US Lincoln Cent (Penny)  1909 to Date

Most people think that old fashioned wheat-backed Lincoln cents (pennies) are very valuable. In fact, millions and millions of them were minted and all but a handful carry no significant value. When worn or in average circulated condition, most wheaties are worth a few cents each. Even in fully uncirculated condition, coins dated after 1933 are worth a few US dollars each. For most coins before 1934, here is how the catalog values run:

Germany 5 Rentenpfennig and 5 Reichspfennig  1923 to 1936

These coins were minted in aluminum bronze, and the picture shows an uncirculated specimen. Isn't it something?

In fully uncirculated condition a collector would probably pay in excess of $30 US dollars for a common date 5 rentenpfennig. With wear, that value goes down sharply. An average circulated coin would bring, perhaps, $1 or $2. Reichspfennig coins are worth less than rentenpfennig, and these sell for less than $1 when average circulated. Well preserved examples might reach $5 or a bit more, while uncirculated examples catalog at $20 and up.

France Liard  1643 to 1715

Just about all of these old liards from Louis XIV (L XIIII) are pretty worn and beat up. If you find one in decent condition, it is a valuable piece. The worn ones are not too valuable.

There are dozens and dozens of mint marks and 'privy marks' associated with these coins. To get a thorough listing, you must consult a coin catalog. (Most libraries have them.) The crowned L mint mark that requester Hicks mentions is from Lille and is generally more rare than other mint marks. The catalogs list Mr. Hicks' coin at $60 US dollars in average circulated (VF-20) condition.

Spain 5 and 10 Centimos  1877 to 1879

Spain issued a 5 centimos and a 10 centimos coin with the same pattern in 1877, 1878, and 1879. Both these coins are worth less than $1 US dollar in worn condition, but it they are well preserved like our picture, figure a catalog value around $20. Use our Important Terminology link to understand what 'catalog value' means.

worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $20 fully uncirculated: $45

Coin: 3108

Japan 50 Sen  1922 to 1938

Collectors like these coins for two reasons: (1) they have a nifty pattern with two phoenix birds, and (2) they are made out of silver. The silver gives a Base Value (BV) and the nifty-ness gives value over and above BV.

To compute BV, multiply the current price of silver by 0.115, the number of troy ounces of silver in each coin. Today silver is trading at about $16 US dollars per troy ounce, so BV = 0.115 x 16 = $1.85 US dollars. Tomorrow silver will be at a different price, so be sure to look it up.

India (British) 1/2 and 2 Annas  1939 to 1947

Britain ruled India until 1947. The East India Company issued many interesting coins and did not stick religiously to standard circular shape. Most of the British East India coins show the reigning British monarch on the front with rupee, mohur, and anna denominations on the back. The square pattern in our picture was used on the 1/2 and 2 anna denominations during the mid 20th century. You can see an example of a wavy-edge 1 anna coin at this CoinQuest link.

Austria Winterspiele Innsbruck 100 Schilling  1976

There are several different patterns of these 100 schilling coins issued during the Winter Games in Innsbruck. We have shown a popular pattern, but there are about 6 others. All coins contain 0.492 troy ounces of silver, and that is where they get their value. At current silver prices, the coin's value is about $8 US dollars. If silver goes up, the price will be more. Look at web sites such as kitco.com to track the current price of silver.

Australia Penny and Half Penny  1911 to 1939

Australia issued these coppers from 1911 to 1939. After that, kangaroos appear on the back of penny and half penny coins.

Most of the pre-39 pennies and half pennies are low in value. Below is a list of approximate catalog values for just about all the dates in the penny and half penny series. Special *better date* coins appear on this page after the common date values.
