Brazil had been colonized for 400 years in 1932. That's King John III of Portugal on the front of the coin. He reigned from 1521 to 1557.
The coin contains 0.127 troy ounces of silver, so that sets the minimum value it can be worth. At today's silver price of about $21 US dollars per troy ounce, that's a Base Value (BV) of 0.127 x 21 = $2.60 US dollars.
If you have a coin in good condition, it is worth more than BV because collectors want to add it to their collections. Here are approximate values:
One of the best ways to get ripped off in coin collecting is to buy Chinese coins from someone you do not know. We know Baldwin's, the world-renowned numismatic dealer in London. The 1 mace and 4.4 candareens (20 cent) coin in our main picture comes from Baldwin's, and it sold for $2200 US dollars in a 2011 auction. Genuine 7 mace and 2 candareens (one dollar) coins are tremendously valuable, selling for tens of thousands of US dollars.
Nice coin, Malika. It is from a short period of French history known as First Restoration. King Louis XVIII is depicted. Values of these coins are high. Here is a summary. Most coins have common dates and mint marks, but there are a few special ones. We quote values for the common coins first, then call out the specials. Values for the specials are for problem-free coins in average circulated condition. Problems such as scratches, cleanings, scrapes, spots, stains, nicks, and gouges lower value substantially
The full inscription on these coins (or technically, tokens) should read 'WÜRTT. OBERAMTSSTADT' around the hand with the cross in its palm, and HALL at the bottom. The other side reads 'KLEINGELD' at the top and 'ERSATZMARKE' at the bottom, with the date to the left and right of the numeral, and the denomination of pfennig abbreviated to 'PF.' just below.

Struck in a number of different denominations, and matching sizes, these modern Russian 1, 2 and 5 all look alike. Except, of course, for the large numeral on one side. The flower also changes subtly in style. The coins are struck in nickel-plated steel.
This page applies only to coins that look like our picture, with the large double-headed eagle on one side. Russia struck many other types of these coins to commemorate different events. These commemoratives are not included here.
The coin in our picture comes from Westfalische Auktions gesellschaft in Arnsberg, Germany where it sold for 55 euros (about $75 US dollars) in a 2014 auction. This gives a good idea about how much these coins are worth.
These are one-twelfth thalers from the old German State of Hannover. Wilhelm IV ruled there between 1830 and 1837. Catalog values for these coins run like this:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
Other Prussian thalers show only King Wilhelm I, but this one shows Queen Augusta as well. There were 1000000 coins minted and many were saved in celebration of the king and queen coronation. This means there are plenty for today's collectors, and that keeps the price low, as follows:
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $100
The coin contains 0.536 troy ounces silver, so it can never be worth less than silver value.
These 'new sheqel' coins have been produced in Israel since 1986. They come in copper-nickel composition and in nickel-clad steel. As modern coins made of non-precious metal, they are worth very little. Collectors pay $1 or $2 US dollars to add uncirculated specimens to their collections.
