Valuable Coins You Probably Have in Your Pocket Right Now

If you’ve ever been interested in taking up coin collecting, it may seem daunting at first to find rare and/or valuable coins to take into your possession or to sell. There are so many of them and you probably wouldn’t even know where to begin. But worry not. If you actually dig through your pockets of loose change, you might actually just have a few valuable coins you can start off with. There are many valuable coins out in the world that for you to already have some in your possession isn’t at all entirely unlikely. There are so many, in fact, that there’d be too much to list here. But we’ve listed a few down below that William Youngerman would probably be more than happy to purchase from you.

2000 Sacagawea “Cheerios” Dollar

As part of a promotion to raise awareness for the new golden dollar, Cheerios had inserted Sacagawea dollar coins into every 2000th box of cereal for patrons to collect.  This was performed in the early 2000s and a countless amount of these coins were spreading throughout the US, with only a few actually still be held onto today. The difference between these coins versus regular Sacagawea Dollars is that the “Cheerio” coin actually has a more detailed pattern on the tail of the eagle. These coins can be sold for at least $5,000.

2004 U.S. Wisconsin Extra Leaf Quarter

In late 2004, a coin collector had actually noticed that there was an extra leaf on the ear of corn on a Wisconsin state quarter. Later, it was determined that there were two variations of this coin: One with an “extra high leaf” and one with an “extra low leaf.”

It’s not known why this difference exists, but it’s widely believed that it was a deliberate design alteration. About 8,000 of these coins are believed to exist and you can sell them for at least $3,000.

2008 U.S. Reverse of 2007 Silver Eagle Dollar

What makes this coin unique is that a production error was made unto the coin and it wasn’t discovered until after 45,000 of them were produced. Most of these 2008 coins were stuck with the “pre-2008 design”; the reason why these coins are valuable. What distinguishes these coins from the other design is the missing serif on the lower right side of the U. If you bargain a good price on these, you can be lucky enough to sell these at just under $3,000.

1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar

This is actually the first dollar coin issued by the US federal government and the size and weight of it was based on the Spanish dollar. This coin was popular in trade throughout the Americas. It’s not very often that you come across a coin this old and in almost perfect condition (in fact, you may never find it in your pocket) but if you do happen to have it, you can sell this coin for a very valuable price.

2007 U.S. Missing Edge Lettering Presidential Dollar

Also comically known as the “godless dollar”, these coins are deemed valuable because they were accidentally produced without the edge inscription “In God We Trust.” Although millions of these coins were produced, they only seem to appear from Philadelphia. Out of all the coins listed in this blog, this is the least valuable. But you can still sell them at a hefty amount of $50 each.
