Italy 100 Lire  1955 to 1989

These coins, minted in stainless steel, not silver as Monique has assumed, generally are worth only a dollar or two US. Some of the earlier dates, before 1962, can bring catalog values of about $100, but only if in fully uncirculated condition. Dates after 1962 are generally not very valuable even in pristine condition.

Use our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means. It is an inflated value.

Dates with high catalog values in fully uncirculated condition are:

Malta Grano with Maltese Cross  1703 to 1780

Malta is a small Mediterranean island south of Sicily. Many of their coins bear a Maltese cross. The Maltese cross is the cross symbol associated with the Order of St. John since the middle ages, shared with the traditional Knights Hospitaller and the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and by extension, with the island of Malta.

These coins bear the Maltese cross on the front, and various patterns on the back. The date appears in the corners of the cross.

It takes an expert to figure out these coins. We have asked experts to consider GR's coin, and here is what they said: [PRESS HERE] for World of Coins.

World Brockage (Minting error)

When you find a coin that looks like it could be an error, the first question you must ask is whether the error occurred at the mint, or after the coin left the mint. Coins with errors at the mint are valuable. Coins with errors after the mint are damaged and worth zero.

Linda sent us this image of her cool brockage error coin from the Bank of Upper Canada. You can see an error-free example at this CoinQuest link. The intriguing thing about brockage errors is that one of the patterns is reversed, i.e., it is a mirror image of a normal pattern. Obviously, this error occurred at the mint, so Linda's coin is valuable.
