Check your couch cushions, dig through your wallet, check every coat pocket, and even start digging through that junk drawer in your kitchen because you may be sitting on $2 million.

It's funny how this sounds like nothing if we were talking about winning the lottery but knowing any one of us could have a rare dime worth around $2 million is enough for all of us to check our rainy day fund or take a moment to look at every dime closely from now on to see if it's a winner so to speak.

According to Reader's Digest, it's an 1894 S Barber Dime and only 24 ever existed. They came out of the San Francisco Mint. Supposedly out of those 24, nine still exist with two of these multi-million dollar dimes unaccounted for.

This dime could easily be in a cash register in Stamford, a bar in Danbury, or under someone's car seat while driving from Westchester to Massachusetts.

According to The Modern Met, the other seven are in the hands of various collectors.

The next time you stop at that gas station in Norwalk or when you decide to do some spring cleaning maybe you'll find one in that pair of jeans you haven't worn in forever. Check those handbags you haven't carried in a while as well.

According to The Modern Met, these Barber Dimes as they're called were simply worth their face value of 10 cents from 1892 to 1916 except for the year 1894 when only those 24 were made. So the year is crucial obviously when checking out your dimes. Just because it has a unique back like the picture doesn't mean it's one of the two $2 million ones.

The Modern Met says if you think you have one of these extremely valuable dimes, immediately go to a coin appraiser.
