Great Britain Shilling  1953 to 1970

These are modern coins made of copper-nickel and are worth very little. A collector will spend a few US dollars to add a pristine specimen to his or her collection. Other than that, the value is less than $1.
Some coins have a Scottish coat of arms with one lion, while others have the English arms with three lions. Value is the same for both.

Mexico 5000 Pesos  1988

The snake, caught in the beak of an eagle, perched on a cactus, growing on a stone, sitting in a lake, is the national symbol of Mexico. It's an homage to the description that the god Huitzilopochtli according to legend gave a group of natives of the perfect place to found their new capital. The story goes that they wandered for hundreds of years before founding what is now known as Mexico City.

Timmy, these nice, large coins are not made from silver, but from cupro-nickel; an alloy of copper and nickel that might walk like silver and quack like silver, but it's not a du-... err, silver.

US Morgan Silver Dollar  1878 to 1921

Hello Bianca -- You have a silver dollar designed by a man named George Morgan, so collectors call coins like yours Morgan Dollars. They are highly prized collectibles.

Your 1901O specimen is a 'common date' coin like most of the dates and mint marks in this series. 1921 is the most common of the common dates, as there were hundreds of millions of the 1921 coins made. Coins with better dates, not common dates, are listed below. They are more valuable.

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. The one described by Dallas is low value. 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.

The interesting part is the small star on the reverse side of the coin. It contains numbers or letters, and certain coins with certain numbers or letters are quite rare. You need a magnifier to clearly see the starred numbers, which gives the date of issue. The 1957 date is the date of authorization, when the coin was authorized by the Spanish government to be produced. All coins carry the 1957 date.

Ancient Rome Claudius II Gothicus 'CONSECRATIO' Antoninianus  270AD

Claudius II, commonly known as Claudius Gothicus, was Roman emperor for a couple years, from 268 to 270 AD. He fought successfully against Germanic and Gothic tribes. He died of a plague while preparing for another war campaign against the Vandals, and the Roman Senate quickly deified him. The 'DIVO CLAUDIO' inscription on the coins means 'Deified Claudius' or 'Saint Claudius'. These coins were struck in the name of Claudius II for about a year after his death.

The obverse shows Claudius wearing a radiate crown. The Roman coins didn't explicitly state the denomination, and this radiate crown meant that coin was an antoninianus. The reverse shows either an eagle or an altar. Values for both reverse designs are about equal:

Great Britain 6 Pence  1838 to 1887

Hello Ashley -- Look at the beautiful coin in the picture. It is from eBay seller wybrit and is in fully uncirculated condition with very pleasant gold-green toning. Wybrit has this coin at auction starting at $450 US dollars. That is a lot of money, but it is a lot of coin. It is certified by PCGS, the premier numismatic grading service. Your specimen, with stains and nicks, will be worth substantially less, especially since it is not certified by a numismatic service. The amount less depends on the serverity of the stains and nicks.
