US Trade Dollar Pattern (fake)  1873

Sure enough, Chris, that's a Trade Dollar pattern coin form 1873. If it were genuine, it would be worth a bundle. Bowers and Merina (now Stack's Bowers) had one at auction a few years ago, and it sold for more than $2000 US dollars.

Very likely you have a replica coin like the one in the picture from eBay seller ixwisdom. These are worth a few dollars.

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1895 to 1901

Thanks for your thorough description, Caley. Sure enough, we did not have this issue of the British penny in our database. Now it is here.

All the old pennies and half pennies from Great Britain make wonderful collectibles. They come from a time when a penny was *worth* something! But millions and millions were made, so their value today is not that high. Here is a run-down:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

US Liberty Head or Mercury Dime  1916 to 1945

The name of your coin is 'Winged Liberty Dime,' but most people think Miss Liberty is really the Roman god Mercury, associated with the fleet-footed Greek messenger, Hermes, so they call these coins Mercury Dimes.

MERCURY DIMES 1916 TO 1931
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value

Token: US Anti-Slavery 'Am I not a Woman and a Sister?'  1838

'Am I not a Woman and a Sister?' appeared on abolitionist tokens that have circulated in America and Great Britain. At the end of 1837 the American Anti-Slavery Society, located at 143 Nassau Street, New York, commissioned the firm of Gibbs Gardner & Co. of Belleville, N.J. to strike these copper tokens. These tokens show significant relations between abolition and the fight for equal rights of women. There were also 'Am I not a Man and a Brother' tokens, but the female version drew much more attention.

Greece 20 Drachmai (Athena)  1973

That is the goddess Athena on the front of this neat coin. She was the Greek virgin goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature. She was the daughter of Zeus; her birth is unique in that she did not have a mother. Instead, she sprang full grown and clad in armour from Zeus' forehead. (Ouch!)

On the back is the mythical Phoenix rising from ashes.

These are modern coins made of copper-nickel. They are worth small amounts:

US Kellogg 20 Dollar Replica (Counterfeit)  1854

Sometimes these replica coins are plated with gold, which makes them look quite spiffy. But, alas, they are still fakes (replica, reproduction, and copy are polite words) and worth about zero.

Genuine coins are absolutely beautiful and worth a ton of money. You can see our page on Kellogg and Company gold pieces at this link.

Side-by-side comparisons of real and fake coins are often useful. The image below shows small deviations between the patterns, although the deviations are quite pronounced upon close inspection. Sometimes counterfeit coins are so accurate and precise only a professional authenticator armed with microscopes and other sophisticated devices can tell the difference. In the United States it is illegal to own counterfeit coins unless they are stamped with the word COPY. Variations of this replica coin sometimes have COPY or a small encircled C or R.

Albania 1/2 Lek  1930 and 1931

Neat coin, FW! It is made of nickel and was issued only in 1930 and 1931. The catalog values below are typical of what to expect for 'normal' coin channels such as eBay, but we have seen some big-time dealers sell these for much more than catalog. To reach high value, the coin must be fully uncirculated and perfect in every way, like the one in our picture.

Here are the normal catalog values

worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
