How many of us have a cup holder, jar, or a pocket full of change right now?  I can safely assume just about everyone! We all have spare change laying around.

Now, go pull out all those pennies from your “coin collection” and then continue reading.  To see exactly what you are looking for, check out the video by scrolling down.

The penny we are searching for is not an older, one-in-a-million penny. Separate all of your 1994 pennies and put them to the side.

Depending on how big your coin collection area is, you may have a pretty big pile in front of you.

Or, like in my case, I have too many areas in my home that collect spare change. My search may take a day or two.


If you are asking yourself if this is worth all this trouble? In my opinion, the answer is yes.  That Lincoln can net you a couple of Franklin’s.

Yes, that penny is worth up to $200!!  Just recently one of these pennies, in good condition, sold for over $200!

I know from now on, when I see a penny I will pick it up. Not for good luck, but because it can be worth a lot more.

So what exactly are we looking for?

Flip the penny over to the Lincoln Memorial. Tails up! Look at the columns on the right side of the penny. We are looking for an extra column or two. Click the link below to see the video.

Now there are coins out there that are worth a lot more money than this penny, but for me, an extra $200 is a nice surprise.
