Australia Silver Kookaburra Coinage  1992 to Date

The Australian government, like most modern governments, has figured out that it can make a ton of money issuing coins and selling them to collectors and investors. This 'kookaburra' series of silver coins is one example.

Kookaburra coinage is bullion coinage. That is, kookaburra silver coins are made of pure silver and are sold to people who want to invest in silver. Each coin features an image of the famous kookaburra bird, and these images change from year to year. The denomination and size of silver kookaburras vary from 1 dollar (1 troy ounce silver) to $150 (32 troy ounces silver).

United Arab Emirates 1 Fils  1973 to 2005

There is a fun little pun on these coins, at least in English. The palm trees on the reverse are date palms, and they are located just above the date on the coin! Oh yeah, we coin collectors sure have a lot of fun!

With regards to value, these are common, modern coins. The catalogs list a very generous value of 30 US cents for well preserved coins, which goes to show how you cannot always doubt catalogs when it comes to very common, modern issues.

India 1 and 10 Rupees (Mahatma Gandhi)  1948

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the pre-eminent political and ideological leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He pioneered satyagraha, defined as resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, a philosophy firmly founded upon ahimsa, or total nonviolence. This concept helped India to gain independence, and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He is often referred to as Mahatma Gandhi or 'Great Soul.'

Thanks to Wikipedia (what a terrifc web site!) for this important description of beloved Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. His likeness appears on 1 rupee and 10 rupees coins with his birth and death dates 1869 and 1948.

Germany 50 Pfennig  1919 to 1922

Hi Bobby -- Your aluminum coin catalogs for less than one US dollar. These coins were minted by Germany as the Weimar Republic after the end of the first World War.

The majority of the dates and mint marks of the series are worth $1 or $2 US dollars at most even in well preserved condition. In fully uncirculated condition, they might fetch $5 US dollars from a keen collector.

However some of these coins were minted in much lower numbers; for 50 pfennig coins in aluminum dated 1919 with a mint mark of D, E, G or J, multiply the above values by two.

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1895 to 1901

Thanks for your thorough description, Caley. Sure enough, we did not have this issue of the British penny in our database. Now it is here.

All the old pennies and half pennies from Great Britain make wonderful collectibles. They come from a time when a penny was *worth* something! But millions and millions were made, so their value today is not that high. Here is a run-down:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Bolivia Royal Cob Silver Coinage  1630 to 1750

If you look at our page on Spanish colonial coins [Press Here], you will see we discuss two main types of these fascinating collectibles: cob coins and milled coins. Cobs are rather crude-looking chunks of precious metal, stamped with a rough pattern to identify type and weight. Milled coins come later, after minting technology improved and are round and much better defined. There is a third category, or really sub-category of cobs, called royal cobs.

Malaysia Straits Settlements 1/2 and 1 Cent  1919 to 1932

Well that's cool. A square coin. Your coin is from the Straits Settlements, now known as West Malaysia, with its major city Singapore, on the Malay Peninsula of Asia. The name was changed to Malaya in 1939.

Great Britain issued coinage for the Straits starting in 1845 and continuing until 1935. The only square issues are the 1/2 and 1 cent coins of King George V. Here is what the catalogs say about them:

1/2 CENT
worn: $1 US dollars catalog value
