Non-Circulating Legal Tender

(redirected from Noncirculating Legal Tender)

Non-Circulating Legal Tender

A coin that, due to its rarity or some other reason, does not circulate. As a result, while a vendor would be required to accept it as payment (because it is legal tender), it can actually be worth (and sold for) much more than its face value.
