You might want to be more deliberate about the old cache of coins in your attic. Or those ones you log around in the pockets of old clothes from years ago. Coins have long fascinated collectors and experts since the first ones were made. For some, coins are simply valued based on sentiments, for others, they are a store of ever-increasing wealth.
It is for this reason you have experts whose job it is to grade coins to determine how valuable they are. And quite a lot of coins have surprised their owners when they brought in huge income at sales or auctions.
What makes one coin more valuable than the next coin? Rarity is one major reason for its high value. At other times it is the condition of the coin. The more pristine and near-mint the condition of a coin is, the more valuable it is. Other coins become instant hits because they’ve been engraved mistakenly with errors. The prying eyes of engravers missed these coins and they found their way into circulation.
This article presents 25 of the rarest and most valuable coins.
