Sweden 1, 2, and 5 Ore  1874 to 1907
Sweden 1, 2, and 5 Ore 1874 to 1907

Another nice Swedish coin. Brodrafolkens Val means 'welfare of the brother nations' and it was changed by King Oscar II in 1906 to read Sveriges Val or 'welfare of Sweden.'

As to value, many of these coins carry very little value especially in worn condition, but rise nicely when condition improves. Collectors are always looking for eye-pleasing coins to add to their collections. Worn out, damaged, or unappealing coins are passed over.

If you are a serious coin collector, there are several interesting minting varieties in this series, and values go up accordingly. For instance, an 1879 1 ore with lengthened legend catalogs over $300 in extra fine condition, and an 1894 2 ore with a closed 4 catalogs above $100 in extra fine condition.

For general guidance, consider these approximate catalog values. Coins must be free of all damage, like spots, scratches, cleanings, nicks, gouges, and stains to qualify for these values.

1 ORE
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $8
fully uncirculated: $35
coins dated before 1881 are more rare and worth two to four times these values

2 ORE
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $25
coins dated before 1879 are more rare and worth two to four times these values

5 ORE
worn: $2 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $6
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $100
coins dated before 1880 are more rare and worth two to four times these values

These are all catalog values. Actual values will be lower. Use our Important Terminology link to understand how catalog value works.
