Italy 100 Lire  1955 to 1989

These coins, minted in stainless steel, not silver as Monique has assumed, generally are worth only a dollar or two US. Some of the earlier dates, before 1962, can bring catalog values of about $100, but only if in fully uncirculated condition. Dates after 1962 are generally not very valuable even in pristine condition.

Use our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means. It is an inflated value.

Dates with high catalog values in fully uncirculated condition are:

Rhodesia (Southern, Zimbabwe) Half Penny and Penny  1934 to 1954

Zimbabwe in Africa was a British colony until recently. It was called 'Southern Rhodesia' until 1965. The British coinage from 1934 to 1954 bears the name of monarchs George VI and Elizabeth I. There are a few dates minted in bronze. Most are minted in copper-nickel. Values are the same regardless of metallic composition.

Collectors like these coins because they come from a place most people have not heard of. Typical catalog values run like this:

Token: US Aladdin's Castle Arcade

Arcades are prevalent today, but they are certainly not new. The computer-generated, full-immersion, nerd's paradises are new, but not arcades in general. And they have used metallic gaming tokens for a long time.

The token in the picture was sent to CoinQuest by Brandon. A member of the World Internet Numismatic Society identified it for us as a token from the now-defunct Aladdin's Castle chain of gaming arcades. If you stop by a gaming blog, you will see that many *older* gamers (25 and older!), remember Aladdin's Castle with great fondness. Apparently Aladdins's Castle has been taken over by Namco, who is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man this year.

Sweden 10, 25, 50 Ore (Gustav VI)  1962 to 1973

That's the monogram of Gustav VI, King of Sweden between 1950 and 1973. These coins are made of copper-nickel and most of them, with few exceptions, are worth very little:

10, 25, AND 50 ORE (MOST DATES)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $2

The exceptions are listed below. The values are for coins in well preserved condition.

Canada 1 Cent Commemorative  1967

Yo, Ape -- Only if your coin is in superb numismatic (coin collector) condition, like the one in our picture, would a collector be willing to pay a premium for it. Maybe $1 or $2 US. Otherwise your coin is worth face value. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

Coin: 2270

Korea (South) 100 Won  1970 to Date

These are neat coins from South Korea made in copper-nickel. In worn and average circulated condition, they are very common and worth essentially face value (a few cents US). As condition improves and dates get older, they start to pick up a little value.

100 WON 1970 TO 1974
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $35
100 won dated 1973 are very common; divide these values by four

South Africa 1/2, 1, 2 1/2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 Cents (Van Riebeeck)  1961 to 1964

Afrikaners (including the Boer subgroup) are a Germanic ethnic group in Southern Africa. They consider Jan Van Riebeeck their founding father. His likeness appears on many South African coins.

Sorry, Danielle. Although your coin appears to be gold, and although there is a South African gold coin with Van Riebeeck's likeness, your coin with the ox cart is made of brass. It is a one cent piece.

Here is some data on this series of coins. The data applies to all dates. All have Van Riebeeck's portrait on the front and the inscription UNITY IS STRENGTH, but they have different designs on the back. In the listings below, BV means 'base value.' It is the value of the silver in the coin. Look up the current value of silver on web sites such as kitco.com, then multiply it by the troy ounces of silver in the coin to obtain BV.

Fiji 50 Cents and 10 Dollars  1980

Fiji issued two special coins to commemorate its 10 years of independence in 1980:

- a 50 cent piece in copper-nickel
- a 10 dollar piece in silver (0.457 troy ounces)

These are popular issues. If you have the silver $10 piece, first compute BV (base value) by multiplying the current price of silver by 0.457. For instance, if silver is selling at $15 US dollars per troy ounce (be sure to look it up), then BV = 0.457 x 15 = $6.85.
