Bahamas Coinage 1966 to Date
There are about 3000 individual islands in the archipelao of the Bahamas. It is a British Crown Colony. Decimal coinage started there in 1966, and many of the designs are really quite interesting and well-done. The 10 cent coin has wavy edges, and the 15 cent coin is square. All others are round. Denominations range from one cent all the way to (are you ready?) 2500 dollars. The $2500 coins are 58 mm in diameter (an old US silver dollar is 38 mm) and made with 12 troy ounces of gold.

I have a few two dollar coins dated 1973 that appear to be proof coins. They have the image of Queen Elizabeth on the front and two ostriches facing each other on the back. What are they worth? - Peter Hardwick
Modern coins, including proofs, are worth their weight in silver. See silver content above. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Your coin is worth 10 cents in Bahamas. If you have a brilliant uncirculated coin a collector may pay 1 or 2 US dollars. - CoinQuest (Andrei)
I have a 1966 one cent how much can i get for it - Dan
It is worth 1 cent in the Bahamas. If it is fully uncirculated, you could sell it on eBay for $1 or so. - CoinQuest (Paul)
I have a 1973 bahama island coin collection with includes several coins.. How can I get these valued?
A good way to see what your coins are going for is to check the eBay sold listings. A reputable coin shop in your area can also tell you what you have and what the market value is. - CoinQuest (Todd)
I have been given a bunch of coins in it there is a 1984 Commonwealth of the bahamas 1cent coin. It appears to be gold in color. All I have found online look a copper color.
That coin is made of brass, which can have that golden look to it -- especially if the coin is in great condition and hasn't seen much (or any) circulation. - CoinQuest (Todd)
