China (Republic) 1 Fen and 5 Fen with Spade  1940
China (Republic) 1 Fen and 5 Fen with Spade 1940

These coins are made of aluminum and circulated during the years of World War II. They are not particularly valuable, with both denominations cataloging roughly as follows:

1 FEN AND 5 FEN
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $8

The coin in our main picture (upper left) is in superb condition, with pleasing light blue toning. This is a $5 coin (retail price) and would probably fetch up to $25 if it were slabbed and graded. Coins in our secondary picture (to the right) are typically what you see, with wear, discoloration, and slight damage. These are $1 coins.
