Hungary Ducat (Fakes are possible)  1731 to 1740

These gold ducats from Hungary are beautiful coins. The coins in this series, 1731 to 1740, contain 0.111 troy ounces of gold, giving them a base value (BV) of $128 US dollars at today's gold market.

Figure the current BV by multiplying the current gold 'spot' value by 0.111. For instance, if gold were at $1300 US dollars per troy ounce, the BV of this ducat would be 0.111 x 1300 = $144.

Collectors will pay more than BV when a ducat is in good numismatic (coin collector) condition. Here are rough values:

Belgium 5 and 10 Centimes  1861 to 1901

Nice coin. These coins were minted from 1861 to 1901 and there are a few *better dates* in the 5 and 10 centimes series. Fist we address the common dates, then list the better dates below.

Like most coins from Belgium, two sets of inscriptions are used:

French:
L'UNION FAIT LA FORCE
LEOPOLD PREMIER ROI DES BELGES

Dutch:
EENDRACHT MAAKT MACHT
LEOPOLD II KONING DER BELGEN

France 50 Centimes and 1 and 2 Francs  1931 to 1959

France issued coins with this pattern in three denominations and two metals: 50 centimes, 1 franc, and 2 francs denominations, and aluminum-bronze and aluminum metals. Most *common dates* of these old French coins carry little value, less than $1 US dollar in worn condition. If you can find one in fully uncirculated condition, the catalog value rises to $5 to $15. Your coin, sir or madam, dated 1941, is a common date.

These coins were minted in aluminum and aluminum-bronze, the latter sometimes mistaken for gold.

Token: World Belly Dancer Money

I've seen one of these before! This is a little dangling token for a woman's dress meant to look like a gold coin. They are used widely throughout the Islamic world and India, almost exclusively for two purposes: belly dancers use them to look pretty and produce a jingling sound, and at weddings they are often used for dress decoration. The hole is from where it used to be fastened unto a dress, belt, veil, or other piece of clothing.

I do not recognize the design used for the side shown in the first image, but the side shown in the second image looks to imitate an Algerian silver budju of the late 19th century. This is a common design to imitate - I've seen another version with a mirror image of that design on the other side of the token.

US Missing Clad Layer (Minting error)  1965 to Date

Nowadays not many people remember when silver coins actually circulated in America. Up to 1964, our silver coins ~ dimes, quarters, half dollars ~ were made of actual silver. A full 90 percent of each coin was pure silver. The remaining 10 percent was copper. Then, in 1964, the Federal Government decided, with the rest of the world (pretty much), to do away with precious metal in coins and strike them out of cheap alloys. Coins minted from 1965 until now have zero silver content. Dimes, quarters, and half dollars are made of copper with a thin clad layer of nickel.
