Usually, coins are worth their face value. For example, a penny is worth one cent while a nickel is worth five cents, and so on. However, there are times when collectors demand certain coins and pay high prices for them at auction.
There are presently 2004 quarters in circulation that might be worth up to $2,000 each. These coins are really valuable since they feature the state of Wisconsin, which depicts a cow, a wheel of cheese, and an ear of horn on the back. Just like most recent quarters produced throughout the last few decades, the face of America’s first president George Washington is shown on the front.
A TikTok video recently surfaced showing that some 2004 Wisconsin state quarters can be worth thousands of dollars. The value of these coins comes from an extra “leaf” on the corn, which the account referred to as a “high extra leaf.” Without this unique characteristic, the coin is only worth about twenty-five cents.
A 2004 Wisconsin state quarter with an extra mark was sold for more than $2,500. The coin’s condition was pristine and it looked new.
In the viral TikTok video, CoinHub explains that because it has the extra mark on it, the quarter in the video was sold for more than $2,000. Just like all Wisconsin state quarters minted in 2004, this specific version featured an additional leaf on the ear of corn; however, there was also an additional leaf on this one. The quarter also states, “Wisconsin 1848,” which indicates the year that Wisconsin became a state in the United States of America.
The video creator points out the extra leaf on the left-hand side of the ear of corn with a pen. The special mark is directly below this leaf and has a curvature like a crescent moon.
In the comment section of the viral video, hundreds of TikTok users expressed their feelings about the $2,000 quarter. The following are some examples:
“Who does one sell their coins to if they’re worth something?”
“I’ve been looking for this quarter with that flaw since they were first issued!”
“So if I have that coin and it mirrors, I might make rent?”
“I have one that has a dot right below that leaf. How to find out if it’s worth anything?”
“I have a coin from my Grandma’s collection. It sells around 1k-1.5k.”
