Panama 1/10, 1/4, and 1/2 Balboa  1930 to 1996

Panama issued large silver coins with several fractional denominations between 1930 and 1996. The patterns on these coins are all very similar. It is easy to get confused about which coin is which. We will try to explain.

This page applies to 1/10, 1/4, and 1/2 balboas. You can see our appraisal for the 1 balboa coin, which is much bigger, at this CoinQuest link. The 1/10 balboas read VN DECIMO DE BALBOA, the 1/4 balboas have annotation VN CVARTO DE BALBOA and the 1/2 balboas MEDIO BALBOA.

Portugal 40 Reis  1811 to 1825

These 40 reis coins 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 for all dates except 1815:

worn: $8 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $75
well preserved: $200

If you have the rare 1815 date, multiply the values above by three. Further, note that there are two designs for the crowned globe on the back of the coin. One is a 'tall globe' and one is a 'round globe.' The tall design generally appears on coins dated before 1820 and the round globe appears after that. But, if you can find a tall globe on a coin dated 1821 or 1823, then you have a more valuable piece, as follows:

Mexico 20 Centavos  1943 to 1974

Your coin must be dated 1945, Tolar. The United States of Mexico (Estados Unidos Mexicanos) started issuing coinage in 1905.

Most dates of this coin are worth very little -- less than $1 US in worn condition. The piece shown in the picture has a numismatic grade around Extra Fine (XF) to Almost Uncirculated (AU); it is well preserved. If Tolar's coin is in as good shape as the picture, the $8 figure is a good estimate of catalog value. Here are typical values for these coins:

US Lincoln Cent (Penny)  1909 to Date

Most people think that old fashioned wheat-backed Lincoln cents (pennies) are very valuable. In fact, millions and millions of them were minted and all but a handful carry no significant value. When worn or in average circulated condition, most wheaties are worth a few cents each. Even in fully uncirculated condition, coins dated after 1933 are worth a few US dollars each. For most coins before 1934, here is how the catalog values run:

LINCOLN CENTS DATED BEFORE 1934 (except as noted below):
