Sweden 10, 25, 50 Ore 1942 to 1950
Swedish 10, 25, and 50 ore coins were minted in 40% silver from 1942 to 1950. 100 ore was equal to one krona (krona is the Swedish unit of currency), so a 50 ore coin would've been worth half of one krona. Of course, because these coins were minted with silver content, they will always be worth at least the silver melt value, also called Base Value or BV.
Be careful, however. There are coins in the 1942 to 1950 date range that do not look like the coin in our picture. These coins are made of nickel-bronze and contain no silver. This page applies only to coins that look like our photo.
A 50 ore coin from 1943 to 1950 is 22mm in diameter and weighs 4.8 grams. These coins contain .0617 of an ounce in ASW (actual silver weight), which today is equal to $1 in U.S. dollars. Because the silver market is constantly fluctuating, you may want to check kitco.com for the current spot price of silver. If you multiply the current spot price by .0617, you'll have the silver value for this coin. Here are the BVs for the three denominations:
10 ORE 1942 to 1950, 0.0185 troy ounces ASW, BV today $0.30
25 ORE 1943 to 1950, 0.0298 troy ounces ASW, BV today $0.48
50 ORE 1943 to 1950, 0.0617 troy ounces ASW, BV today $0.99
The silver content is going to determine the overall value of these coins, unless you have a better date or one in exceptional condition. For approximate catalog values (in U.S. dollars), please see below.
