Ireland 1 Penny 1928 to 1968

If you have a nice-looking coin like the one in our picture, and if it has little wear, no cleanings, pleasing color, and good eye appeal, a collector would be happy to add it to his or her collection for a few US dollars. Worn, dark coins are worth essentially zero.

Here is how approximate catalog values run for this hen and chicks design. All coins, except 1940, carry very low value when in worn or average circulated condition. Well preserved coins, and coins that are fully uncirculated, are worth decent amounts, as shown in the detailed listings below. Use our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual values.
