India 5 Paise  1957 to 1978
India 5 Paise 1957 to 1978

These are modern coins from India made out of copper-nickel. The Lion Capital of Ashoka, the emblem of India, appears on one side, and the denomination, date, and mint mark appear on the other side. Since they are made of non-precious metal, they do not carry very much value:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $2

If you look closely beneath the date, you will probably see a tiny mint mark. Most coins have mint marks, some do not. There are special date and mint mark combinations that are more valuable than the common coins.

The list below gives catalog value for coins in fully uncirculated condition for the special date and mint mark combinations:

1959 no mint mark: $8 US dollars in fully uncirculated condition
1960 dot inside diamond: $15
1961 dot inside diamond: $15
1962 dot inside diamond: $8
1963 no mint mark: $7
1963 star: $8
1964 star: $15
1965 star: $15
1967 star: $12
1968 no mint mark: $10
1968 star: $3
1969 diamond: $5

Requester description: Square shaped silver coin with three lion on the front. One facing forward, one facing the left, and the other facing the right. India is written on the right side of these lions and other writings are on the left side. They are not in english. On the back there is the number 5 in English and it seems to be some sort of phrase written around the number. At the bottom on of the coin is the year 1965.
