India (British) 1/12, Quarter, and Half Anna and Half Pice  1833 to 1858

These are old, cool coins, dj. Since you indicate your specimen as heavily worn, you cannot expect to sell it for more than $1 or $2 US dollars.

However, in tip-top shape, you can expect a few 10s of dollars for these pieces from British East India. The coin in our picture has little wear, but the stain on the bottom detracts from appearance and therefore value. This coin might sell retail for $5. It is just not a nice-looking coins. A dealer buying it would probably pay $2 or so, hoping to make a typical 100 percent profit for handling the coin.

Token: US Altered States of America Statehood Parody Quarter  1999 to Date

Daniel Carr is an exceptionally talented contemporary artist who produces all sorts of neat collectible coins, tokens, and medals. Taking a lead from the US Mint's Statehood Quarter Dollar program, Daniel created (and is creating) parodies of the official quarters, but with generally cynical themes and a sunglassed dude replacing George Washington.

These pieces are available in copper-nickel and yellow brass metals. They are, of course, not legal tender and are meant solely as collectible items.

US 50 Dollars (Octagon and Round) (Counterfeit)  1915

These are some great-looking coins. Along with the 1915 S half dollar (click here to see it), four gold coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint to commemorate the Panama-Pacific International Exposition held in San Francisco in 1915.

These coins all have a base value relative to their gold content. The current base value can be determined by multiplying the AGW (actual gold weight, posted below for each coin) by the current spot price of gold. Current prices can be found on On top of the base value, each coin carries a premium both for their historical nature as well as their appeal to collectors.
