You come home after a long day of running errands with a big handful of change in your pockets and add it to your coin jar.
Inside the jar, there’s the usual mix: some quarters, some dimes, a whole lot of pennies. But then you notice something odd: one of the pennies seems to have a misprint.
Could it be a rare coin? To be clear: this is all hypothetical. Rare coins are, well, rare. We don’t want to suggest that you’ll find one in every handful of change.
But if you do happen to come across rare coins, there are steps you can take to preserve your find.
