Syria 25 and 50 Piastres  1929 to 1937
Syria 25 and 50 Piastres 1929 to 1937

These are neat silver coins from Syria. With the US dollar so weak, the price of silver is up. The base value for your coin, even if it is totally worn or damaged, will be the value of the silver content.

25 PIASTRES: 0.11 troy ounces silver
50 PIASTRES: 0.22 troy ounces silver

Get the current value of silver from kitco.com and multiply by 0.11 or 0.22. This will be the base value of your coin. The value cannot be lower.

Here are approximate catalog values for your coin. The values are roughly the same for all dates in the series.

25 PIASTRES:
worn: $4
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $32
fully uncirculated: $100

50 PIASTRES:
worn: $5
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $38
fully uncirculated: $140
