About RARE US Coins

Rare US coins command a small fortune to coin collectors, with the most expensive on record being the 1794 "Flowing Hair" dollar coin that sold for over 10 million dollars at a private auction. The majority of rare coins, however, are much more affordable for beginning collectors, although the price does rise steeply depending on the coin's condition, mintage numbers, and demand among collectors. Old US coins from after the Revolutionary War and the Civil War often appear on eBay along with a variety of other great options. Extremely rare versions of common coins like the 1969 penny help boost your coin collection count and provide a conversation piece. Most pennies are not worth much more than their face value, but the 1969 penny from the San Francisco mint with a "double die" flaw on its obverse side commands a price in the thousands of dollars. Adding rare US coins to your coin collection is an ideal investment, as these coins only increase in value as the years go by.
