Argentina 5, 10, 20, and 50 Centavos  1957 to 1961

That's Miss Liberty (LIBERTAD) on the front and a wreathed denomination (5, 10, 20, or 50 centavos) on the back. These coins are made of steel with a coating that contains nickel. They are worth face value in Argentina.
Collectors will buy these coins for their collections. When they do, they will pay a few US dollars for fully uncirculated specimens. All dates and denominations are roughly equal in value. The 1961 20 centavos is a slight bit rare, so a fully uncirculated coin might sell for $3 to $4.

Palestine 5, 10, and 20 Mils  1927 to 1947

The League of Nations granted Great Britain a mandate to govern Palestinian territories (the Bible Land of Canaan) in 1923. The mandate lasted until 1948 when the Jewish state of Israel declared its independence on the day before the British mandate was to expire.

Under the auspices of the British-lead Palestine Currency Board, 59 different coins were minted for circulation in Palestine during the period from 1927 through 1946. Each coin is tri-lingual, bearing legends in three languages: English, Arabic, and Hebrew. The 5, 10, and 20 mils denominations have a hole at the center. Other denominations have no hole. The 5 mils coins are minted in copper, while the 10 and 20 mils coins are minted in copper-nickel.

Spain Spanish Colonial 1/2, 1, 2, 4, and 8 Reales (Carolus III and IIII)  1772 to 1808

These coins are known as Spanish (Hispan) colonial coinage because they circulated freely in the many New World colonies of Spain. You can find essentially the same coins in Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru. The coins from Mexico carry the distinctive Mo or oM mint mark -- a small 'o' set over a large 'M'. Coins from Chile bear an So or oS mint mark for Santiago, Chile. There are many other mint marks, as explained below.

East Africa 1/2, 1, 5, and 10 Cents  1907 to 1964

It is hard to miss coins with holes at the center. This series of cents has got 'em!

Great Britain issued coinage for part of its empire in the eastern part of Africa from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. Coins marked East Africa circulated in areas where Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Somalia are today. The coins were minted in various metals, including copper-nickel, bronze (shown), and aluminum.

While a few *key dates* are present, most of the coins, including 1 cent, 5 cents, and 10 cents, are not worth very much unless they are in fully uncirculated condition. Taking them as a whole, the approximate catalog values for the *common date* coins are:

Switzerland 20 Francs  1883 to 1896

You have a beautiful gold coin, Hani, and it is valuable like all gold coins. Don't try to clean or polish it. That always ruins the value.

The coin in the picture comes from Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles. CoinQuest thanks the Goldbergs for the use of their picture. They have sold it for $350 USD US dollars, a good price for a nice, uncirculated 1894 coin in a PCGS numismatic slab. Most of the coins in this series command high prices when they are in superb numismatic condition. They fall lower, however, when worn, scratched, or heavily circulated.

US Confederate Half Dollar  1861

Well, Heather ...

Either you have a very valuable coin, or you have one that is worth nothing. How's that for narrowing it down?!

During the Civil War, the Confederate (southern) States of America issued only two types of coinage: a one cent piece and a half dollar. (See our write-up on the one cent piece at this CoinQuest link.) They minted very few of each, so if you have a genuine, original CSA half dollar, you have a coin worth tens of thousands of US dollars today. Genuine CSA half dollars are so rare that the coin catalogs do not even list an estimated value! The coin in our main is a genuine piece.

Tokens like the one pictured sell for a few US dollars on eBay. A superb specimen in fully uncirculated condition might sell to a collector for $5 or so. If you have one to sell to a coin dealer, the dealer will probably offer you less than $1.
