1795 Reeded Edge Cent
Most of the coins on this list are traditional pennies, quarters, dimes, and nickels, but a few cents also have a place in the world of coin collecting enthusiasm. This 1795 Reeded Edge Cent is considered to be one of the rarest of all the big cent coins. You might be surprised to learn that these cents are actually very low-grade, which is one of the reasons they’re so coveted. These cents were developed as more of an experiment rather than being intended for general circulation, which is why they’re so low-grade. Only seven of these coins have been confirmed to exist, so it’s unlikely you’re carrying one around in your purse. However, if you happen to come across one, make sure you hold onto it! One of these coins sold for $1.26 million in 2008.
