Coins :: A nickle for your thoughts

My nickle is worth what? $3,000,000 is what this tiny treasure brought at auction in 2004. Yup, it's a nickle! The 1913 Olsen Liberty Head Nickel to be exact. So search your coat pockets, your piggy banks, in between the cushions of your sofa and especially that 1900 tufted mohair, straw filled couch that you found up in grandma's attic. The likelyhood of you finding one of these nickles is now ZILCH, but who knows, maybe you'll find another valuable coin, like a USA 1933 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle Coin worth $7,590,020.

The five known 1913 Liberty Head nickels.
Specimens from left to right: Eliasberg, Olsen, Norweb, Walton, and McDermott.

From wikipedia..."The Liberty Head nickel, sometimes referred to as the V nickel due to its reverse design, was an American nickel five-cent piece. Officially, it was minted from 1883 to 1912; a few were struck in 1881 and 1882, and five pieces were surreptitiously struck in 1913, which today number among America's most fabled numismatic rarities..."

Coins that are worth millions - they're JUST COOL!
