8 Rare Coins You Should Not Spend

A recent YouTube video from Coin AZ looked at eight rare U.S. coins you should not spend. Here’s a look at those coins, including some of their sale prices:

1964-D Roosevelt Dime ($920): Coins must be in pristine, uncirculated condition to get the top prices.

1981-S Susan Anthony Dollar ($1,273): The key to getting the highest value is finding error versions with “blotchy remnants” of another “S” to the lower left of the primary “S” mintmark, or clear “S” mintmarks with bulbous serifs.

1969-D Kennedy Half Dollar ($2,640). Versions of this coin in pristine, uncirculated condition can sell for as much as $6,000, according to the Numismatic Guaranty Company.

1914-D Lincoln Penny ($4,406): You can find these pennies selling for hundreds to thousands of dollars on eBay, but one of the pricier coins in mint condition sold for $159,000.

1987-P Kennedy Half Dollar ($4,800): Again, these coins need to be in pristine, uncirculated condition to command the most money.

1925-D Lincoln Penny ($21,600): Brown varieties of this coin are often more affordable than red varieties, according to Bullion Shark. Values of all varieties can range from $2,000 to $75,000.
