Check Your Piggy Banks For This Vintage Penny Worth $85,000

By Mustafa Gatollari

I could never get into coin collecting, maybe because I'm not a total nerd. Of course I'm joking, but I know nothing about coins or the minting process, and I'm too busy throwing those bad boys into CoinStar machines to worry about whether or not they're going to be valuable some day.

But we all know someone who's got an old jug or piggy bank filled with coins in a basement somewhere, waiting for the day to cash them all in and see what kinda cash they've got just lying around.

Well it turns out that if you have this special penny hiding around in your collection, then it could be worth a lot.
