Swedish 25 and 50 ore coins were minted in silver from 1910 to 1941. About halfway between these dates, in 1920, the same denominations with different patterns were minted in nickel-bronze. Of course the coins minted from precious metal are more valuable than those minted in non-precious metal.
For the silver coins 1910 to 1941:
25 ORE: 0.047 troy ounces silver
50 ORE: 0.096 troy ounces silver
Silver coins must always be worth at least their silver value. If silver were trading at, say, $20 US dollars per troy ounce, the Base Value (BV) of a 50 ore coin would be 0.096 x 20 = $2. Look up the price of silver. It changes every day.
In addition to base silver value, collectors will pay premiums to add nice-looking coins to their collections.
25 AND 50 ORE COINS:
average circulated: BV + $1
well preserved: BV + $3
fully uncirculated 25 ore: BV + $20
fully uncirculated 50 ore: BV + $50
The values above apply to all dates except those shown below, which are *better date* coins. Values shown are for coins in well preserved condition.
25 ORE well preserved
1910 to 1929: BV + $10
50 ORE well preserved
1911 to 1927: BV + $20
1929 to 1933: BV + $15
