Mexico 8 Reales  1824 to 1897

Hi Deb -- You probably have a well-worn 8 reales coin from the old Republic of Mexico.

These coins contain 0.786 troy ounces of silver. So that sets the minimum value they can attain. For instance, if silver is selling at $12 per troy ounce (look it up for today's price at kitco.com), the minimum price is 0.786 x 12 = $9.40.

Coins with the liberty cap and starburst pattern were minted in smaller denominations than 8 reales. In fact, denominations of 1/2, 1, 2, and 4 reales look the same, only smaller. The denomination appears explicitly on the coin in the place where '8R' appears on the 8 reales. Look for '1/2R', '1R', '2R', or '4R' on your coin and, if you have one, click to this appraisal page.

Colombia 10 and 20 Centavos  1897

Nice coin, Jon. Miss Liberty (Libertad) is on the front and the coat of arms of Colombia (with a condor) is on the back. These coins are made of 66.6 percent pure silver. They contain:

10 (DIEZ) CENTAVOS: 0.054 troy ounces silver
20 (VEINTE) CENTAVOS: 0.107 troy ounces silver

These coins can never be worth less than their silver content, so even a totally smashed coin (scratched, stained, cleaned, mutilated) is worth its weight in silver. But, collectors pay premiums for nice looking specimens:

US Massachusetts Cent and Half Cent  1787 and 1788

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts authorized production of these coins during 1786. The coins themselves are dated 1787 and 1788. They are highly prized collectibles. You can find worn ones on eBay, but those in better condition are reserved primarily by big time coin dealers and auction houses.

Note the arrows in the eagle's talons. The coins in our pictures have the arrows in the eagle's left talon. If you can find one with the arrows in the eagle's right talon, and if it is a genuine Massachusetts coin (see more info below), then it is very rare.

Token: India Ram Darbar Temple Ramatanka

We received an inquiry via e-mail about this unusual coin. Shailender sent us the photograph at the left, but no other information except that it is an ancient coin from India.

This page provides background for the coin and then a table of approximate values. Values vary widely with authenticity and metallic composition.

The coin is related to Hindu temples, i.e., it is a 'Temple Token', with various Western spellings such as Ram Tanka, or Ramatanka, or Ram Tonka. They were made as charms or tokens to carry around for good luck, and to catch blessings from the gods. They come with designs of Hindu gods and religious ceremonies being carried out in honor of them.

Medieval Germany (Baden) 1/3 Thaler (Christoph I)  1519

The coin in our picture is the nicest one in our professional coin database. It sold in 2003 for 6600 Swiss Francs (about $6600 US dollars) by an auction house that is no longer in business. What a great coin! It shows Christoph I, Margrave of Baden (CRISTOF D G MARCHIO BADENSI) from 1475 to 1515.

Looking at the current catalogs and pricing sites, I think their estimates are somewhat low. Favoring actual auction results over prices from published catalogs, we get these values:
