Sweden 2 Ore  1661 to 1665
Sweden 2 Ore 1661 to 1665

You must have an old 2 ore coin from King Carl XI of Sweden, who ruled from 1660 to 1697. It is difficult to find these coins in good condition. If yours has likeable eye appeal, Frank, even though it is worn, you are doing well.

The coin in our picture comes from Coin House SESAM Basel in Riehen, Switzerland, where it is on sale for 100 euros, about $130 US dollars. This gives you a good idea of retail price.

The catalogs report these values:

worn: $60 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $225
well preserved: $400

These values apply to most dates. One dates, specifically 1662, catalogs at about twice these values.

If you would like to send us a picture of your coin, Frank, we can probably give you a decent estimate of value. Use the Contact Us link to start an e-mail exchange with CoinQuest.
