Sardinia 100 lire coins are worth 0.933 troy ounces of gold in any condition. If they are well preserved, a collector premium is added to the basic gold value. Here are some typical collector premiums:

heavily worn or damaged: add $0
average circulated: add $100
well preserved: add $300
fully uncirculated: add $1500

If you have a coin that is truly uncirculated, or nearly so, take it to a coin dealer or knowledgeable collector. As him or her to determine the mint mark, which is an anchor or eagle's head. Generally, the anchor carries slightly better collector premiums.
