1) 1995 Double Die Penny

“Liberty” and “In God We Trust” look blurry on this coin, because of the double-printed obverse (head side). The same error has happened before in 1969 and 1972. Those coins are way more valuable than this one.


PRICE: $20-$50



2) 1932-64 Silver Quarter

During this period of time, quarters were made from 90% silver and 10% copper. You might confuse them with a pre-state quarter 25-cent piece, because they look a lot like them, but they are worth a lot more if the condition is good.


PRICE: $7-$65



3) 2004 Wisconsin State Quarter With Extra Leaf

Wisconsin state quarter from 2004 is a valuable coin itself – it certainly costs more than 25 cents! But if you own one with the high or low leaf error, you might be in for a treat!

The 50 State Quarters series ran from 1999 until 2008, they all had their own unique designs. Wisconsin’s quarter was released in 2004. It had a cow, a wheel of cheese and a partially husked ear of corn as a design of the reverse.

Some of the coins had an error of having an extra line below the front left leaf, which looked like a separate leaf. As we mentioned, there are two kinds you might find: with high leaf and with low leaf.


PRICE: Up to $300



4) Ben Franklin Half-Dollar 

In 1948, the United States started making a half-dollar coins of Ben Franklin and an eagle. The irony is that Franklin actually opposed making the bald eagle the national bird. He was in favor of wild turkey.

After 16 years, Ben Franklin’s portrait was replaced with John F. Kennedy’s portrait in 1964. The reason was the recent assassination of the president in 1963.


PRICE: $12-$125



5) Presidential Dollar Coin With Lettering Errors 

In 2007, the United States started printing coin versions of dollars featuring the U.S. presidents. Many of the coins, especially ones with George Washington’s portrait have letters missing along the edge of the coin.


PRICE: $20-$45



6) “In God We Trust” 2005 Kansas State Quarter

In most of the cases, this coin has the letter “T” missing from the word “TRUST”. A lot of people believed this to be a mint employee’s political statement, but experts say it’s just a result of grease preventing a clean pressing.


PRICE: Up to $100
