Scarcity, historical relevance, and condition can make rare coins valuable over time. However, market demand, auctions, and coin quality can affect valuations. Here are some rare coins with high values:

The 1804 Silver Dollar, known as the "King of American Coins," is one of the rarest and most precious U.S. coins. Over $3 million was paid for one specimen in 2019.

There are only five known copies of this coin, which makes it very rare. In 2018, one of them sold for almost $4.5 million.

After the US left the gold standard, most of the millions of Double Eagles were melted down. Only a few survived, making them valuable. A 2002 sale topped $7.5 million.

The Birch Cent is very expensive because it was made as a model for the first U.S. one-cent coin. In 2015, one of them sold for more than $2.5 million.
