US Gold Buffalo  2008 to Date

Just about all collectors of US coins enjoy the famous 'buffalo nickel' of 1913 to 1938. The design of this coin is amazing. There is observable dignity and strength in the portrait of the Native America, and the buffalo (or bison) on the back is unparalleled in modern coin design.

The same Indian/buffalo design has been used in modern times on breath-taking gold bullion coinage. Most of these gold coins are really dazzling. They come in various sizes:

$5: 0.10 troy ounces gold

Germany (Bohemia and Moravia, Czechoslovakia) 50 Haleru  1940 to 1944

Bohemia and Moravia were, and are now, parts of Czechoslovakian lands. But in the last 1930s and into the 1940s the German Nazi regime occupied and eventually invaded them. These coins come from the time of the German occupation.

With most resources going to the German war effort, there was not a lot of quality metal to make coins. So these coins are minted in zinc, and zinc coins deteriorate quickly. (Note: US one cent coins today are made of zinc.)

There were four denominations minted: 10, 20, and 50 haleru, and 1 koruna. This page applies only to the 50 haleru coins, as shown in our photo.

Medal: Great Britain Royal Humane Society  1830 to 1900

The Royal Humane Society is a British charity which promotes lifesaving intervention. It was founded in England in 1774 (MDCCLXXIV) as the Society for the Recovery of Persons Apparently Drowned, for the purpose of rendering first aid in cases of near drowning. Physician William Hawes (1736 - 1808) began publicizing the power of artificial respiration to resuscitate people. For a year he paid a reward out of his own pocket to any one bringing him a body rescued from the water within a reasonable time.

New Zealand 3 Pence  1933 to 1965

Those are two patus, a weapon and pounding club used by the Māori, the indigenous people of New Zealand, on the reverse side of this three pence coin. The obverse, or 'heads' side, has the British ruling monarch, since New Zealand is a parliamentary state of Great Britain.

These coins were minted in 50% pure silver between 1933 and 1946. After that it was non-precious copper-nickel.

The coin in our picture is in beautiful uncirculated condition, and CoinQuest thanks SivesaCoins, a respected eBay seller, for use of the photo. It's a beauty!

East Africa 1/2, 1, 5, and 10 Cents  1907 to 1964

It is hard to miss coins with holes at the center. This series of cents has got 'em!

Great Britain issued coinage for part of its empire in the eastern part of Africa from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. Coins marked East Africa circulated in areas where Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Somalia are today. The coins were minted in various metals, including copper-nickel, bronze (shown), and aluminum.

While a few *key dates* are present, most of the coins, including 1 cent, 5 cents, and 10 cents, are not worth very much unless they are in fully uncirculated condition. Taking them as a whole, the approximate catalog values for the *common date* coins are:
