5 Most Overlooked Coins That Could Be Worth a Fortune

1804 Silver Dollar Class I

This coin is very rare. It is 90% silver and 10% copper, and only about 15 have ever been made. In 1999, one of these coins sold at auction for more than $4 million. 

A few of these coins are currently being offered for sale on auction websites for prices ranging from approximately one million dollars to as much as four million dollars.

1913 Liberty Head Nickel

Only five or six 1913 Liberty Head nickels exist. One of the rarest and most valuable coins, worth $4–$5 million. Due to its design, the V nickel may be worth $20 million in near pristine or mint condition.

1787 Brasher Doubloon

Some of this currency was gold and some bronze. One gold variation sold for nearly $5 million. The doubloon shows a mountain peak sunrise with Brasher's name below the ocean waves. 

1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar

These coins are rare, with less than 1,800 made. Lady Liberty with flowing hair is on the front and an eagle on the back. The coin is worth hundreds of thousands to millions, with one sold for $10 million.

1943 Lincoln Head Copper Penny

Wartime zinc-coated steel pennies were created in 1943. During an accidental copper batch, 40 of these unusual pennies circulated. Wheat pennies can sell for tens of thousands or possibly a million dollars.
