Austria Ducat  1867 to 1915

Gorgeous coins, these old Austrian gold ducats. Your 1915 example is one from a long line starting in 1852. They all contain 0.1106 troy ounces of gold.

On this page we address Austrian 1 ducat coins from 1867 to 1915. These 1 ducat coins measure about 20 mm in diameter; 4 ducat coins measure about 40 mm in diameter. Our page for Austrian 4 ducats appears at this link [Press Here]. Austrian 1 and 4 ducat gold coins are complicated subjects, as there are many subtle variations. Do not invest large sums in them unless you are sure you know what you are doing.

US Confederate Half Dollar (Fakes are possible)  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.

Russia 5, 10, and 25 Roubles (Fakes are possible)  1895 to 1897

5 ROUBLES: 1895 and 1896
10 ROUBLES: 1895 thru 1897
25 ROUBLES: 1896 only

These coins are worth tens of thousands of US dollars, or hundreds of thousands of US dollars. To qualify for these prices, coins must be dated as shown above and look like our picture, with Nicholas II on the front and an encircled imperial eagle on the back.

Hungary Ducat (Fakes are possible)  1731 to 1740

These gold ducats from Hungary are beautiful coins. The coins in this series, 1731 to 1740, contain 0.111 troy ounces of gold, giving them a base value (BV) of $128 US dollars at today's gold market.

Figure the current BV by multiplying the current gold 'spot' value by 0.111. For instance, if gold were at $1300 US dollars per troy ounce, the BV of this ducat would be 0.111 x 1300 = $144.

Collectors will pay more than BV when a ducat is in good numismatic (coin collector) condition. Here are rough values:
