Spain 5, 25, and 50 Pesetas  1957

The 1957 5, 25, and 50 pesetas coins from Spain are ones that can get collector juices flowing. The vast majority of these coins are very common, low-value pieces. These coins are made of copper-nickel and are worth only face value. A collector might pay a few US dollars to add a fully uncirculated specimen to his or her collection.

ALL COINS EXCEPT THOSE DESCRIBED BELOW:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1

Medieval Great Britain (England) Quarter Noble (Edward III)  1361 to 1369

From Wikipedia: The Noble was the first English gold coin produced in quantity, having been preceded by the Gold penny and the Florin earlier in the reigns of King Henry III and King Edward III, which saw little circulation.

The coins on this page are quarter nobles. Full nobles and half nobles use other patterns. Quarter nobles weigh between 1.4 and 1.9 grams.

The face value of a noble was six shillings and eight pence (written 6/8), which was equivalent to eighty pence or one-third of a pound sterling. The weight was changed from issue to issue to maintain this value until 1464 when the value was increased. Throughout the history of this denomination there are many varieties of inscriptions, mint marks, and to some extent, design.

Canada Dollar (Confederation Constitution)  1982

These nice dollars from Canada are worth, well, a dollar. They are made of nickel. Without silver content, their value stays at face value. If you have one in superb condition, and collector might pay twice face or so.

US Peace Dollar  1921 to 1935

The two *good dates* in the Peace dollar series are 1921 and 1928:

PEACE DOLLAR DATED 1921: $100 in average circulated condition
PEACE DOLLAR DATED 1928: $400 average circulated

Except for the 1921 and 1928 dates, the remaining coins in the Peace dollar series are generally worth their basic bullion value, plus a premium to account for buyer demand. 1922 and 1923 are the most common dates.

As the price of silver goes up, Peace dollars gain more and more value. Of course if silver runs downward, so do Peace dollars. A decent rule of thumb for common date silver dollars is to first take the price of silver (found on web sites such as kitco.com in US dollars per troy ounce), multiply it by 0.773, which is the number of troy ounces of silver in a US silver dollar, to get the base value (BV). For instance, if silver is selling at $20 per troy ounce, the base value is 0.773 x 20 = $15.46. Once you have the BV, add a collector premium to that number to get a retail value. The collector premium varies with condition, as follows:

South Africa 3 Pence  1925 to 1960

I like toned coins. If I were looking for a South Africa 3 pence for my collection, I would pay more for the specimen in the picture because is has spiffy rainbow toning. Over the years this silver coin has picked up impurities from the atmosphere and those impurities have reacted with the surface to create coloring effects. However, I am in the minority. Most collectors like their silver coins blast white, or completely untoned. Dem guys don't know what dey's missin'.

Great Britain Countermarked Coinage  1760 to 1820

At first glace the coin in our picture, a beautiful one from respected eBay seller GK-Coins in London, looks like a normal Spanish 8 reales. And so it is, almost ...

The small indented feature at the center of the 'heads' side (really called the obverse side of a coin) is known as a countermark. The Bank of England needed more coins than they had on hand in the late 1700s and early 1800s, so they simply punched their countermarks into readily available Spanish coins. Many of the countermarks use the oval design shown, but there are other shapes also, including circles and rectangles with clipped corners.

Hungary Denar  1503 to 1696

This extremely long-lived series of coins actually starts even earlier and goes even later than our title indicates. We have attempted to group together all coins of the same design, the same material, approximately the same inscriptions, and the same weight and size unto this page.

The coins discussed here all have several things in common. One side (the obverse) features a shield of 4-fold or 2-fold arms with a center shield of Austria in the center. The other side (the reverse) features a seated Madonna holding a child, probably baby Jesus.
