Spain Spanish Colonial 1/2, 1, 2, 4, and 8 Reales (Carolus III and IIII)  1772 to 1808

These coins are known as Spanish (Hispan) colonial coinage because they circulated freely in the many New World colonies of Spain. You can find essentially the same coins in Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru. The coins from Mexico carry the distinctive Mo or oM mint mark -- a small 'o' set over a large 'M'. Coins from Chile bear an So or oS mint mark for Santiago, Chile. There are many other mint marks, as explained below.

Great Britain Farthing, Penny and Half Penny (Victoria)  1860 to 1894

Hello Chastity,

You have a half penny from Great Britain. This series runs during Queen Victoria's long reign, starting in 1838 and ending in 1901. Different versions of the coin bear the queen's likeness at various stages of her life, but the inscription always says Victoria DG (DG = Dei Gratia = by the grace of God). This page applies farthings, pennies and half pennies dated between 1860 and 1894 that look like the coin shown.

FARTHING: 19 mm diameter

Medal: France Marriage of Napoleon  1810

Marie Louise was Archduchess of Austria, Princess of Hungary and Bohemia, Duchess of Parma, Piacenza and Guastalla, Empress of the French, and Queen of Italy (whew!). She married Napoleon in 1810. Numerous medallions were produced to celebrate the royal marriage. This is the most popular pattern.

These medallions were produced in various sizes and various metals. The most common is a 40 mm version in bronze, but there are also 27 mm and 15 mm bronze medals, as well as 32 mm silver medals, and 15 mm gold medals. Curiously, the size and composition do not matter very much when it comes to value, as the medals made with precious metal tend to be smaller than the bronze medals. What does matter is overall state of preservation and eye appeal.

US Morgan Silver Dollar  1878 to 1921

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.
