Spain 5, 25, and 50 Pesetas  1957
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. 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.

ALL COINS EXCEPT THOSE DESCRIBED BELOW:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $5

All coins carry the 1957 date. The interesting part is the small star on the reverse side of the coin. It contains two numbers, and certain coins with certain numbers are quite rare. You need a magnifier to clearly see the starred numbers. On some coins the star is replaced by the letters BA, and these, also, are rare.

The list below gives approximate catalog values for special coins that have star numbers as listed. Values quoted are for coins in well preserved condition.

5 PESETAS
star numbers 58, 61, 66: $3
star number 63: $15
letters BA in place of star: $150

25 PESETAS
star number 58: $10
star number 61: $35
star number 71: $5
star number 73: $60
star number 75: $3
letters BA in place of star: $60

50 PESETAS
star number 58 with UNA LIBRE GRANDE written on edge: $400*
star numbers 68, 69: $800
star number 70: $100
star numbers 72, 73, 74: $50
star number 75: $10
letters BA in place of star: $60

*A 50 pesetas with star number 58 and UNA GRANDE LIBRE written on the edge is very common and worth less than $1 US dollar.

Coins with star numbers that are not called out above are worth less than $1 US dollar.

If you have a coin in superb quality it is a good idea to check it out with a professional coin dealer or a knowledgeable collector.

I have a 1957 5 Ptas with 75 inside the star. What is it's value? - Herb Canell
Herb, as noted in the article: These coins are made of copper-nickel and are worth only face value, less than $1 US dollar. A collector might pay a few US dollars to add a fully uncirculated specimen to his or her collection. Some *special dates* are called out but your date of 75 is not listed since it is not a special date, but a common date. - CoinQuest (Chris)

I have a 50 ptas with a 59 in the star what's the value - Jo
Since 59 is not listed above as a special date, your coin is worth less than $1 US dollar. - CoinQuest (Paul)

i have a 25 ptas with a 64 just wondering what it might be worth - Jo
please read the page above - CoinQuest (Paul)

I have a 1957 coin with 66. Wondering what it is worth. - Luke
please read the page above - CoinQuest (Paul)

The star on mine says 58, and there is something written on the side, but is worn, part of it has a * on it, the front and back is very clear and defined though it is tarnished is this worth anything?
There are about 20 million of these coins out there with '58' in the star. Almost all of them read 'UNA - GRANDE - LIBRE' on the edge. As mentioned on the page above, very, very few coins read 'UNA - LIBRE - GRANDE' instead. Maybe with the right angle of light and a magnifying glass, you can tell which it is. A collector would only buy one of the rare coins at a high sum if there was no doubt about the edge lettering. - CoinQuest (Chris)

I have 50 PTAs in the star is clearly written number 60 what does that worth ??? I didn't find value. Luke
Value is given on this page under the heading ALL COINS EXCEPT THOSE DESCRIBED BELOW: - CoinQuest (Paul)
