$1 million penny? Take that for your thoughts

A copper penny, minted in the first year the United States churned out its own coins in 1793, fetched $1 million on Saturday at an Orlando convention center, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

The sale is touted as one of the biggest deals at the Florida United Numismatics at the Orange County Convention Center, according to the Florida newspaper.

An unknown buyer made the top-dollar bid for the rare, one-cent coin that was reportedly in excellent condition. The penny showed "no wear on its lettering, its Lady Liberty face or the wreath on its back," the Sentinel reported.
