Sometimes a nickel isn’t worth just 5 cents. Last week, one from 1913 sold for a whopping $4.2 million dollars.
The nickel in question, called the Walton 1913 Liberty Head Nickel, was acquired by GreatCollections auction house and boasts “one of the greatest stories to ever be told in U.S. numismatics,” per a press release.

While I doubt I’ll ever see one of these, I have found silver quarters in my change from time to time. A true pre-1965 quarter is reported to be worth about 4$. And I have sold some one dollar bills with unique serial numbers.
