Czechoslovakia 1 Koruna  1922 to 1953
Czechoslovakia 1 Koruna 1922 to 1953

Your coin sounds like a 1 koruna piece from Czechoslovakia. There were minted in copper-nickel and aluminum at various times from 1922 to 1953. They are generally not very valuable.

Coins dated 1922 to 1938:
worn: less than $1 approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $2
for fully uncirculated coins dated 1925, 1929 or 1930, the catalogs quote a value of $4.

Coins dated 1946 to 1953:
worn: less than $1
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $1
coins dated 1953 catalog at $2 when well preserved and $5 when fully uncirculated.

There's something special about the 1947 issue. Two different coins were made this year: one in copper-nickel, and one in aluminum. The copper-nickel issue is slightly scarce, and catalogs at $3 when circulated, $6 when uncirculated.

However, the coin minted in aluminum is very scarce because only a few were minted. This sends the coin collector value through the roof.

A 1947 1 koruna in aluminum catalogs for $450 in average circulated condition, and $2000 when fully uncirculated! Hope you have one of those, too!

It is important to note that counterfeits of the super scarce 1947 koruna are so common that even the catalogs display a warning about them. These counterfeits are often encountered as proof-like specimens, which means that there will be a deep contrast between the fields, or backgrounds of the coin, and the devices, or foreground of the coin. The fields will be almost mirror-like, and the devices will have a frosted look. Be wary of these or other counterfeits!

The values above are catalog values. Use our Important Terminology link to understand what this means.
