Medal: Great Britain Sir T S Raffles Founder of Singapore  1819
Medal: Great Britain Sir T S Raffles Founder of Singapore 1819

Singapore was founded in 1819, and Sir T S Raffles looks mighty proud of his work. But this pewter medal is of modern origins (probably around 1980) and, as such, does not carry very much value.

(I've heard of a silver version of this medal. Since it is so large, it contains a lot of silver and that makes it valuable. Just about all of them, or perhaps all of them, are made of pewter.)

Typical catalog values:

worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $5
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $40

Coin: 14933 , Genre: Medals

thanks for ur infos, I have a silver coin exactly like this but it's damaged. I wanted to know if u can help me if it worths? I've searched about other versions of this coin but they were pewter and bigger than mine. mine is 38mm diameter I think - mehregan
If the damage is substantial, your medal is worth its weight in silver. Damage removes all collector value, leaving only precious metal value. I have not been able to find out the weight of a silver medal. Take your piece to a jeweler who can weigh it and give you a quote on value. - CoinQuest (Paul)
