Rhodesia 3 Pence  1968
Rhodesia 3 Pence 1968

I like the neat '3 spears' pattern on the reverse side of this coin from Rhodesia. Prior to 1968, lots of coins with the same 3 spears and other British monarchs were produced in what was known as Southern Rhodesia, Zimbabwe today. The earlier coins were made of silver, but this one dated 1968 with Queen Elizabeth is made of copper-nickel.

As a modern coin made of non-precious metal, the value of this coin is very low: less than $1 US dollar in all but fully uncirculated condition. If you have a coin in fully uncirculated, a collector might pay a few dollars for it.
