South Africa 2 1/2 and 5 Shillings  1892 to 1897
South Africa 2 1/2 and 5 Shillings 1892 to 1897

Wow, Bob. It sounds like you have a real winner in your South African 2 1/2 shillings. These are neat, big, and artistic coins minted in silver between 1892 and 1897. The 5 shillings were minted with the same design (and bigger, of course) only in 1892. The 2 1/2 shillings contain 0.42 troy ounces of silver, and the 5 shillings contain twice that amount.

Since his coin is in superb condition, Bob will be looking toward the 'fully uncirculated' end of our listing below of catalog values. But remember, Bob, these are catalog values and are therefore inflated values. Use our Terminology page to convert these values to actual buy and sell values.
