Canada New Brunswick Half Penny and Penny Tokens 1843 to 1854

Hello, Ken

I believe your coin is in the picture ... or at least close to it. Yours is dated 1843. This one is 1854 with a slightly different design.

New Brunswick minted these tokens -- half penny tokens and penny tokens -- in 1843 and 1854. All coins carry essentially the same value, so the discussion below applies.

worn: $30
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $300
fully uncirculated: $1000

Except for the stains, the coin in the picture is in decent shape. The details are sharp, which indicates not much wear, but the stains bring value down. I'd guess it would sell retail about $80 US dollars, and a coin dealer would pay about $40 for it. Without the stains, the value would be higher.

Coin: 635 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

if brooze it would be proof. 400
According to the Standard Catalog of World Coins, even the proof issues were struck in copper. You are right though, in that $400 US dollars would not be an unlikely price for such a coin. - CoinQuest (Chris)
