Dominican Republic 100 and 250 Pesos  1979
Dominican Republic 100 and 250 Pesos 1979

The Dominican Republic minted these nice coins to commemorate the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1979.

100 PESOS: 0.3472 troy ounces gold content
250 PESOS: 0.8999 ounces gold

Because these coins were minted for non-circulation, you can usually find them in brilliant uncirculated condition. Their value is equal to their gold content, plus a few dollars to account for collector demand.

For instance, if gold is trading at $1300 US dollars per troy ounce (see web sites such as, multiply by either 0.3472 for 100 pesos or 0.8999 for 250 pesos to get the gold value: 0.3472 x 1300 = $450 US dollars gold value for 100 pesos, 0.8999 x 1300 = $1170 US dollars gold value for 250 pesos.

Once you have the gold value, add about $25 to account for collector demand. If the coin is damaged, say, with a fingerprint, do not add the collector premium.

Coin: 19086 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
