Bermuda 10 Cents  1970 to Date

Bermuda makes a lot of nice-looking coins. Their designs, concentrating on wild life, are very beautiful. This 10 cent coin is made of copper-nickel.
As a modern coin made of non-precious metal, the value is very low, well under $1 US dollar per coin. If you have one in fully uncirculated condition, a collector might pay a dollar or two to add it to his or her collection.

Coin: 21488

Trinidad and Tobago 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 Cents and 1 Dollar  1966 to Date

That's a cool-looking coin, isn't it, Brian? Trinidad and Tobago are large islands off the coast of Venezuela in northern South America. They were under British rule until 1976. Their coinage bears a spiffy coat of arms supported by two neat birds (I am not sure what they are. What are they?)

All circulating coins from Trinidad and Tobago are modern and made of non-precious metals like bronze and copper-nickel. As such, they are worth face value. Collectors are usually willing to pay a few US dollars for nice-looking specimens.

US Baldwin Horseman 10 Dollar Gold (Fakes are possible)  1850 to 1857

All sorts of unusual gold coinage sprung up as a result of the famous California gold rush of 1849. One of the most famous coins to come out of this era is the Horseman (Vacquero) design by Baldwin and Company of San Francisco. It is an amazing coin and one that deserves special mention.

Genuine, original Baldwin Horsemen are extremely valuable. The coin catalogs quote values such as $60000 US dollars in average circulated condition and $95000 in well preserved condition. A publicized example in uncirculated condition realized $195000 in a Goldberg Auction.

India 1 Pice  1950 to 1955

The 3 lion design appears on most modern Indian coins. Although very pretty with plenty of eye appeal, just about all modern Indian coinage is worth very little. This is true for the 1 pice piece as well as anna, rupee, and paisa denominations.

The one pice coins catalog as:

COMMON DATES (all dates and mint marks except those called out below):
worn: less than $1 US Dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2

Belgium 5, 10, and 25 Centimes  1901 to 1931

The hole in the center, of course, is the main distinquishing feature of these old coins from Belgium. There are several variations on this theme, and we will attempt to cite them all for you. Just about all of these coins are not very valuable, worth a few US dollars.

First, there are two flavors for the inscriptions on these coins. One is Dutch: KONINKRIJK BELGIE; one is French: ROYAUME DE BELGIQUE. These inscriptions do not affect value except in a few rare cases (see below).

Token: Great Britain False Shekel  1750 to 1920

European interest in ancient coins started as far back as the mid-1700s and these forgeries of ancient Jewish shekels were soon pawned off to unsuspecting enthusiasts. When Darwin proposed that mankind evolved from lower life forms, rather than being created by God, new vigor entered the study of the Bible and ancient Jewish culture and, again, false coins produced tidy income for the ethically challenged. In more modern times, Jewish and Masonic influence caused false shekels to be manufactured for use as gifts and in ceremonies.
