Coin collecting is often a hobby that people start when they are children, but coins can be valuable collectibles. There are a number of rare coins from the United States that are worth up to $10,000 or more.
1943 copper Lincoln penny is one of the most sought-after coins—about 40 have been found. That year, the US Mint switched to making pennies from zinc-coated steel instead of 95% copper/5% zinc and tin, but by mistake some copper pennies still were made, and those may be worth $10,000 to $100,000, or even $1 million in pristine condition. Helpful: Hold a magnet up to your 1943 pennies. If any aren’t attracted, you may have a very valuable find.
