It was only worth $10 back in the 1800s. Today, it's worth more than $150,000.
It’s a one-of-a-kind 1879 gold piece, and it is now here in Panama City. Larry Lee, owner of Coin and Bullion Reserves, acquired this coin when he bought an estate in Alaska.
He wouldn’t say exactly how much he originally paid for the estate, but let’s just say he got a pretty good deal.
Now, he is trying to decide if he's going to sell it to a collector in a private deal or if he'll auction it off in Orlando at a public event in January.
Either way, Lee's excited to have come across this coin and excited to show it off.
"Showing people something they've never seen before; no one in the coin business has ever seen something like it. So it's very exciting to be able to offer something that nobody else can."
There were only 762 minted coins in Carson City, and this is the only one known to still exist.
