Ireland 10 Shilling (Easter Rising) 1966

Ireland's Easter Rising, also known as the Easter Rebellion, was an armed insurrection during Easter Week, April 1916. The Rising was launched to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic. At the time, the United Kingdom was heavily engaged in World War I. This coin was issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising.

The coin contains 0.486 troy ounces of silver, so it can never be worth less than its base value, or BV. To compute BV, multiply the current price of silver by 0.486. For instance, at the time of this writing, silver is trading at $19.30 US dollars per troy ounce. (The price of silver changes continually. Look it up at Then BV = 0.486 x 19.30 = $9.40.

Once you know BV, the price of these coins runs like this:

worn: BV + $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: BV + $5
well preserved: BV + $10
fully uncirculated: BV + $20
