Hello! I recently was going through my childhood coin collection and flint and unopened year 2000 Cheerios dollar. It has been in a protective box for the past 19 years and I found out that it may be worth something. Can anyone please help with what the next steps should be in selling it and what companies to use?

First, can you post a picture of it in the package?

Well, post some photos. We love seeing photos of coins when someone is talking about it. Especially something like this.
Keep it in whatever packaging it is in. Hopefully the original packaging.
Submit it 'as is' to one of the big grading companies, such as PCGS, NGC, or ANACS.
Cross your fingers it's real cause it could be worth thousands.

Other things to emphasize:
Post photos of the tail in the best quality you can.
Do not take it out of the packaging.
Don't clean or actually touch it.
Is it with a cent? It should also have a 2000 cent with it.
Is it high grade?
Do you have the funds to submit it to a major grading company?

Yes post some pics, all the knowledgeable people here will be able to tell you if it's the "cheerios" dollar or a regular strike. Not all the dollars found in the cheerios boxes were the one with the "enhanced" tail feathers. If it is the rare one then by all means send it in to PCGS or NGC, they have all the info you need on their websites for submissions.

Cheers (or Cheerio!)

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for the insights-- yes it is in the original package, and yes it is still with the original penny that it came with. I have been trying to upload the pictures for the past few minutes and am having a hard time getting it to the size it is supposed to be.

Congrats if you got it.
After you verify if it is indeed the cheerios variety, you could send it in to an auction house that will take care of the TPG grading and selling for you.
I believe that GreatCollections does that, and I imagine other would as well.

Quite a find! IIRC, of the 5500 originally minted, fewer than 100 have come to light. With the "cheerios" reverse, they are worth quite a bit, although not nearly as much as when they were first discovered (4 figures now versus 5 figures for the first handful to sell). I belive that even if your dollar has the regular reverse, it is still worth having certified, as even regular ones fetch a decent premium over popping it open and getting a Coke at the 7-11!

Also, I believe one of our members tried submitting one of these to one of the grading companies, and it was sent back with a "genuine" grade... ostensibly because they were trying to keep the population artificially low. Anyone remember which company that was?

Anyway, keep us posted

We need good pictures to be sure, don't remove it from the package. Not all are the rare variety, but if your is then it is worth quite a bit.

Here is a link to help you identify it without removal from the package as you can only see the obverse.

We really need a close up of the area like this. If you look, there is a small amount of metal pointing out where the arrow is. That's called a die marker and identifies it as the rare coin. Alternatively, you could pop it out of the packaging and look at the tail feathers on the reverse HOWEVER I would not recommend doing that. The coin is worth significantly more in higher grades and untouched. If it shows the die marker, you should submit it to a good auction house, they would grade it and sell it for you. Unless you want to keep it.

Ha, forgot about not being able to see the reverse in the original packaging!
So you should be able to see the die marker if you can't get better pics to post or maybe upload a pic to google drive or somewhere where we can look at it. If you're pretty sure that the die marker is there then I would submit them either through PCGS or NGC. If you are just interested in selling it, then GreatCollections is a good way to go which someone else suggested, they will submit it and sell it for you.
Good luck!
