WITH most of us spending more time at home, you might want to dig into your spare change for rare and valuable coins.
If you spot any of the top six, you could end up making a nice profit as they’re worth up to $ 10,633 each.
We took a look on eBay for the most valuable circulating coins sold in the United States recently.
So take a look at the coins below, as you can earn rewards.
However, the value of the coin obviously depends on the demand of collectors and it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
In general, the lower the mintage, the rarer the coin, and the rarer the coin, the more valuable it is.
Is your small change worth a fortune?
IF you think you might have a rare coin, you might be able to make a real mint.
The most valuable coins are usually those with a low mintage or an error.
These are often considered the most valuable by collectors.
You should check the coin’s selling price on eBay.
Search for the full name of the part, select the “sold” listing, and then switch the search to “highest value”.
This will give you an idea of how much money the coin is intended for.
You can choose to sell the coin on eBay or through a specialty site such as Coinappraiser or USA Coin Book.
If you choose the auction site, remember to set a minimum price that is greater than or at least equal to the face value of the coin.
Even if your coin “sells” on eBay for a high price, there is no guarantee that the buyer will spit it out.
According to its terms and conditions, the auction website states that bidders enter into a “legally binding contract to purchase an item,” but there is no way to apply this rule in reality.
The most eBay can do is add a note to their account for the unpaid item or remove their ability to bid and buy.
