And that may surprise some, but it’s possible that your one-cent denominations are worth a lot more than face value.

In general, the demand for coins could increase due to unique characteristics.

This includes key data, errors as well as grade and condition.

But the TikTok user known as “nickpvcy” struck gold when he found a rare Lincoln penny after sifting through tens of thousands of coins.

The video was quoted by coin connoisseur Eric Miller, who has more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

What to look for

The Lincoln penny found contained the date 1955 with the design of the ears of wheat.

But not every piece with this engraved year will suffice as hundreds of millions of coins were produced during this issue.

Most importantly, you should look for a double die error effect.

This happens when certain items are duplicated.

If you see the double date along with the words “Liberty” and “In God We Trust” on the 1955 Lincoln Penny, then you might have something of value.

These elements are all on the front of the penny.

User “nickpvcy” claims he found it after searching through many 30,000 wheat pennies.

It’s unclear how he got hold of this amount of coins, whether they were pieces already in his loose change, or if some were purchased from bankrolls.

But various pennies were scattered around on the table and in boxes and cups.

how much is it worth

As always, no matter what you find, the value of the coins depends on the grade and state of preservation.

In average condition, the 1955 Double Die Penny is worth $1,318 according to the USA Coin Book.

But it could top a whopping $17,000 if it’s in an MS 63 rating, which would mean it’s out of circulation.

Eric revealed in his video that some recent eBay sales featured 1955 Double Die Pennies for around $2,800.

How to find rare coins

There are many ways to find rare coins.

The first thing you should do is check places in your house or places where you might keep loose change.

Some other things to try are using a metal detector in known areas to look for buried treasure and stopping by your local bank branch and asking for a packet of pennies.

You can also try to get a good deal online through USA Coin Book or eBay.

But make sure you research the coin first and know what it’s worth before you buy it.

And also – make sure you are aware of potential fakes on the internet.

To avoid this, be sure to check the history of the seller and whether or not the coin in the listing has been certified.
