Hong Kong 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 Cents  1863 to 1992

Exotic Hong Kong, now part of China, was under British authority starting in the mid 1800s all the way to 1997. As such, coins from British Hong Kong carry the reigning monarch's portait on one side.

The 1, 5, 10, 20 and some of the 50 cent denominations have the same pattern on the back of the coin. The words HONG-KONG and the denomination encircle four Chinese characters. Some 50 cent coins have four Chinese characters, but they are not at the center. Recent issues sometimes sport wavy edges. Different metals are used, including copper, 80% silver, brass, and nickel.

US Hawaii (King Kalakaua) 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Dollar  1883

US influence in Hawaii did not start until 1900, with admission into the Union in 1959. Before then the Polynesian culture of Hawaii was ruled by a succession of kings and queens starting with Kamehameha I in 1795. British influence began in 1778 with the discovery of the islands by James Cook.

King Kalakaua (1874 to 1891) issued a series of coins including 5 cents, 10 cents, 1/8 dollar, 1/4 dollar, 1/2 dollar, and dollar in 1883. This page does not apply to the 5 and 10 cent coins. You can find the denomination of the dollars on the reverse side (the side with the shield) using 1/8 D, 1/4 D, 1/2 D, and 1 D annotations. Some of these coins were issued in silver, others were issued in copper. All genuine coins are valuable.

France 5, 10, 20, and 25 Centimes  1914 to 1945

Interesting coin, Blah. The hole adds character (sort of). The big RF stands for 'Republic Francaise' the French Republic, and 'Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite' means Liberty, Equality, and Brotherhood.

These coins come in four denominations, 5, 10, 20, and 25 centimes. Most of them you see are in poor condition and carry low value. As always, coins in fully uncirculated condition are worth much more than circulated coins. There are a few *good dates* listed below.

Token: US James K Polk  1845 to 1849

Even though the dates say 1845 and 1849, this brass token was made in modern times and is worth a few US dollars at most.

Italy Sardinia 1, 2, and 5 Lire  1821 to 1849

If you look closely, timfuest, just to the right of the L5 (5 lire), you may see a small anchor mint mark. There should also be an L or a P just to the left of the L5.

For your coin dated 1826, the mint marks do not matter as both carry catalog values that are equal, but sometimes mint marks matter. Here are typical catalog values for all dates and all mint marks of the 1, 2, and 5 Lire coins from the old Italian State of Sardinia, except as noted:

1 LIRE (22 mm diameter)

South Africa 1/2, 1, 2 1/2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 Cents (Van Riebeeck)  1961 to 1964

Afrikaners (including the Boer subgroup) are a Germanic ethnic group in Southern Africa. They consider Jan Van Riebeeck their founding father. His likeness appears on many South African coins.

Sorry, Danielle. Although your coin appears to be gold, and although there is a South African gold coin with Van Riebeeck's likeness, your coin with the ox cart is made of brass. It is a one cent piece.

Here is some data on this series of coins. The data applies to all dates. All have Van Riebeeck's portrait on the front and the inscription UNITY IS STRENGTH, but they have different designs on the back. In the listings below, BV means 'base value.' It is the value of the silver in the coin. Look up the current value of silver on web sites such as kitco.com, then multiply it by the troy ounces of silver in the coin to obtain BV.

India (East Company) Spiritual Tokens  1616 to 1839

When you find a copper coin with the inscription EAST INDIA COMPANY dated before 1839, usually with early dates such as 1616, 1717, 1818, and denominations ANNA, HALF ANNA, or RUPEE, the coin is not issued by the East India Company, but a modern spiritually oriented token recently manufactured and sold to tourists. These tokens generally include the likeness of different Hindu gods, as well as related spiritual symbols and caricatures.

These pieces are not coins per se, even though they contain valid denominations (anna, rupee, etc.) and a valid issuing agency (East India Company). They are instead Temple Tokens, Lebbo coins, or similar non-legal tender with religious or magical implications. They are readily collectible, and assembling a comprehensive set of these items would be a collecting challenge, but they do not carry very much value.
