This 1959 penny is one of the craziest and rarest coins in the world – but the big question is, is it real? The front of the coin shows a 1959-D obverse minted in Denver, while the back shows a Wheat Reverse, something reserved for pennies made from 1909 to 1958. The government examined this coin and found it to be real, while the major coin companies don’t see that it is fake, but also don’t want to authenticate it – it’s a real conundrum. Regardless, collectors have paid tens of thousands to own it, and it’s a great reminder to keep your eyes peeled when looking at pocket change or coin collections for anything out of the ordinary.
