US Missing Clad Layer (Minting error)  1965 to Date

Nowadays not many people remember when silver coins actually circulated in America. Up to 1964, our silver coins ~ dimes, quarters, half dollars ~ were made of actual silver. A full 90 percent of each coin was pure silver. The remaining 10 percent was copper. Then, in 1964, the Federal Government decided, with the rest of the world (pretty much), to do away with precious metal in coins and strike them out of cheap alloys. Coins minted from 1965 until now have zero silver content. Dimes, quarters, and half dollars are made of copper with a thin clad layer of nickel.

Germany 1, 2, 5, and 10 Reichspfennig  1936 to 1940

Hello, Jeff --

Most of Hitler's Third Reich coins with a swastika carry some, but not much, numismatic value. The 1936A coin in our picture is from Munzenversand Udo Helmig and is in good shape numismatically (that is, from a coin collector's point of view). Helmig's selling price of 120 Euros shows how a rare date and a great condition can pay off in coin value. If you had a coin like this to sell, a dealer would likely pay about one-half the retail price.

Morocco 1/2 and 1 Dirham (AH1299 to AH1314)  1881 to 1897

These silver coins come from the Moroccan Kingdom of Moulay al-Hasan I with dates AH1299 to AH1314. AH dates are Islamic Hijri dates which use a calendar based on when Mohammed lived, about 600 AD on the Gregorian calendar. The AH1299 to AH1314 dates correspond to 1881AD to 1897AD. The AH dates appear in Arabic numerals on the front of the coin.

Coins in excellent shape, like the half dirham in our primary picture, command decent collector value. Our secondary picture shows the reverse of a one dirham coin.

Cuba 'ABC' Peso  1934 to 1939

This is an interesting coin. Made of 90% silver, it weighs 26.73 grams, 0.773 troy ounces actual silver weight, and has a diameter of 38mm. The obverse shows the Cuban national arms inside a wreath and the reverse shows a laureate bust along with the date.

This coin is often referred to as the 'ABC' peso, which sounds pleasant enough - but the reasons for this name involve a turbulent part of Cuban history. The ABC was a revolutionary (and sometimes violent) underground group that existed in Cuba in the 1930s, and their name relates to the different cells within the organization: A, B, and C.
