Jamaica 5 Dollars 1971 to 1994
Jamaica issued these coins in many sizes and many metals. The first year of issue, 1971, uses a different portrait of Norman Manley. Of all the issues, only a few are made of silver and are therefore valuable above face value. The others are worth face value. A collector might be willing to pay a few US dollars for a superb non-silver specimen.
This page shows only those coins made of silver. To compute value, look up the current price of silver (at, for instance, www.kitco.com) and multiply by the silver weight shown below.
