Lucky In Montana? You Could Be Holding Thousands In Your Hand
The next time you are out and about, just enjoying the sunshine, whistling your favorite tune, and you look down and see a penny, you may want to grab it.
The financial struggle here in Bozeman is apparent, so a little luck might be just what you need. You could be sitting on thousands of dollars and not even know it. Especially with all our hiking and outdoor activities, I think coming across one of these rare coins is not too far-fetched.
Bored one night, I was on TikTok watching this guy who metal detects. I know, I'm a nerd, but it's actually really interesting! After watching a few videos my "for you page" (FYP) suddenly had this guy on it who talks about rare coins. I geeked out hard.
It wasn't much after watching @the_coin_guy, that I had my kid digging through the ol' change jar. It was actually a little bonding activity and we really enjoyed it; I don't recommend telling your kid the value, just in case you find one!
It's not just pennies that can hold some crazy values. Check out this dime that is worth way more than 10 cents.
Yes, some old coins do hold a higher value, but some, as recent as the year 2000, also could have a significant value as well.
The next time you leave a penny in the penny cup at the checkout or give the little ones all the change from your purse so they can get some candy, you may want to double-check those coins first. Maybe you will find a coin worth so much you could purchase half a house here in Bozeman.
