Neat coin, Simmibaba. These 2 piastres coins from Egypt contain 0.045 troy ounces of silver, which gives them a small basic value due to silver content alone.
Collectors who want to add one of these to their collections will pay roughly in accordance with these catalog values:
worn: $2 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $20
CoinQuest reader Jeronimo points out that this may be a 'sleeper' coin, i.e., one that is currently undervalued and will probably rise in value faster than other coins. If you look in popular coin catalogs, you will see values far lower than our values above. Our values are based on Jeronimo's evaluation and on current auction prices seen on eBay.
Refer to our Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
