Philippines 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 Sentimos  1967 to 1974

In the Philippines, coins issued for circulation and dated from 1967 to 1974 were different from the coins that preceded them -- while previous Philippine coinage had denominations in Spanish with English writing on the reverse (Spain and the U.S. had both minted coins for the region), this new series used Tagalog on the coins instead. Tagalog is a language spoken by many people in the Philippines.

1 = ISANG
5 = LIMANG
10 = SAMPUNG
20 = DALAWAMPUT

Zambia Ngwee Coinage (1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 Ngwee)  1968 to Date

Zambia was called Northern Rhodesia until 1964. In 1968 they moved from British shillings and pence to their own denominations of ngwee and kwacha. This page covers all ngwee coins after 1967.

Requester Big-Mac asked about a 1 ngwee coin. It was issued until 1983 and was made first of bronze and then copper-clad steel. The obverse shows a bust of K.D. Kaunda, who served as Zambia's president from 1964 to 1991. On the reverse of the coin is an aardvark above the denomination. Other denominations use different metals and different patterns. Most patterns feature cool African animals. These are terrific, nice-looking coins for new collectors. And it won't cost much to assemble a nice collection.

Scotland 6 Pence  1677 to 1697

There are several old Scottish coins with thistle and crown. Thistles adorn coins from Scotland even today. We guessed that you have a 6 pence, although pennies and 2 pence also sport a thistle pattern. This page applies only to 6 pence coins like the one in our picture.

Most of these coins have been worn to a frazzle. Here are some typical catalog values, which skyrocket for well-preserved specimens.

worn: $30 US dollars approximate catalog value

Token: India Ram Darbar Temple Ramatanka

We received an inquiry via e-mail about this unusual coin. Shailender sent us the photograph at the left, but no other information except that it is an ancient coin from India.

There is much interest in these coins and we have prepared this page with up-to-date information. This page covers:


Identification - These are not coins used for commerce, but tokens (tankas) related to Hindu temples, i.e., these are 'Temple Tokens,' with various Western spellings such as Ram Tanka, or Ramatanka, or Ram Tonka. They are made for religious pilgrims to carry for good luck, and to catch blessings from the gods. They come with designs of Hindu deities and with various religious ceremonies being carried out in honor of them.

US Lincoln Cent (penny) No Copper Plating  1982 to Date

You know it, Jim. But most people do not know it. Since 1982 our US 'copper' pennies have been minted out of zinc, not copper. Why? Because the value of one copper cent is more than one cent.

Some 1982-dated pennies, and *all* post-1982 pennies are made of zinc with a thin coating of copper added.

Drop a pre-82 cent on a hard surface. You hear a pleasant ping. Drop a post-82 cent on a hard surface. You hear a dull thud. Get the difference?!

Medal: US Famous Americans

Americans lover their celebrities almost as much as their sports figures. You can find modern medals and tokens with a wide variety of US celebrities, many of them with superb artwork and terrific eye appeal. When they are made of silver and are round in shape, coin collectors call them (what else?) silver rounds.

A good web site to see some examples is RiverCityCoins.com.

Token: US Denver Mint Souvenir

Sir or Madam -- You have a modern token or medallion from the Denver Mint. It is worth a few US dollars. From the Coin Doctor we learn:

'The date 1789 is the year of the start of the United States Treasury. The token you have was made to accompany mint sets from the 1980's to 1999. There are two types, one says the Philadelphia Mint and the other says The Denver Mint. The new dollar coins replaced the Treasury tokens in the 2000 mint sets.'
