South Africa 5 Shillings  1960
South Africa 5 Shillings 1960

Neat coin! These commemorative 5 shillings were minted in honor of the 50th anniversary of the South African Union. Some have the letters HM below the building, but the HM does not affect value.

This coin is worth at least its weight in silver. There are 0.455 troy ounce of silver in one coin, so multiply the current price of silver (available at kitco) by 0.455. As of this moment, each coin is worth just under $8 US dollars in silver. This is the Base Value (BV).

worn: (BV) + $0 US dollars
average circulated: (BV) + $5
well preserved: (BV) + $8
fully uncirculated: (BV) + $12

Coins struck in 'proof' versions are still inside the original plastic packaging from the official mint. Such coins have never been touched by a human hand and are liked by some collectors. Their current catalog value is $28.

Coin: 13242 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
