Brazil 10, 20, 50 Centavos and 1 and 2 Cruzeiros  1956 to 1961

Brazil has gone through several monetary reformations over the past few decades. This one, from 1942 to 1957, uses 100 centavos in 1 cruzeiro. Coins of the period use several designs, and the design shown is common to 10, 20, and 50 centavos, as well as 1 and 2 cruzeiros. These are all modern coins made of non-precious metal (aluminum and copper-nickel). They are worth very little.

Great Britain Shilling  1953 to 1970

These are modern coins made of copper-nickel and are worth very little. A collector will spend a few US dollars to add a pristine specimen to his or her collection. Other than that, the value is less than $1.
Some coins have a Scottish coat of arms with one lion, while others have the English arms with three lions. Value is the same for both.

Medal: Great Britain Coins of the Birmingham Mint

The Birmingham Mint, a private coin producer founded in Birmingham, UK, in 1794, turned out currencies for more than 100 governments as well as coin blanks, collector medals, and tokens for the vending industry. In 2003 the BBC published a piece 'The Birmingham Mint Goes Bust.' That's too bad.

The mint produced several modern sets of gorgeous coins and sold them to collectors worldwide. Often these came carefully packaged and displayed. You can find them on eBay and other Internet auction sites.

Angola (Africa Portuguesa) 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2 Macuta  1762 to 1860

The Portuguese explorer Diogo Cao discovered Angola on the west coast of Africa in 1482. A Portuguese colony existed there until 1975. The globe design, common for the coins of Portugal, shows on small denomination coins known as macuta. There are other Angolan coins with the macuta denomination, but this page applies only to coins with the globe shape.

Various spellings of names of Portuguese rulers appear on the coins, as follows:

Joseph 1750-1777 (JOSEPHUS)

Spain 5, 25, and 50 Pesetas  1957

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.

Mexico 8 Reales  1824 to 1897

Hi Deb -- You probably have a well-worn 8 reales coin from the old Republic of Mexico.

These coins contain 0.786 troy ounces of silver. So that sets the minimum value they can attain. For instance, if silver is selling at $12 per troy ounce (look it up for today's price at kitco.com), the minimum price is 0.786 x 12 = $9.40.

Coins with the liberty cap and starburst pattern were minted in smaller denominations than 8 reales. In fact, denominations of 1/2, 1, 2, and 4 reales look the same, only smaller. The denomination appears explicitly on the coin in the place where '8R' appears on the 8 reales. Look for '1/2R', '1R', '2R', or '4R' on your coin and, if you have one, click to this appraisal page.

US Seated Liberty Dollar  1840 to 1873

Hi Alex -- Apparently you have a genuine 1847 seated Liberty silver dollar without a mint mark, which is one of the more common dates.

If Alex's coin had no problems, i.e., it did not have the scratches and nicks as described, but was a typical, problem-free 1847 SL dollar, it would catalog about $300 US dollars in worn condition. With the damage, Alex, I am sorry to report you are probably down around $100 catalog value. Be sure you understand what 'catalog' means. Look in our Important Terminology definition (link at upper left).
