Token: US American Cowboy and Sitting Bull  1879

Well, Kimberly, you have created a little stir. Your token is found at a few places around the Internet, but none of these places have any significant information about it. Even the mighty Token Catalog, with over 420,000 individual listings, does not record this piece. So far, your item is a mystery. Here is more info:

1. From the lettering on the token, it probably does not date all the way back to 1879. Such lettering was used on tokens in the early half of the 1900s, so a more reasonable date would be from that time.

Argentina 10 Centavos  1985 to 1988

This is a modern coin made of brass. All dates are of low value, but a nice-looking specimen like the one in our picture might sell to a collector on eBay for a few US dollars.

Coin: 19664

Italy 100 Lire  1955 to 1989

These coins, minted in stainless steel, not silver as Monique has assumed, generally are worth only a dollar or two US. Some of the earlier dates, before 1962, can bring catalog values of about $100, but only if in fully uncirculated condition. Dates after 1962 are generally not very valuable even in pristine condition.

Use our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means. It is an inflated value.

Dates with high catalog values in fully uncirculated condition are:

Rhodesia (Southern, Zimbabwe) Half Penny and Penny  1934 to 1954

Zimbabwe in Africa was a British colony until recently. It was called 'Southern Rhodesia' until 1965. The British coinage from 1934 to 1954 bears the name of monarchs George VI and Elizabeth I. There are a few dates minted in bronze. Most are minted in copper-nickel. Values are the same regardless of metallic composition.

Collectors like these coins because they come from a place most people have not heard of. Typical catalog values run like this:

Token: US Aladdin's Castle Arcade

Arcades are prevalent today, but they are certainly not new. The computer-generated, full-immersion, nerd's paradises are new, but not arcades in general. And they have used metallic gaming tokens for a long time.

The token in the picture was sent to CoinQuest by Brandon. A member of the World Internet Numismatic Society identified it for us as a token from the now-defunct Aladdin's Castle chain of gaming arcades. If you stop by a gaming blog, you will see that many *older* gamers (25 and older!), remember Aladdin's Castle with great fondness. Apparently Aladdins's Castle has been taken over by Namco, who is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man this year.

Sweden 10, 25, 50 Ore (Gustav VI)  1962 to 1973

That's the monogram of Gustav VI, King of Sweden between 1950 and 1973. These coins are made of copper-nickel and most of them, with few exceptions, are worth very little:

10, 25, AND 50 ORE (MOST DATES)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $2

The exceptions are listed below. The values are for coins in well preserved condition.

Canada 1 Cent Commemorative  1967

Yo, Ape -- Only if your coin is in superb numismatic (coin collector) condition, like the one in our picture, would a collector be willing to pay a premium for it. Maybe $1 or $2 US. Otherwise your coin is worth face value. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

Coin: 2270

Korea (South) 100 Won  1970 to Date

These are neat coins from South Korea made in copper-nickel. In worn and average circulated condition, they are very common and worth essentially face value (a few cents US). As condition improves and dates get older, they start to pick up a little value.

100 WON 1970 TO 1974
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $35
100 won dated 1973 are very common; divide these values by four
