This striking coin is actually struck with the wrong date. The $10 gold Eagle coin is stamped 1804 but was created in 1834 as a gift from Andrew Jackson. The coin has proved its value many times over. In 2001 it sold for a paltry million dollars, then two years later, it was declared for $2.4 million by a buyer.

There are only four of these coins in the word. Proving again that collecting coins continues to be a popular hobby that often starts when a parent or grandparent gives a special coin as a gift to a child or grandchild. Stats for Coin Collecting Pays Trending: Older & Chilly
