How many times have you weighed the little usefulness of the pennies you have in your purse? You may even have accumulated them and that you have them stored in a boat waiting to count them so that they can be exchanged for coins of more value or a banknote, but be careful that there is a special cent coin that could have a value of 50,000 euros So what maybe you have among those pennies that you hardly pay attention to.
Find out if you have the cent coin that can be worth 50 thousand euros
The euro, in all its denominations, has been with us for 22 years. It was introduced on January 1, 1999 and, for the first three years, it was almost ‘invisible’, as it was used only for accounting purposes and for electronic payments and although we are already more than used to paying everything in euros, surely on more than one occasion you have thought about the why it occurred to them to take out coins of such little value as the one and two cents.
But the truth is that these can become quite necessary when amounts that are not “round” must be paid, that is, when we buy something whose value does not end in 0 or 5, so that we do not leave them so much aside and use our pennies since in addition maybe a penny is in your possession which apparently is highly prized among collectors.
How to recognize the 50,000 euro cent
The currency in question, is being searched by eBay. In this portal there are people willing to pay up to 50,000 euros for a penny that is apparently of German origin.
To recognize it, you must also know that on the front it has a drawn oak, but also It is made of the steel used for 10 cent coins, so that it is yellow (and not copper). Then look now among your coins and if by chance you discover that you have one of these characteristics and you think that it is ten cents, look at the value, if it says that it is one cent, you can start to consider yourself a little richer.
But if you can’t find the currency in question, don’t worry. Take a look at the ones you have again, because you may have one that is less rare, but also requested by collectors. For example, There is a 1 cent coin that has the engraving only on the reverse and does not have the year of issue. This copy is worth 550 euros.
Another penny highly prized by collectors comes from Italy, it has a larger diameter than normal and on the side of the face, instead of Castel del Monte, is the Mole Antonelliana (which appears on two cent coins). In total hThere are about 100 copies of this type. If you have one, it could be worth between 2,500 and 6,000 euros.
Other coins minted here in Spain and that are the object of desire on the part of collectors are the two euro coins that were launched on the 10th anniversary of the birth of the euro, when the National Mint and Stamp Factory (FNMT) designed a special series of these coins. However, an error occurred in its manufacture and some of the coins have larger than normal stars on the edge over the euro zone. If you have one of these coins, they may pay you between 100 and 200 euros for it.
