Rare nickel sells for $3 million

NEW ORLEANS, LA -

In New Orleans, five cents turned into millions of dollars.

A 1913 Liberty Head nickel was auctioned for a price of $3 million. Only five of the coins exist.
This type of nickel is so valuable, because apparently this exact coin was never supposed to be made in the first place.

That wasn't the only pricey piece of change on display.

At the National Money Show, an 1804 Silver Dollar sold for a price of $5 million.
