Switzerland 1 and 2 Rappen  1948 to 2006

Helvetia is the female personification of Switzerland, officially Confederatio Helvetica, the 'Helvetic Confederation'. Her image on the coin is the traditional one. A non-traditional rendering by ccdck appears in our secondary image. From Wikipedia: 'Helvetia is the Roman name for an ancient region of central Europe occupying a plateau between the Alps and the Jura Mountains. Helvetia corresponded roughly to the western part of modern Switzerland, and the name is still used poetically.'

Australia Dollar (Mob of Kangaroos)  1984 to Date

That's a neat design for a coin. Even though a 'mob of kangaroos' may be unusual for us regular folks, it's commonplace Down Under. This pattern has been used on circulating Australian dollar coins since 1984. After 2000 the portrait of the Queen changes somewhat. These coins are worth face value: one dollar in Australia. If you can find a nice, uncirculated example, a collector or animal lover might pay $2 or $3 US dollars for it.

Great Britain Irish Halfpenny Liberty Security Reverse  1795

This is a rare item associated with colonial times in America. It is a 'mule,' wherein front and back dies are mis-matched in an unnatural way. The front is an Irish halfpenny and the back is a 'Liberty and Security' token minted by William Lutwyche in Birmingham.

The coin in our picture comes from Stack's where it sold for $280 US dollars in a 2005 auction. We think that price is low, and the coin is actually worth much more.

Brazil 1000 Reis (400th Anniversary)  1932

With only 56,000 minted, compared to 695,000 of the 2000 reis minted, this 1000 reis commemorative sells for a little more than the 2000 reis. The trouble is, however, that the 2000 has silver content, while the 1000 is made of aluminum-bronze.

Here are some approximate catalog values for the 1000 reis coin:

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $5
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $25

Token: Great Britain Crown Token Jewelry  1908

Look at the magnificent 1902 British crown further down the page, Steven. Click the 'Full Info' button if you can't see it. A genuine 1902 crown is worth about $200 US dollars. Unfortunately, you don't have one of those. With a date of 1908 and misspelling of EDWARDVS, you have a piece of costume jewelry worth a few cents. Too bad!

Genuine EDWARD VII crowns were minted only in 1902. The look-alike jewelry is dated 1908. As far as I know, the jewelry version is made of base metal, not genuine gold or silver. That makes it worth very little.

Germany 2 Mark  1957 to 2001

The Federal Republic of German (the old 'West Germany') issued 2 mark coins between 1957 and 2001. These coins are made of copper nickel and carry the stylized imperial eagle on the reverse, with a bust of a famous person on the obverse ('heads' side). The famous person changes over the years, but the imperial eagle stays the same.

As a modern coin made of non-precious metal, these are not worth very much. The earlier dates are somewhat in demand, and there are a few special dates as shown below.

Brazil 2000 Reis (400th Anniversary)  1932

Brazil had been colonized for 400 years in 1932. That's King John III of Portugal on the front of the coin. He reigned from 1521 to 1557.

The coin contains 0.127 troy ounces of silver, so that sets the minimum value it can be worth. At today's silver price of about $21 US dollars per troy ounce, that's a Base Value (BV) of 0.127 x 21 = $2.60 US dollars.

If you have a coin in good condition, it is worth more than BV because collectors want to add it to their collections. Here are approximate values:

China Chekiang (Cheh Kiang) Province 20 Cents, 50 Cents, Dollar  1896 to 1899

One of the best ways to get ripped off in coin collecting is to buy Chinese coins from someone you do not know. We know Baldwin's, the world-renowned numismatic dealer in London. The 1 mace and 4.4 candareens (20 cent) coin in our main picture comes from Baldwin's, and it sold for $2200 US dollars in a 2011 auction. Genuine 7 mace and 2 candareens (one dollar) coins are tremendously valuable, selling for tens of thousands of US dollars.
