Mexico Un Peso  1918 to 1945

Hello, Liz,

Your Mexican peso is made of 0.720 fine silver, with a total 0.3856 troy ounces of silver net. Use a web site such as kitco.com to find the current price of silver, then multiply that number by 0.3856 to find the base value of your coin. If silver were $17.50 US dollars per ounce, for instance, the base value would be 0.3856 x 17.50 = $6.75. Be sure to look up the price of silver, as it changes every day.

Belgium 5 Francs  1941 to 1947

Belgium has a proud history of nice-looking coins. When the Germans took over during World War II, trashy zinc coins replaced some of the nice ones. These 5 franc coins today look even worse than they did back then. It is almost impossible to find nice-looking examples.

The un-appeal of these coins keep collector values low. Only a few end-of-the-war dates carry decent value. All other dates run roughly like this:

East Africa 1/2, 1, 5, and 10 Cents  1907 to 1964

It is hard to miss coins with holes at the center. This series of cents has got 'em!

Great Britain issued coinage for part of its empire in the eastern part of Africa from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. Coins marked East Africa circulated in areas where Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Somalia are today. The coins were minted in various metals, including copper-nickel, bronze (shown), and aluminum.

While a few *key dates* are present, most of the coins, including 1 cent, 5 cents, and 10 cents, are not worth very much unless they are in fully uncirculated condition. Taking them as a whole, the approximate catalog values for the *common date* coins are:

Germany 10 Mark (Munich Olympics)  1972

The Summer Olympics were held in Munich, Germany in 1972. The games were overshadowed by the Munich massacre in which eleven Israeli athletes and coaches, and a German police officer, were killed by rebels.

Before the massacre and in commemoration of the games, Germany issued many different 10 mark silver coins with different patterns, legends, mint marks, and edge lettering. Most of these coins are unremarkable, and are worth only their silver value of 0.311 troy ounces. At $30 US dollars per troy ounce, that's about 0.311 x 30 = $9 US dollars. Proof versions were issued for collectors, and these usually command a little more than silver value. Be sure to look up the current value of silver (click to kitco.com) because it changes every day.

Hong Kong 1, 2, and 5 Dollars  1960 to 1992

These 1, 2, and 5 dollar coins from Hong Kong are all too modern to carry significant collector value. They are worth face value. A collector would spend a few US dollars to add uncirculated specimens to his or her collection.
These three coins all have Queen Elizabeth on the front and a crowned lion design on the back. The 2 and 5 dollar coins are not round, but have wavy and 10-sided shapes, respectively.

Coin: 1938

Token: US Pirate Toy Coin  1721

Andrew this coin has essentially no value, it is a toy. You can find this coin in a pirate's treasure box at Barnes & Noble. Like true treasure, they keep getting found and people wonder what they are. The low quality of manufacture, even for 1721, gives them away as toys, not actual coins.
If you had one in almost perfect condition, I'd bet an interested eBayer would pay up to $1 US dollar for it.

Coin: 17991

France 5 Francs  1933 to 1952

I like French coins. The designs are always interesting, artistic, and well done. This design is no exception.

This is a complicated series of coins. It runs from 1933 to 1952 with the same patterns on front and back, but several variations apply. Some coins are made out of nickel, others aluminum, and still others aluminum-bronze. Also, some coins have mint marks and others do not.

In general, for most coins except those noted below, here are approximate catalog values:

Mexico 8 Reales  1824 to 1897

Hi Deb -- You probably have a well-worn 8 reales coin from the old Republic of Mexico.

These coins contain 0.786 troy ounces of silver. So that sets the minimum value they can attain. For instance, if silver is selling at $12 per troy ounce (look it up for today's price at kitco.com), the minimum price is 0.786 x 12 = $9.40.

Coins with the liberty cap and starburst pattern were minted in smaller denominations than 8 reales. In fact, denominations of 1/2, 1, 2, and 4 reales look the same, only smaller. The denomination appears explicitly on the coin in the place where '8R' appears on the 8 reales. Look for '1/2R', '1R', '2R', or '4R' on your coin and, if you have one, click to this appraisal page.
