If you're anything like me, when you see a penny - you don't pick it up. Well, you'd better start changing that attitude because it turns out that you could be sitting on a FREAKING GOLDMINE.
Someone's sold one measly little one pence piece for an eye-watering £72,000.
It was originally made in 1933, which really isn't that old when you think about it. David Attenborough was seven back then.
Only four were made as it was a 'pattern' coin, which basically means that it was a model of a coin that was considered for production - but never actually went into circulation.
Okay, so maybe those pennies you've got in a biscuit tin on your shelf aren't actually going to make you a millionaire.
A spokesperson for the house said of the price: "No other bronze coin has ever come close.
"I think the last was in the region of £15,000."
So yeah, apparently people collect coins. Hey, I'm not judging. I went through a brief stage of stamp collecting. No fucks given.
