South Africa 1/2, 1, 2 1/2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 Cents (Van Riebeeck)  1961 to 1964

Afrikaners (including the Boer subgroup) are a Germanic ethnic group in Southern Africa. They consider Jan Van Riebeeck their founding father. His likeness appears on many South African coins.

Sorry, Danielle. Although your coin appears to be gold, and although there is a South African gold coin with Van Riebeeck's likeness, your coin with the ox cart is made of brass. It is a one cent piece.

Here is some data on this series of coins. The data applies to all dates. All have Van Riebeeck's portrait on the front and the inscription UNITY IS STRENGTH, but they have different designs on the back. In the listings below, BV means 'base value.' It is the value of the silver in the coin. Look up the current value of silver on web sites such as kitco.com, then multiply it by the troy ounces of silver in the coin to obtain BV.

US Morgan Silver Dollar  1878 to 1921

Hello Bianca -- You have a silver dollar designed by a man named George Morgan, so collectors call coins like yours Morgan Dollars. They are highly prized collectibles.

Your 1901O specimen is a 'common date' coin like most of the dates and mint marks in this series. 1921 is the most common of the common dates, as there were hundreds of millions of the 1921 coins made. Coins with better dates, not common dates, are listed below. They are more valuable.

India (East Company) Spiritual Tokens  1616 to 1839

When you find a copper coin with the inscription EAST INDIA COMPANY dated before 1839, usually with early dates such as 1616, 1717, 1818, and denominations ANNA, HALF ANNA, or RUPEE, the coin is not issued by the East India Company, but a modern spiritually oriented token recently manufactured and sold to tourists. These tokens generally include the likeness of different Hindu gods, as well as related spiritual symbols and caricatures.

These pieces are not coins per se, even though they contain valid denominations (anna, rupee, etc.) and a valid issuing agency (East India Company). They are instead Temple Tokens, Lebbo coins, or similar non-legal tender with religious or magical implications. They are readily collectible, and assembling a comprehensive set of these items would be a collecting challenge, but they do not carry very much value.

Albania 100 Franga Ari  1926 and 1927

What a great coin. And valuable, too! King Zog I, born Ahmet Muhtar Bej Zogolli, was the leader of Albania from 1925 to 1939. This beautiful gold coin shows his portrait on the front and an action-packed rendition of a charioteer on the back. Each coin contains almost a full troy ounce of gold (actually 0.933 troy ounces), and that makes the coin worth at least its bullion value. Coins in good collector condition command prices much higher than bullion value.

At the moment, gold is selling at about $1200 US dollars per troy ounce (check the Internet for the current value), so the base value (BV) is $1200. Premiums over BV run like this:

Ancient Greece (Phoenicia) Ba'alshillem II Fractional Shekels  401BC to 366BC

The Phoenicians are even today remembered as a maritime culture. Based around modern-day Lebanon, they traded with many other ancient civilizations, and established colonies as far west as on the Iberian peninsula. Ba'alshillem II was a Phoenician king of the city of Sidon, and his name is found on the coins abbreviated to a B - of course written as a Phoenician character - found above the galley on the obverse (front) of the coin.

Ba'alshillem's full name is known from an inscription ('B-l-shlm') written on the foot of a small statue of a child, which was found during an archaeological dig of the Bustan esh-Sheikh site. Click here to see a picture of the amazing statue.

Great Britain 2 Pounds (Commonwealth Games)  1986

Like most of the two pound coins issued lately by the UK, these coins come in various compositions. The pattern and the date are the same, but the metallic content varies between nickel-brass, silver, and gold. Not only that, the silver versions come in two purities: 92.5 percent pure (sterling silver) and 50 percent pure.

The value can't be less than Face Value (FV): 2 pounds in Britain. At current exchange rates, that is about $3 US dollars (but look it up to be sure).

World Valuable Coins (All Countries)  1948 to Date

Almost every coin dated after World War II is worth face value, nothing more. This applies to all coins from all countries worldwide, with very few exceptions. No circulating coins today contain gold or silver, although there are plenty of non-circulating coins that do. Non-circulating coins are often proof coins which are bought and sold in special packaging. However, most modern coins, even from exotic places, are basically worth face value except in a few special instances, explained below. Perhaps your coin is special, we hope it is.
