But what makes one coin more valuable than another? Usually, it all comes down to rarity. So what makes a coin rare? Bryan Abbott of 310Antiques is here to explain just that!
Among the factors that Bryan spoke of in the video above, rarity seems to be the most important; and when it comes to rarity, “error” coins can be some of the rarest and valuable around. When a coin is manufactured incorrectly by a mint, it’s considered an error coin. While this can happen for a number of reasons, it doesn’t happen very often (hence the rarity of these coins).
