RARE coins have the potential to turn your pocket change into a payday – with two pennies recently selling for more than $1,100 each.
The 1909 penny is considered to be valuable and unique.
Only 484,000 cents have been issued with VDB initials, according to Professional Coin Grading Service president Ron Gruth.
The initials “V.D.B.” on the back of the coin, which mark the initials of designer Victor David Brenner, are what make the coins so valuable.
According to USA Coin Book, the 1909 coin is worth $917 in average condition and up to $2,222 if in “Uncirculated (MS-63).”
