US Confederate Half Dollar  1861

Well, Heather ...

Either you have a very valuable coin, or you have one that is worth nothing. How's that for narrowing it down?!

During the Civil War, the Confederate (southern) States of America issued only two types of coinage: a one cent piece and a half dollar. (See our write-up on the one cent piece at this CoinQuest link.) They minted very few of each, so if you have a genuine, original CSA half dollar, you have a coin worth tens of thousands of US dollars today. Genuine CSA half dollars are so rare that the coin catalogs do not even list an estimated value! The coin in our main is a genuine piece.

Ceylon Sri Lanka 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 5 Cents  1870 to 1945

Check the date, Kelli. If your coin has King George VI, it can't be dated 1957. British colonies like Ceylon (Sri Lanka today) always carry the likeness of the reigning British monarch on the front. Copper coins from Ceylon with 1/4, 1/2, and 1 cent denominations date back to Queen Victoria. Then, whenever the monarch changed, so did the coinage. The common tie of all these coins is the reverse side, which has a circled palm tree design.

This page applies to copper coins with the palm tree. Some coins and some dates use other designs and metals (silver and gold), and this page does not apply to them.

These are modern coins made of aluminum. They carry low numismatic (coin collector) value as follows:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1

fully uncirculated: $5
Dates 1964 and 1971 are a little more rare than other dates and are worth a tad more than other dates.

India 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Rupee  1862 to 1947

Nice coin, Mickey. These old silver rupees from India represent an interesting series of coins, and many of them -- especially the older dates -- are valuable.

The coin in our picture is one of the earlier versions. Later coins changed monarchs (India was British until 1947) and reverse designs, but the basic coin was the same all the way from 1862 to 1947. You will see coins in this series as follows:

1/4, 1/2, and 1 rupee
Victoria Empress

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1895 to 1901

Thanks for your thorough description, Caley. Sure enough, we did not have this issue of the British penny in our database. Now it is here.

All the old pennies and half pennies from Great Britain make wonderful collectibles. They come from a time when a penny was *worth* something! But millions and millions were made, so their value today is not that high. Here is a run-down:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Spain Spanish Colonial 1/2, 1, 2, 4, and 8 Reales (Carolus III and IIII)  1772 to 1808

These coins are known as Spanish (Hispan) colonial coinage because they circulated freely in the many New World colonies of Spain. You can find essentially the same coins in Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru. The coins from Mexico carry the distinctive Mo or oM mint mark -- a small 'o' set over a large 'M'. Coins from Chile bear an So or oS mint mark for Santiago, Chile. There are many other mint marks, as explained below.

Ancient Greece Tetradrachm Gela Sicily  466BC to 413BC

There is a growing segment of numismatics (coin collecting) that specializes in ancient and medieval coinage. A surprising number of these coins still exist, and modern cleaning and conservation methods are revealing their beauty and wonder. You can actually hold coins from ancient Greece and Rome in your hand, and add old, old coins from Bible times, and even before, to your collection. Two of our favorite dealer sites for such coins are:
