It's not that surprising but some old prints of Harry Potter books can net you thousands of dollars if you're willing to part with your childhood reading material. Like with many collectors items, the price varies by edition and rarity.

According to the Independent, the most valuable Harry Potter books are first edition hardcovers of "The Philosopher's Stone" from 1997. In these books JK Rowling was credited as 'Joanne Rowling' and there were only 500 copies made, 300 of which became library books.

A find that that could be worth up to $50,000.

Whether you love him, hate him or have never heard of him, PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg) leads the YouTube charts. His 38 million subscribers is a full 15 million more than the second place YouTuber and he boasts more than 9 billion (with a 'B') total views.

That's going to make the guy some money. Even if the vast majority of his videos revolve around playing video games and yelling in that way he does.

BBC reported July 7 that PewDiePie made $7 million in 2014. The story went around like things do and some vitriol was thrown his way like it does.

To his great credit, PewDiePie uploaded a video responding to some of the anger he received about the large paycheck. It's surprisingly frank, very respectful and ultimately charming.

From the beginning:

"I just feel like it's not important to anyone and I just want to make entertaining videos"



To the end:

"Conclusion, it seems like the whole world cares more about how much money I make than I do myself."



This new Internet economy is still not something understood or even accepted by a great many people. Especially when new public figures like PewDiePie inspire flame wars and derision. It's refreshing to have a blunt response about money come from one of the Internet's biggest stars.

The Royal Canadian Mint announced the release of an extensive set of Star Trek coins being released over the next few months to mark the 50th Anniversary.

Most impressively though has to be the Starfleet-delta shaped coin. The coin has a crazy face value of $200 Canadian dollars! But it also happens to be minted in gold, so expect to pay way more than $200 if you decide to make a run at these coins. 

Other coins are minted in silver, like the USS Enterprise coin which is face-valued at $20:
