1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents… Red coins tend to accumulate in the wallet. They add a lot of weight but unfortunately very little value. This is why we generally do not know what to do with it.

In some cases, it can be smart to take a closer look at your pieces. Indeed, whether it is coins of one, two, or five cents, some can bring you significant profits.
