What is a quarter worth if it has two tails instead of a head and a tail?

How rare is this?


Answer by  noey1958 (1405)

This is a trick quarter that is used to win a coin toss. No quarter was really made by a mint that has both the obverse and the reverse as a "tail". The holder of the coin would call "Tails" and flip the coin to win the toss. These were made after people caught on to the two headed quarter.

If it is a real quarter, it could be quite valuable. However, it may be a fake designed to fool others when calling heads or tails on a coin flip. If you believe it is real, take it to a coin shop and ask for an expert opinion.


Answer by  Hamilton (126)

It is a very rare mistake that has originated from the coin press, and skipped quality check. Make sure it is not a trick coin used for magic tricks, in that case it is worth around $5; but if it is an original mistake, you can get around $80+ from collectors. It won't be easy to find a collector, though.

Quarters are generally not worth much at all, and I've never heard of a collectible quarter with two tails, can't find any information on one, I suspect it's not real.


Answer by  Teaj (47)

A quarter that has two tails instead of a head and a tail is most likely a coin used in magic tricks or by someone that uses it to win a bet by flipping the coin and calling out heads. So the monetary value would be 0.


Answer by  noey1958 (1405)

This is made to deceive when someone is "flipping a coin" the person with this calls tails and will win. Not worth a quarter!

Theres almost a 99% chance its a novelty coin. However if it was real (only 3 known in existence as a mint error) then it would be worth atleast 100,000 dollars.
