FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- The first penny ever minted by the United States government recently sold for more than a million dollars! That's a lot of cash for a single coin. Everyone has their change jar, saving up for something. What are the chances one of those coins is worth something big, and you could cash in a little earlier?

Jason Meyers went on a treasure hunt for that secret fortune. He even had a few dusty, old coins lying around, and as it turns out, he was pleasantly surprised by how much some of them were worth.
