A 12-year old boy won a lottery ticket worth more than $20 million in a first bid.
On Monday, the New York Post reported that the boy’s ticket won the lottery in a bid that was worth more then $60 million.
The lottery began in 2009 and the winning ticket is now worth more to the public than the city of New York has spent on police, firefighters and the U.S. Postal Service.
The boy, whose name was not released, was a high school senior when he won the ticket, according to the Post.
The ticket, which is made of gold, is among the most valuable in the world and was made with 1.2 million of the rarest of precious metals, the Post reported.
The winning ticket will be donated to a New York City museum.
The Post reports that the ticket was given to the boy by his father who was the winner of the winning lottery ticket.
The father said he is not sure if he will keep the ticket because he is only 12 years old.
