Peru 1/2 and 1 Sol  1935 to 1965
Peru 1/2 and 1 Sol 1935 to 1965

Peru makes awfully pretty coins, don't you think? Even though ORO means GOLD, these coins are made of brass. Shucks!

Values for the 1/2 sol and 1 (un) sol denominations run essentially like this:

worn: less than $1 US dollar
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $5

There are a few *better dates* in the series which fetch a little more than the low values above. Here is a list of approximate catalog values for better date coins in well preserved condition. Coins with more wear will be worth much less.

1/2 SOL
1942: $5
1949: $5
1954: $3

1943: $3
1949: $12
1950: $15
1953: $10

Coin: 15285 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
