GOOD EYE I’m a coin expert – the exact date and element you need to look for to find a $1,000 Jefferson nickel

Your coins' worth may vary depending on a number of variables, such as their mintage, grade, condition, and any flaws.

Given the large annual mintage of Jefferson coins, it may become very difficult to find something of value.

For instance, with more than 2.6 million pieces produced, the 1950-D (Denver) nickel has the lowest production in the series.

With only 484,000 coins produced, the 1909 VDB-S (San Francisco) coin is the lowest mintage in the history of the Lincoln penny series.

However, according to numismatics expert Justin Couch, there is one Jefferson nickel you need to search for that might be worth thousands of dollars.

For instance, a 2016 nickel that was sold online for $123 and was described by the vendor as a "strike through" error.

The Henning Jefferson nickel is another priceless coin; one recently sold online for $425.

Despite being fake, coin collectors still prize these because of their legendary past.
