Sweden 10 Ore (Silver)  1909 to 1942
Sweden 10 Ore (Silver) 1909 to 1942

It's hard to miss the big number 10 on these Swedish ores. These coins are all minted in silver:

10 ORE: 0.019 troy ounces silver

Silver coins can never be worth less than the silver they contain. If silver were trading at, say, $20 US dollars per ounce, a 10 ore would be worth at least Base Value (BV) of 0.019 x 20 = 40 US cents. Look up the price of silver. It changes every day.

Coins in good condition, with good collector appeal, are worth more than base value, as follows:

10 ORE 1909 TO 1916
worn: BV + $1
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $40

10 ORE 1917 TO 1942
worn: BV
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $10

The values above are general values for the dates shown. If you get a coin catalog, you will find that there are a few special coins which have special characteristics, and are worth more. For instance, a 1936G with a 'short 6' catalogs at $20 in well preserved condition. Such varieties are beyond the scope of our CoinQuest forum.

Thanks, Jeronimo, for pointing out the gross errors that were on this page. It was one of our weaker efforts. The page is fixed now. We appreciate your time and diligence. Note that the coins you point out have patterns that are different than the one shown here, which is why we did not include them on this page. - CoinQuest (Paul)
