This isn't just any old Wisconsin quarter though, otherwise, we'd all be rich. These quarters were made in error, and because of that, you could be standing on a gold mine if you've got one.

According to Wisconsin State News, the error took place with the 2004 Wisconsin State Quarter.

Wisconsin state quarters from the 50 State Quarters Program, produced by the U.S. Mint, feature a cow, a peeled husk of corn, and a sliced wheel of cheese. The quarters were released in 2004. There is a small design difference, though, that shows an extra leaf on the illustrated corn husk. The ones made in error have an extra leaf on the left side of the corn cob on the coin. There are, according to the U.S. Mint, approximately 50,000 of these extra leaf quarters that were minted.
