This 1792 Birch Cent will be auctioned on October 26 in Baltimore and it's expected to be worth $1 million! Not bad for one cent.
Birch Cents were commissioned by Thomas Jefferson and the coins were seen first hand by George Washington and Jefferson.
“This is the first American cent ever produced and represents a very unique piece of numismatic history,” said Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, in a statement. “It is the only one of its kind, making it a very exclusive coin to own. The collector who ends up with this Birch Cent will have the satisfaction of knowing that it very likely was held by our founding fathers, making it a very special piece of American history as well.”
