Norway Specie Daler, 1/2 Specie Daler, and 24 Skillings 1819 to 1844
Yo, BC ...
Look at the *gorgeous* coin in our picture. It comes from Goldberg Auctioneers and sold for a whopping $1700 US dollars in the auction at this link. CoinQuest thanks Goldberg Auctions for use of their coin photo. It's a beauty. If your coin looks like the Goldberg's, the $1700 figure applies directly.
Norway issued three different denominations all with roughly the same design during this period:
24 Skilling: 22 mm diameter, $150 catalog value for average circulated condition
1/2 Specie Daler: 30 mm diameter, $150 catalog value average circulated
1 Specie Daler: 39 mm, $200 catalog value average circulated
To properly interpret catalog value, see our Important Terminology page.
Condition plays an important role in the value of coins like yours. The coin in the picture is in much better condition than an average circulated coin, and this, coupled with the fact that there are no stains, darkenings, or cleanings, make it worth much more than the average circulated price quoted above.
NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.
You claim your coin is in excellent condition, and that is good. However, it also raises a flag that your coin may be a counterfeit. There are plenty of fake rare coins out there today. If you would like to send us a picture of your coin, we may be able to tell if it is genuine or not. Click to our fake's page for a look at counterfeit examples.
Finally, you should be aware that there are some *special date* coins in these series that are worth substantially more than the *common date* coins quoted above, even in worn condition, as follows:
1829 and 1833 1/2 specie daler: $1000 average circulated
1819 and 1823 specie daler: $1000 average circulated
1833 specie daler: $2000 average circulated
