. The most valuable coin we have currently in stock is the 1668 NGC MS-62 1/16 Speciedaler Gluckstadt Denmark coin, priced at $2,000.
1982 No Mint Mark Roosevelt Dime
All U.S. coins are printed with Mint letters indicating where the coin is made. In 1982, however, the Philadelphia Mint forgot to mark their Roosevelt dimes. Although it’s undocumented how many were produced, 10,000 were found in Sandusky, Ohio. Currently, a Roosevelt dime without a mint is worth roughly $300.
2004 Wisconsin State Quarter With Extra Leaf
In recent history, one of the lower value series of coins that has risen in popularity among collectors is the state quarters series. One, in particular, is much more valuable than the rest. Millions of the 2004 Wisconsin state quarters were created, however, thousands were marked with an extra leaf to the husk of corn. If the coin is in good shape, it can potentially be sold for up to $1,499.
1943 Lincoln Head Copper Penny
In 1943 copper was needed for the war effort, so the U.S. Mint decided to create pennies out of steel with a coat of zinc for shine. However, apparently, someone missed the memo and accidentally made a copper batch as well. Very few left the facility, but if you stumble across one hang onto it! The copper pennies made at this time now go for up to $10,000! As with all coins, however, be certain you purchase from a reputable numismatic like Common Cents Coins + Collectibles because many fakes exist.
