Czechoslovakia 2, 5 and 10 Haleru 1922 to 1938
I always enjoy nice coin designs, and this one is pretty spiffy if you ask me! Czechoslovakia was part of the old pre-WWI Austrian-Hungarian Empire and has since been re-organized as two separate republics: the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The coins in this series, displaying the Charles Bridge in Praha (Prague) come from a time when the two republics were merged as one Czechoslovakia.
Values of these coins are quite low although a few dates rise to decent levels for coins in excellent condition. Both the 5 and 10 haleru denominations are worth about the same, as follows:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $6
while the 2 haleru denomination is more rare and worth about three times these values.
The better dates are shown below, with values corresponding to well preserved condition.
All the values above are catalog values which must be adjusted to obtain actual buy and sell values. Use our Terminology page to estimate the adjustments.

Requester description: 1931 The surface of the coin has weathered to a dark brown color with some lightly tarnished areas in the fields. Obverse: Arched bridge (looks like Charles Bridge in Prague) with three piers over a stylized water, 2/3 way towards top of coin, full width from rim to rim. Below bridge, centered along medial axis is a circle with the number 10 inside. Reverse: Centered lion rampant with shield. Legend of 'REPUBLIKA CESKOSLOVENSKA' arched from 7 o'clock position to 5 o'clock position inside rim. Date '1931' marked at 6 o'clock, separated from legend by a square point on either side.
