Portugal 40 Reis  1811 to 1825

These 40 reis coins, colloquially known as 'patacos', were issued by King Joao of Portugal between 1811 and 1825. It is very difficult to find well preserved examples, and condition means a great deal to value. The 1815 date is rare and there are a few other nuances described below. Here are typical catalog values:

COMMON DATES
worn: $7 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $60
well preserved: $165

Kuwait 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Fils  1961 to 2011

Chelsea has submitted a 100 fils coin from Kuwait. All modern Kuwait coinage looks quite similar, so the trick is in figuring out what denomination you have. The obverse of these coins shows a ship with two dates below it - one from the Gregorian calendar on the left and one from the AH (Anno Hegirae) calendar on the right. Chelsea's coin has the dates '١٤٠٣ ١٩٨٣,' which translates to '1403 - 1983.'

The reverse is where you find the denomination. Inside the circle you will find the number (for Chelsea's coin, this is the '١٠٠' or '100') and below that is 'فلس' or 'fils.'

Token: Mexico Gold Fantasy Coin  1865

Hello, Dina -- Mexico did not issue any gold coins during 1865. Maximiliano had just taken over as emperor and he issued centavos and pesos in silver, but nothing in gold. Your coin, instead, is a 'fantasy piece' sold as a novelty or wedding coin in gift shops and tourist destinations. You can see gold coins of Mexico, as well as your fantasy piece, on the Worldwide-Numismatics.com web site.
These sell on eBay for less than $1 US dollar each. They probably have 22 karat gold plating, but the amount of gold in each piece is negligible. Value of a single coin is less than $1.

Coin: 12728

Germany 10 Reichspfennig and Rentenpfennig  1923 to 1936

Your coin is made of aluminum bronze, la Tomo, and I am assuming it is a reichspfennig, not a rentenpfennig. Both coins look the same and both were minted in 1924.

Between the World Wars the Weimar Republic of Germany issued several pfennig and mark coins that are sought by collectors today. They are made from aluminum-bronze, and have the gloomy 'DEUTSCHES REICH' on the obverse, with six stalks of grain forming a cool triangle above the date on the reverse.

Token: US Bonnie and Clyde Bullet Car Interstate Batteries  1987

Well, here is an interesting token. It was produced by the Interstate Battery Company in 1987 with a picture of the infamous 'bullet car' driven by murdering gangsters Bonnie and Clyde when they met their fateful death in 1934

Usually at CoinQuest we get values for coins and tokens by finding auctions where they have been bought and sold on the open market. This is not too difficult, as we have several professional tools at our disposal. However, we have been unable to find this token during our research. It is even absent from the comprehensive Token Catalog. This fact works in the token's favor, i.e., it is somewhat rare.

Italy 1 Lira  1922 to 1935

Hello Chet -- This is an interesting nickel coin from a mintage point of view. The design is kinda nice, too. Much stronger, in my opinion, than the 'picture drawing' designs we see on modern US coinage. (Please forgive my rant!)

There were millions of 1 lira coins minted in 1922, 1923, 1924, and 1928, so they are worth small amounts of money today:

1 LIRA DATED 1922, 1923, 1925 AND 1928
worn: less than $1 US dollars
average circulated: $3
