France 20 Francs  1852

This nice coin, containing 0.1867 troy ounces of gold, is the only 1852 20 francs with inscription LOUIS-NAPOLEON BONAPARTE. There is an 1852 silver 5 francs coin with the same inscription. This page applies only to the gold 20 francs.

To evaluate, first compute the base value of the gold in the coin. For instance, if gold is selling at $1200 US dollars per troy ounce (look it up, it changes every day), then BV = 0.1867 x 1200 = $224. Once you have BV, the catalog values run like this:

New Zealand Shilling  1933 to 1965

Your coin is modern, Chris. It is worth face value. The same reverse design goes back to 1933, but the portrait changes over the years according to the British Monarch: George V, George VI, and Elizabeth. Some of the early dates carry numismatic (coin collector) value. In fact, if you can find a proof version of this coin, it is worth big bucks: 100s of US dollars. Proof coins are special coins minted solely for collectors; they do not enter circulation.

Circulated coins from this series are worth small amounts: a few dollars at most for all dates. Uncirculated specimens, however, can carry substantial value if old enough. Here is what the catalogs say about this coin when in uncirculated condition:

Token: US Denver Mint Souvenir

Sir or Madam -- You have a modern token or medallion from the Denver Mint. It is worth a few US dollars. From the Coin Doctor we learn:

'The date 1789 is the year of the start of the United States Treasury. The token you have was made to accompany mint sets from the 1980's to 1999. There are two types, one says the Philadelphia Mint and the other says The Denver Mint. The new dollar coins replaced the Treasury tokens in the 2000 mint sets.'

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1902 to 1910

The thing that is intriguing about your inquiry, Kimberly, is that you indicate 'little or no wear' for the condition of your coin. That's great. Most old copper pennies are worn to a frazzle or have strong spots, stains, and other damage. Since your coin is in good shape it will carry good numismatic (coin collector) value.

Here are approximate catalog values that apply to all the coins in these series:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Mexico 1 Peso  1970 to 1983

These 1 peso coins are made of copper-nickel, so they are worth very little when in circulated condition, much less than $1 US dollar per coin.

Coins that are in fully, absolutely uncirculated condition are sought by collectors. Some collectors will usually pay a few US dollars for such a specimen.

Now there is also a subtle variation that adds value to this coin. This is the kind of stuff that gets collector juices flowing.

Pakistan 1 Pie  1951 to 1957

These are modern coins from Pakistan that are worth, for the most part, face value. That is, they are worth 1 pie in Pakistan.

There are two exceptions that can bring the value up:

1. Coins dated 1953 catalog around $5 US dollars in average circulated condition
2. Coins that are fully uncirculated with any date are worth a few US dollars

Coin: 14091

South Africa 1/2, 1, 2 1/2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 Cents (Van Riebeeck)  1961 to 1964

Afrikaners (including the Boer subgroup) are a Germanic ethnic group in Southern Africa. They consider Jan Van Riebeeck their founding father. His likeness appears on many South African coins.

Sorry, Danielle. Although your coin appears to be gold, and although there is a South African gold coin with Van Riebeeck's likeness, your coin with the ox cart is made of brass. It is a one cent piece.

Here is some data on this series of coins. The data applies to all dates. All have Van Riebeeck's portrait on the front and the inscription UNITY IS STRENGTH, but they have different designs on the back. In the listings below, BV means 'base value.' It is the value of the silver in the coin. Look up the current value of silver on web sites such as kitco.com, then multiply it by the troy ounces of silver in the coin to obtain BV.
