No, not only rare 1 or 2 euro coins are worth a lot: collectors also look for cents with certain characteristics.

It's worth taking a look in your wallet.

With almost every purchase we spend

coins

and get new change back.

Many do not pay so much attention to the

euros and cents

that go into their wallets.

One or the other could have already issued coins

for which collectors would pay a lot of money

.

As a rule, 1-euro * and 2-euro coins with special features are very popular.

But

cents

are not insignificant either: some

5-cent coins,

for example, which are only available in small numbers, could be worth a lot.

5 Cent Coins: These rare cents are worth a lot of money

Countries that use the

euro

as their currency usually have their own coins with symbols and landmarks that stand for the respective country.

This also applies to small states such as the

Vatican

or

Monaco

.

However, the number of coins in these countries is usually more limited.

Accordingly, collectors like to pay a little more money for copies that are only available in very small numbers.

This also applies to one or the other

5-cent coin

.

The portal chip reveals which four cents are particularly valuable:

  • Vatican 2002, value:

    approx. 40 euros

    (only 71,000 copies available)

  • Monaco 2013, value:

    around 60 euros

    (only 10,000 copies available)

  • Monaco 2002, value:

    approx. 65 euros

    (only 8,000 copies available)

  • Monaco 2011, value:

    approx. 75 euros

    (only 7,000 copies available)

At first glance, that might not seem like a lot of money when you consider that collectors pay tens of thousands of euros for other coins.

Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at your wallet from time to time.

date given

is important for the coins
