A one-cent coin minted in Germany in 2002 can be purchased for 50 thousand euros, due to its unique features, designed by Rolf Lederbogen.
The back of the coin features an oak tree, one of the most significant symbols in German history and culture. The tree represents the State that protects the citizens, while its stem shows the strength and stability of the country.
According to ExecutiveDIGEST, the coin becomes unique due to the material used. The steel used to mint the 1-cent coins is different from all other coins minted in the same period, which gives them a different colour.
If you find the coin in your wallet, you should take into account that before taking it to any auction, the coin must be properly evaluated by a numismatic specialist, to determine the real value of the coin.
