Hello Bianca -- You have a silver dollar designed by a man named George Morgan, so collectors call coins like yours Morgan Dollars. They are highly prized collectibles.
Your 1901O specimen is a 'common date' coin like most of the dates and mint marks in this series. 1921 is the most common of the common dates, as there were hundreds of millions of the 1921 coins made. Coins with better dates, not common dates, are listed below. They are more valuable.
These are amazing coin. As always, we are grateful for Chard's permission to use their coin photos. Isn't it a beautiful coin? Please click to the TaxFreeGold [Press Here] page about these coins, which gives good background information and technical specifications.
There are four gold coins which look like the picture:
1937 HALF SOVEREIGN: 18 mm diameter, 0.1177 troy ounces gold
Much of India was under British rule between the mid-1700s and the mid-1900s. During this time many different types of coins were minted with denominations pice, anna, rupee, and mohur. This page covers the silver British India coinage of King George V. These coins show the king on the front and a wreathed and circled denomination and date on the back. Other patterns were used also, and copper coins as well, but this page applies only to silver coins that look like our main picture.
It is hard to miss coins with holes at the center. This series of cents has got 'em!
Great Britain issued coinage for part of its empire in the eastern part of Africa from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. Coins marked East Africa circulated in areas where Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Somalia are today. The coins were minted in various metals, including copper-nickel, bronze (shown), and aluminum.
While a few *key dates* are present, most of the coins, including 1 cent, 5 cents, and 10 cents, are not worth very much unless they are in fully uncirculated condition. Taking them as a whole, the approximate catalog values for the *common date* coins are:
These coins are minted for the city of Liege (now Belgium) by its ruler at the time, cardinal and prince-bishop John Theodore of Bavaria. The catalog values run like this:
1 LIARD - weight: 3.1 grams, diameter: 23 mm
worn: $2.5 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $50
2 LIARD - weight: 6.3 grams, diameter: 27 mm
Australia has been minting these neat 50 cent coins since 1966. Back then, they were round, but soon thereafter, in 1969, they took on the 11-sided shape:
50 CENTS DATED 1966: Round, made of 0.342 troy ounces of silver
50 CENTS DATED 1969 TO 1997: 11-sided, made of copper-nickel
These are large, interesting coins, and collectors enjoy them a lot. All of the 11-sided coins are worth only face value when they are worn or circulated, but some uncirculated specimens carry good numismatic (coin collector) value as explained below.
These coins show the beautiful Charminar monument and mosque, built in 1591AD in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. The landmark is a global icon of Hyderabad, listed among the most recognized structures of India. It appears on these coins, and on other coins of Hyderabad, notably those that look very similar but do not have the explicit denomination called out on the reverse. You can read about those at this CoinQuest link [Press Here]. This page addresses Hyderabad coins with the numeric denomination on the reverse.
It is the breath-taking scarlet ibis that appears on Trinidad and Tobago's $5 dollar coins. Both the bird and the coin are very striking.
These coins were minted between 1971 and 1982, with 1972 and 1982 as 10- and 20-year anniversaries. Some coins are made of silver, and some are made of copper-nickel. The silver ones, of course, are more valuable. But even the lowly copper-nickel composition gets some attention from numismatists (coin collectors), perhaps because of the scarlet ibis. Mintages are held artificially low, and this tends to drive the price up a bit.
