Iceland 1 Eyrir, and 5, 10, 25, and 50 Aurar  1946 to 1974
Iceland 1 Eyrir, and 5, 10, 25, and 50 Aurar 1946 to 1974

These coins from the Republic of Iceland come in several denominations and compositions:

1 EYRIR: bronze
5 AURAR: bronze
10 AURAR: copper-nickel
25 AURAR: copper-nickel
50 AURAR: nickel-brass

These are all modern coins made of non-precious metal and, as such, they are worth very little. Almost all dates and denominations are worth less than $1 US dollar, even in fully uncirculated condition.

The catalogs show a handful of dates that rise up to $5 when fully uncirculated, as follows:

1 EYRIR 1946: $2 fully uncirculated
5 AURAR 1958: $5 fully uncirculated
5 AURAR 1959: $4 fully unc
5 AURAR 1966: $2
10 AURAR 1957: $5
10 AURAR 1958: $2
10 AURAR 1959: $2
25 AURAR 1957: $2
25 AURAR 1959: $2

Coin: 16265 , Genre: Central Europe North South

itīs outdated currensy that you dont see any more, you need 100 aurar for 1 kr and you need around 2-3 kr for 1 gummy bear - Icelander
That's a great analysis, Icelander. Even though outdated, coin collectors will still pay up-to-date money for aurar coins to add to their collections. It is demand from coin collectors that make old coins valuable. - CoinQuest (Paul)
