Euro coins that are no longer in circulation or incorrectly printed are worth a fortune. It is not easy to find this type of coin (otherwise it would not be very expensive) but if you are lucky enough to intercept one of them and offer it for sale, you can earn amazing numbers.
Coin fans are very numerous and exchange information and gossip as if they were an exclusive club. Getting into it is not easy because they are somewhat dodgy and suspicious people, but once you get inside the circle, a world of information and very interesting anecdotes opens up.
To understand the world of collecting, especially as it relates to coins, you need to become an expert not only in the market price but also in the historical context in which a coin becomes collectible. The reason for its value is often associated with a historical event that occurred in a particular year.
The 1 euro and 2 euro coins are the coins that we find frequently in the collectors’ network because with the advent of the euro, there were many printing errors and events or celebrations that gave rise to certain coins. Two in particular I want to highlight in this article because they really are worth a fortune.
One euro coin is worth a fortune
As we all know, the Italian Euro has an interface that goes along with all the other European currencies and one that is closely related to Italy. Our nation has decided to honor the genius of Leonardo da Vinci in one of the largest denominations of coins. He did this by printing a portrait of a Vitruvian man.
The single euro coin “R” placed to the left of the Vitruvian Man is the classic coin that we find in circulation every day. And that we definitely also have in our wallet. But if this letter “R” is absent, it will be as if we won the lottery because this coin is worth a fortune.
The piece was accidentally crafted and is therefore very rare. If we find it, perhaps in perfect condition or “excellent uncirculated” as they say in the jargon, we can win the full value of about 40 thousand euros. On the other hand, if it is marked with an ‘S’ on the golden border, the price is close to 20 thousand euros.
Prices are calculated on a coin that appears as soon as it is printed and therefore virtually uncirculated, thus avoiding the usual oxidation effect of coins we exchange every day. So whoever sells it means that they somehow acquired it and kept it without trading it. Or he knew what was wrong right away and waited for the right moment to put it up for sale.
But if you are not an expert and you find yourself in your hands one of these coins, it is best to contact an expert to evaluate the best selling method and the indicated channel together. In order not to be exposed to scams or scams that are very common in this field.
