It's hard to miss the big numbers 10, 25 and 50 on modern Swedish ores, starting in 1920. The 'tails' side changes over the years, but the big 10, 25, and 50 stick. We've shown several examples of the non-numeric side in the graphics below.
These coins are all minted in nickel-bronze. If your coin is dated before 1943, it may be made of silver. Click to this link for our page on silver 10, 25, and 50 ore.
Value-wise, the modern nickel coins all carry very low value, less than one US dollar to a few US dollars. If you have a coin which is fully uncirculated and in beautiful condition with lots of eye appeal, a collector may pay up to $10 to add it to his or her collection. But that would be a very special coin.
Some of the earlier dates, before 1926, are worth slightly more -- about $2 worn and $20 in fully uncirculated condition.
If you can find a 1921 or 1925 10 ore in fully uncirculated, the catalogs report a value over $100.. With the 50 ore coins, the following dates tip the catalogs over $200, but only when in fully uncirculated condition:
These dates of 50 ore coins are worth about $10 in average circulated condition.
