Great Britain Six Pence  1838 to 1887
Great Britain Six Pence 1838 to 1887

Hello Ashley -- Look at the beautiful coin in the picture. It is from eBay seller wybrit and is in fully uncirculated condition with very pleasant gold-green toning. Wybrit has this coin at auction starting at $450 US dollars. That is a lot of money, but it is a lot of coin. It is certified by PCGS, the premier numismatic grading service. Your specimen, with stains and nicks, will be worth substantially less, especially since it is not certified by a numismatic service. The amount less depends on the serverity of the stains and nicks.

Here are some typical values for coins that look like the picture on this page:

SIXPENCE 1838 TO 1880:
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved: $180
fully uncirculated: $450

SIXPENCE 1881 TO 1887:
worn: $12 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $120
fully uncirculated: $250

There are some 'better dates' that command better value than most, and you might have one of those better dates. The better dates are:

1848: $200 average circulated, more in higher grades
1854: $600 average circulated
1862: $300 average circulated
1863: $200 average circulated

CoinQuest thanks wybrit for use of their nice coin photo.
