The U.S. Sun recently stated that a rare quarter minted in the year 2000 with a mistake on it had just sold for $216 on eBay, according to the newspaper’s sources.
The coin is part of the New Hampshire state Washington quarters series, but it was struck on a Jefferson nickel rather than a Washington quarter.
However, according to the United States Sun, that is not the most costly uncommon coin. According to USA Coin Book, rare Washington quarters from the 1932 mint run can get as much as $13,573 at auction.
According to The United States Sun, coins with errors and limited mintages have the highest resale value.
Occasionally referred to as “planchet” errors, error coins such as the Washington quarter that recently sold for $216 are also known as double denominations.
This is due to the fact that the error occurs to a blank coin (also known as a “planchet”) during the minting process. According to the U.S. Sun, errors can occur when the incorrect planchet is placed into the minting press,
or when the machine contains dies of multiple denominations, resulting in a mix-up of the denominations.

When searching for rare coins, seek for any that are uncommon, such as a design you’ve never seen before, a printing fault where the print appears “off,” or a coin with the wrong denomination printed on the reverse side of the coin. Don’t forget to examine both sides of the document.
Then, on eBay, search for the coin’s entire name and year, choose “sold” goods, and sort the results by “highest value” first, until you find the coin. In the event that you come across a winner, you can sell it on eBay or through a variety of other online markets.
