Spain 5, 25, and 50 Pesetas 1957 | 5 spain 50 25 pesetas lion eagle shield ribbon coat man hawk nickel falcon king la por una head star 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. The one described by Dallas is low value. 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.

The interesting part is the small star on the reverse side of the coin. It contains numbers or letters, and certain coins with certain numbers or letters are quite rare. You need a magnifier to clearly see the starred numbers, which gives the date of issue. The 1957 date is the date of authorization, when the coin was authorized by the Spanish government to be produced. All coins carry the 1957 date.

The list below gives approximate catalog values for coins dated 1957 and the starred issue number as listed. Values quoted are for coins in well preserved condition (better than average circulated condition).

1957 5 PESETAS
issue numbers 58, 61, 66: $3 (58 inside star)
issue letters BA: $150 (BA inside star)

If your coin is not in the lists above, it is probably a common coin worth very little. However, there are other varieties not listed here. 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.
