Italy 100 Lire  1955 to 1989

These coins, minted in stainless steel, not silver as Monique has assumed, generally are worth only a dollar or two US. Some of the earlier dates, before 1962, can bring catalog values of about $100, but only if in fully uncirculated condition. Dates after 1962 are generally not very valuable even in pristine condition.

Use our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means. It is an inflated value.

Dates with high catalog values in fully uncirculated condition are:

Mexico 50 Centavos  1992 to 2009

You have made a common mistake, PAJ. One that has happened before on CoinQuest. Your coin is actually from 1994, not 1894. Look closely at the date. Not only that, it is made from aluminum bronze, which can be easily mistaken for gold. In other words, it is a modern 50 centavos coin from the United States of Mexico (Estados Unidos Mexicanos). It is worth face value.
If you have one of these coins in absolutely, fully uncirculated condition, a keen collector might pay $1 or $2 US dollars to add it to their collection.

Bulgaria 1 Stotinka and 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 Stotinki  1962 to 1990

You have a nice coin from Bulgaria, Daniel. Between 1962 and 1990 the design stayed the same, with composition and size changing with denomination:

1 STOTINKA: brass
2 STOTINKI: brass
5 STOTINKI: brass
10 STOTINKI: nickel-brass
20 STOTINKI: nickel-brass
50 STOTINKI: nickel-brass

All these coins -- all denominations and all dates -- carry low values as follows:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Token: Egypt Magic Coin with Sphinx, Pyramids, and Pharaoh

These come in brass, non-precious white metal, and silver. They are modern (post 1948) novelty items sold to tourists. Those made of non-precious metal sell retail for a few US dollars. Silver 'magic coins' are worth their weight in silver.
If you do a Google search on 'Egypt magic coin' you will see that other patterns are used and, sometimes, the coins are stressed and beaten to look like they might be genuine ancient coins. They are not.

Medal: India Bombay 999 Silver Rounds

These are neat silver art rounds from India. They come in many different patterns and designs, and their size and weight varies from about 10 grams to over 50 grams. Their value varies with weight due to silver content.

The patterns we have seen are very nice. Requester Nikkabe asks about a coin with a design including the important Sikh symbol Khanda and Sikh founder Guru Nanak (shown in our secondary picture to the right). The example in our main picture (to the left) include Lakshmi (also spelled Laxmi) and Ganesha, both from Hindu traditions. The swastika, Hindu symbol of prosperity, appears on many Bombay 999 pieces. We have not been able to find Sikh designs on Bombay 999 coins, so Nikkabe's item may be somewhat rare, but we are not sure of that. The Hindu designs appear to be much more prevalent.

Lithuania 2 and 5 Litai  1991 to Date

These are neat coins from Lithuania. The earlier date, 1991, is not made of two metals, but is solid copper-nickel. The '2' and '5' inscriptions tell the denomination, and the cool mounted knight tells the coin is from Lithuania.

Values of these modern coins are low. Catalog values for all dates 1991 and higher are:

worn: less than $1 US dollar appproximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1

Philippines 5 Centavos  1937 to 1945

The US administered affairs in the Philippines from 1903 to 1935. The commonwealth formed after 1936 and the shield on the back of these coins changed from the prior years, although the front of the coin stayed the same.

1937, 1938, 1941:
worn: $1 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $6
fully uncirculated: $50

for coins dated 1938, divide the above values by 2

Germany Hesse Darmstadt 2 and 5 Mark  1875 to 1891

There were four Hesse states in the old German Federation. Only Hesse-Darmstadt issued coinage after the empire congealed in 1871. The coins on this page are those of Kings Ludwig III and Ludwig IV, with virtually indentical designs except, of course, for the kings' profiles. Coins of King Ernst are not covered here.

We present some typical catalog values in the listings below. As always on CoinQuest, you must apply the concepts outlined on our Important Terminology page to convert these (inflated) catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
