Ten 18th-century Pennies Are Worth $90 Million USD 

Minted between 1804 and 1894, these pennies were part of everyday commerce, passing through countless hands and witnessing the nation's transformation from an agrarian society to an industrial powerhouse. 

What sets these particular pennies apart is their rarity and exceptional condition. 

Among them are coins with minting errors, unique designs, and historical significance that elevate their worth to stratospheric levels.  

One such coin is the 1792 Birch Cent, believed to be the first experimental penny produced by the United States Mint.

Another notable penny is the 1844 Double-Stamped Penny, a remarkable error coin that bears the impression of two separate mintings.  

Such anomalies are incredibly rare and highly sought after by collectors for their uniqueness and historical value. 

The story of these pennies takes a dramatic turn when, in the early 20th century, they disappeared from public circulation, only to resurface decades later in the hands of a private collector.
