South Africa Silver 2 Rand (Union Building)  2013

You know, GT, here at CoinQuest we are basically collectors at heart. This is why it irks me when governments issue coins and then purposefully limit production to drive prices up. That's what South Africa did with this nice-looking 2013 2 rand coin. Unfortunately, it happens all the time -- all countries do it. Yecch.

And in the advertisements for this coin, they even try to capitalize on Nelson Mandela's death by saying he lay in state inside the Union Building. Double yecch.

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:

Great Britain 2 Pounds  1986 to Date

Modern minting technology is really something. It can produce truly beautiful artwork in metal, and sometimes in precious metal.

The UK started minting 2 pound coins in 1986 and have made special versions for collectors in gold and silver. The obverses all have Queen Elizabeth II and the reverses have different patterns. All the coins are worth face value (2 pounds, about $3 US dollar) plus a premium. For gold and silver coins, the premium is equal to the current value of these precious metals. Most circulated coins are worth face value (FV) because they are made of non-precious metal and carry zero premium.

New Zealand 20 Cents (Kiwi Bird)  1967 to 1985

Most coins from New Zealand have really neat patterns, and this one is no exception. Why not try to assemble a collection of New Zealand coins? It would be plenty of fun and cost very little.

The 20 cents is made of copper nickel and is dirt cheap:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $4
These values apply to all dates.

Coin: 18427

US Trade Dollar Pattern (fake)  1873

Sure enough, Chris, that's a Trade Dollar pattern coin form 1873. If it were genuine, it would be worth a bundle. Bowers and Merina (now Stack's Bowers) had one at auction a few years ago, and it sold for more than $2000 US dollars.

Very likely you have a replica coin like the one in the picture from eBay seller ixwisdom. These are worth a few dollars.

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1895 to 1901

Thanks for your thorough description, Caley. Sure enough, we did not have this issue of the British penny in our database. Now it is here.

All the old pennies and half pennies from Great Britain make wonderful collectibles. They come from a time when a penny was *worth* something! But millions and millions were made, so their value today is not that high. Here is a run-down:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

US Liberty Head or Mercury Dime  1916 to 1945

The name of your coin is 'Winged Liberty Dime,' but most people think Miss Liberty is really the Roman god Mercury, associated with the fleet-footed Greek messenger, Hermes, so they call these coins Mercury Dimes. Your 1936 example catalogs for $1.50 in worn condition. Here is how catalog values of these coins run:

MERCURY DIMES 1916 TO 1931
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $7
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $100
