I assume you're referring to a U.S. cent and not a British penny, since the terms are often confused.

The value of any coin depends on its date, condition, and mint mark just for starters. There are a lot of other more subtle variations but those are usually the big three. The U.S. has struck cents since 1793 at Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco so you have a huge number of possibilities to choose from. As examples, here are links to cent values at Numismedia, just one of many sites providing numismatic price guides. I scanned through them and found many dozens of coins meeting your criterion.

Large cents:

Flying Eagle:

Indian Head:


LincolnsAssuming you are referring to the current Lincoln cent, it would have to be one of the following :

1909-S VDB

1914-D in at least AU grade

1922 NO D in at least VG grade

1955/55 doubled die obverse

These are the 4 main coins that would most likely reach the $500 price tag.

What wheat pennies are valued more than one cent?

All wheat pennies, regardless of year are worth at least 3 cents if the date is readable. Some wheat pennies though, are worth quite a bit more. For instance, the 1909 S VDB penny is worth several hundred dollars even in worn condition and so is the 1914 D penny. However, a 1909 S VDB penny in pristine condition could be worth thousands of dollars. In general, the older the wheat penny the more valuable it is. For example, most wheat pennies dated in the 1940s-1950s aren't that valuable, but wheat pennies dated in the teens and twenties are worth a lot more.
