When you dump the change out of your pocket, you typically don't see anything too interesting. There's usually just a faded, old penny or maybe a quarter with something other than an eagle on the back of it. However, if you empty out your spare change and see an especially shiny dime, you might have a coin worth more than ten cents, and in some cases, a whole lot more.
TikTok's The Coin Guy explained in a video that one shiny dime in particular is worth $456,000, and he detailed what to look out for. He said the coin you want to find is actually a proof and not your everyday dime. Proofs are struck twice by a special polished die, making them particularly shiny. Mostly, they come in collector's sets, but they can be used as currency and do wind up in circulation.
Of course, finding a $456,000 coin is unlikely, but you still might encounter a proof dime worth more than face value. If you think you have, there is an easy test to find out for sure if it is a proof. The Coin Guy explained that proofs have characteristics of a mirror and if you pass an object over it, you'll see it reflected on the coin. Regular dimes won't do that.
If you do have a proof, it's undoubtedly more valuable than just ten cents. They usually are worth at least five dollars. Check out this site to see what yours is worth.
