Top 50 Most Valuable Pennies In History


Updated For 2023: The Top 50 Most Valuable U.S. Pennies are constantly changing, and I tried to do my best to do a quick runthrough of some of the highlights of the best errors, varieties, key dates, proofs, patterns, mis-strikes, and other craziness that has happened at the U.S. mint over the past 167 years or so since small-size cent coins started up in 1856! There have been some re-pricing in coin markets, with certain coins skyrocketing up the ranks, while other coins fall significantly down in value – with one of them going from $1,700,000 in a private sale to $840,000 in public auction (and falling out of #1).
