OK, here’s the short list of the top 5 categories of valuable coins you should be looking for in pocket change, old jars of coins, inherited coin collections, and other places where you’ll have the chance of easily finding old and valuable coins:

  1. All wheat-back Lincoln cents (Before 1959)
  2. All nickels before 1960
  3. Any dimes and quarters before 1965 (these are silver)
  4. All half dollars before 1971 (these are silver)
  5. Any coins that appear to have mistakes — such as doubled dates, doubled images, or missing parts of the design
