Would You Pay $2.5 Million for a Penny?

A 1792 American penny was hammered at more than $2.5 million at a Heritage Auction in Orlando, Florida. It was one of the first penny coins produced in the United States.

The coin, which is only one of ten in existence, is referred to as a "Birch Cent", named after the designer, Robert Birch.

The coin was purchased by Kevin Lipton of Lipton Rare Coins.
