Although relatively modern and made of copper-nickel and nickel-brass, several of these coins carry decent collector value when in good condition. Here are lists of approximate catalog values. You must apply the concepts on our Important Terminology page to convert these inflated catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Earlier coins contain the likeness of King George V and later coins contain the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II. Coins after 1939 are worth much less -- about one-third the values shown below.
