Israel 500 Pruta  1949
Israel 500 Pruta 1949

This is a big, bold, silver coin issued by modern Israel. It contains 0.402 troy ounces of silver, so the first step in computing value is to find the Base Value (BV), or value due to silver content alone.

To compute BV, multiply the current value of silver by 0.402. According to, today's silver value is $19.50 US dollars per troy ounce. Tomorrow it will be different, so be sure to look it up. BV is 0.402 x 19.50 = $7.80.

For coins that are in extra-nice condition, collectors will pay a premium over BV, like this:

worn: BV
average circulated: BV
well preserved: BV + $8
fully uncirculated: BV + $40 catalog value
