I guess it can save – big time – to hoard your nickels.
A rare nickel dating back to 1913 is expected to fetch $3 million when it is auctioned in January in Orlando, Florida. The coin is one of only five ever made and was struck when the US mint was in the process of switching designs. The new nickels were supposed to show a Native American head on one side and a bison on the other. However on this particular coin, only one of the reforms was implemented. They updated the tail side to show the bison but instead of etching the American native on the other, they kept the figure of the statue of liberty. Essentially, it is a halfway house between one period of American coinage and the next. – From Luxury Insider
