Searching Pocket Change

We have a lot of people in the store ask us what to look for when they’re going through their coins. Unless you have a Red Book to reference while you search, we usually show people this list of coins that are always worth more than their face value:

1¢ – 1958 and before

5¢ – 1938 and before, 1942 to 1945

10¢ – 1964 and before

25¢ – 1964 and before

50¢ – 1964 and before

Again, this isn’t a comprehensive list, but it’s a safe bet that any of the coins here will be worth more than just their face value. If you’d like to get more in depth information, check out the red book in our store: http://firststatecoins.com/product/red-book-2018/
