Your penny could be worth more than $100,000 

If you have the right kind of coins, old change could become a small fortune.

One of only two dates with zinc-coated steel is the 1944 Lincoln penny.

One of these silver coins has sold for upwards of $100,000 to collectors.

TheCoinChannel on TikTok's Eric Miller is here to help if you're unsure of what you have.

He received a letter from one of his followers asking for assistance in identifying a 1944 penny that belonged to their father.

A 1944 steel penny in comparable condition sold at auction for $180,000.

The penny should weigh 2.7 grams and adhere to a magnet to determine if you have one.

The reported mintages for all steel cents with the year 1944 are less than 40.
