The prices might seem outlandish to some, but coin collecting has become a lucrative business over the years. Many are willing to spend thousands if not millions on rare coins that could rise in value in the coming years. The most expensive coin in the world, called the Flowing Hair Silver Dollar from 1794, is valued at a whopping $10 million.
