Coin collector Ryan Quinlan found a rare penny in a roll of nickels

In a recent video, a Coin collector discovered an unexpected antique penny while sorting through rolls of nickels.

The owner of the YouTube channel Quin's Coins, Ryan Quinlan, was astounded to discover the rare penny among the five-cent bills.

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US President, is depicted on the coin, which is a wheat cent from 1918.

In 1909, the cent featured Abraham Lincoln in honor of the man's 100th birthday.

Since then, he has consistently appeared on the cent, but this 1918 coin is among the most expensive in the Lincoln series.

On the reverse of the coin, Victor David Brenner's design features two wheat stalks.

Every wheat cent has President Lincoln's face on the obverse, or heads side, along with the words "Liberty" and "In God We Trust."

1918 wheat cents have a special place in the annals of one-cent coins.

On the bottom of the reverse side of Brenner's original 1909 Lincoln wheat cent design, he engraved his initials.

1918 pennies can be worth anywhere from a few dollars to a few thousand, according to the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS).

The location and condition of the coin's minting determine its value.

In 1918, the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints produced one-cent coins for the US.

The most valuable coins are those from San Francisco, according to PCGS auction data.

In circulated condition, they are worth up to $100, while mint state coins are worth up to $2,000.
