Germany Bavaria 5 Mark Gold (Mounted in jewelry)  1877 and 1878
Germany Bavaria 5 Mark Gold (Mounted in jewelry) 1877 and 1878

Aaarrrgh! Your Bavaria gold 5 mark is mounted in jewelry? That's too bad. Even the most perfect jewelry mounts that attempt to do no damage to the coin, do damage. Coin collectors will not pay premiums for damaged coins. So, mounted in jewelry, James' coin is worth its weight in gold:

BAVARI 5 MARK (GOLD): 0.0576 troy ounces gold content

At today's gold price of $1290 US dollars per troy ounce, that value is 0.0576 x 1290 = $75. Tomorrow the gold price will be different. Look it up on

The coin in our picture comes from Stacks, Bowers, and Ponterio where it sold in a 2011 auction for $270 US dollars. You can see that collector premium has added substantial value over basic gold value.

worn: $200 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $350
well preserved: $450
fully uncirculated: $700

double the values of the 1877 date

These are catalog values which must be adjusted to obtain actual buy and sell values. Use our Important Terminology page for this purpose. CoinQuest thanks Stacks, Bowers, and Ponterio for use of their coin image.
