Great Britain 2 Pounds  1986 to Date

Modern minting technology is really something. It can produce truly beautiful artwork in metal, and sometimes in precious metal.

The UK started minting 2 pound coins in 1986 and have made special versions for collectors in gold and silver. The obverses all have Queen Elizabeth II and the reverses have different patterns. All the coins are worth face value (2 pounds, about $3 US dollar) plus a premium. For gold and silver coins, the premium is equal to the current value of these precious metals. Most circulated coins are worth face value (FV) because they are made of non-precious metal and carry zero premium.

US Trade Dollar Pattern (fake)  1873

Sure enough, Chris, that's a Trade Dollar pattern coin form 1873. If it were genuine, it would be worth a bundle. Bowers and Merina (now Stack's Bowers) had one at auction a few years ago, and it sold for more than $2000 US dollars.

Very likely you have a replica coin like the one in the picture from eBay seller ixwisdom. These are worth a few dollars.

Great Britain Penny and Half Penny  1895 to 1901

Thanks for your thorough description, Caley. Sure enough, we did not have this issue of the British penny in our database. Now it is here.

All the old pennies and half pennies from Great Britain make wonderful collectibles. They come from a time when a penny was *worth* something! But millions and millions were made, so their value today is not that high. Here is a run-down:

HALF PENNY
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

MERCURY DIMES 1916 TO 1931

Token: US Anti-Slavery 'Am I not a Woman and a Sister?'  1838

'Am I not a Woman and a Sister?' appeared on abolitionist tokens that have circulated in America and Great Britain. At the end of 1837 the American Anti-Slavery Society, located at 143 Nassau Street, New York, commissioned the firm of Gibbs Gardner & Co. of Belleville, N.J. to strike these copper tokens. These tokens show significant relations between abolition and the fight for equal rights of women. There were also 'Am I not a Man and a Brother' tokens, but the female version drew much more attention.

Greece 20 Drachmai (Athena)  1973

That is the goddess Athena on the front of this neat coin. She was the Greek virgin goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature. She was the daughter of Zeus; her birth is unique in that she did not have a mother. Instead, she sprang full grown and clad in armour from Zeus' forehead. (Ouch!)

On the back is the mythical Phoenix rising from ashes.

These are modern coins made of copper-nickel. They are worth small amounts:
