South Africa Silver 2 Rand (Union Building)  2013

You know, GT, here at CoinQuest we are basically collectors at heart. This is why it irks me when governments issue coins and then purposefully limit production to drive prices up. That's what South Africa did with this nice-looking 2013 2 rand coin. Unfortunately, it happens all the time -- all countries do it. Yecch.

And in the advertisements for this coin, they even try to capitalize on Nelson Mandela's death by saying he lay in state inside the Union Building. Double yecch.

Greece Kapodistrias Lepton, 5, 10, and 20 Lepta, and 1 Phoenix  1828 to 1831

These are valuable coins. The one in our main picture (upper left) comes from Kuenker in Osnabruck where it sold for 1600 euros (about $1800 US dollars) during a 2013 auction. Values can go even higher.

1 PHOENIX

Token: Great Britain (Tristan Da Cunha) 60th Coronation  2013

It is basically impossible to keep up with the thousands of modern coins, tokens, and medals produced by every country, region, and territory around the globe. This is probably Debs' coin, but it might not be. There were hundreds of Elizabeth coronation items produced.

The coin in our picture (really a token, not a legal tender coin) comes from Tristan Da Cunha, 'TDC' on the coin. Tristan Da Cunha is a small island in the south Atlantic Ocean. About 300 people live there. It is part of the British Overseas Territories.

Germany (Schwarzburg Rudolstadt) Thaler  1858 to 1867

You have a nice coin, Robyn. It is a thaler from the old German State of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, made out of 0.536 troy ounces of silver. Friedrich Gunther ruled Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt from 1807 to 1867, a long reign for a king. His mother was the actual regent until 1814. The edge of the coin bears the inscription GOTT MIT UNS (God with us) in German.

The design of the coin changes slightly over the years, as shown in our pictures. The main picture, with front and back (upper right) is the 'normal' version bearing the reverse inscription EIN VERINSTHALER XXX EIN PFUND FEIN. A special anniversary issue (B) in 1864 has ZUR FEIER 50 JAEHRIGER REGIERUNG. Some reverses have a decorative circle around the double-headed eagle (A).

Russia 1, 2, 3, and 5 Kopeks  1867 to 1917

This is likely your coin, Bruce. It is an old 1 kopek piece from the Russian Empire. There are 2 and 3 kopek coins which look the same but have a 2 or 3 in place of the 1 above 'kopek.'

Catalog values start around $1 tp $2 US dollar for all three denominations when the coins are in worn condition, but they rise nicely as the coins are in good shape. The coin in our picture is in average circulated condition. Here are the stats:

1 KOPEK (1867 to 1916, 21 mm diameter)

Germany 50 Pfennig  1919 to 1922

Hi Bobby -- Your aluminum coin catalogs for less than one US dollar. These coins were minted by Germany as the Weimar Republic after the end of the first World War.

The majority of the dates and mint marks of the series are worth $1 or $2 US dollars at most even in well preserved condition. In fully uncirculated condition, they might fetch $5 US dollars from a keen collector.

However some of these coins were minted in much lower numbers; for 50 pfennig coins in aluminum dated 1919 with a mint mark of D, E, G or J, multiply the above values by two.

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.

Spain 5, 25, and 50 Pesetas  1957

The 1957 5, 25, and 50 pesetas coins from Spain are ones that can get collector juices flowing. The vast majority of these coins are very common, low-value pieces. These coins are made of copper-nickel and are worth only face value. A collector might pay a few US dollars to add a fully uncirculated specimen to his or her collection.

ALL COINS EXCEPT THOSE DESCRIBED BELOW:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
