Australia Penny and Half Penny  1911 to 1939

Australia issued these coppers from 1911 to 1939. After that, kangaroos appear on the back of penny and half penny coins.

Most of the pre-39 pennies and half pennies are low in value. Below is a list of approximate catalog values for just about all the dates in the penny and half penny series. Special *better date* coins appear on this page after the common date values.

PENNIES (COMMON DATES BEFORE 1932)
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1895 to 1901

Thanks for your thorough description, Caley. Sure enough, we did not have this issue of the British penny in our database. Now it is here.

All the old pennies and half pennies from Great Britain make wonderful collectibles. They come from a time when a penny was *worth* something! But millions and millions were made, so their value today is not that high. Here is a run-down:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Bolivia Royal Cob Silver Coinage  1630 to 1750

If you look at our page on Spanish colonial coins [Press Here], you will see we discuss two main types of these fascinating collectibles: cob coins and milled coins. Cobs are rather crude-looking chunks of precious metal, stamped with a rough pattern to identify type and weight. Milled coins come later, after minting technology improved and are round and much better defined. There is a third category, or really sub-category of cobs, called royal cobs.

Malaysia Straits Settlements 1/2 and 1 Cent  1919 to 1932

Well that's cool. A square coin. Your coin is from the Straits Settlements, now known as West Malaysia, with its major city Singapore, on the Malay Peninsula of Asia. The name was changed to Malaya in 1939.

Great Britain issued coinage for the Straits starting in 1845 and continuing until 1935. The only square issues are the 1/2 and 1 cent coins of King George V. Here is what the catalogs say about them:

1/2 CENT
worn: $1 US dollars catalog value

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.

Australia Half Penny and Penny  1938 to Date

Like all British coins, the reigning monarch appears on the obverse (the 'heads' side). King George VI appears in our picture, but your coin might be different. Queen Elizabeth appears after 1952.

Except for the penny dated 1946, all Australian pennies in this series are worth face value or just a tad more. The 1942 specimen in our example might sell for $1 or $2 US dollars because it is in nice shape and has acquired some attractive blue toning. Some collectors (like me!) really enjoy toned coins and are willing to pay a little more to get them. But not much more. BTW, most collectors do *not* prefer toning.

Mexico 1000 Pesos (Juana de Asbaie)  1988 to 1992

Token: Great Britain Halfpenny (Commerce)  1814

This is one of the many, many different tokens issued around the 1800s in Great Britain. It was struck in areas where there was a shortage of small change. It's a so-called 'non-local' issue, which means that it wasn't struck in a single shire or county.

The dies used to strike these tokens were used for a long time beyond the point where they had become worn and dull. It's common to find flatly struck specimens of the tokens. This means that you can have a token with sharp, brilliant detail in some areas of the design, while other parts of the design are completely flat and without detail. The token in our image is very well preserved, but the face of Britannia is flatly struck.
