A Rare Coin Is Worth Millions

Posted: Updated:

The whereabouts of the 1913 Liberty Nickel has been a conversation topic for over 40 years due to the mystery of its location and authenticity. When numismatist Larry Lee had the chance to bid on the rare coin after it resurfaced in 2002, he took a chance and came out on top. 

"This is one of the things that I can now cross off my bucket list it's something I wanted to own and this particular nickel has such an interesting story to go with it and of the five known nickels two of them are in museums where they will never be resold and two are in private hands and now this one is owned by me," Lee said.

Although the Liberty Nickel is an ultimate find, Lee says it's not uncommon for people to find valuable coins that are worth 500 to 5,000 dollars when they are in good condition.
