Japan 5 Sem  1938 to 1940

The design of this coin appeals to my engineer-style brain. Simple and symmetric. Nice!

Japan minted these 5 sen coins in aluminum-bronze between 1938 and 1940. Values, for all dates, run like this:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $7
Be sure to check our Important Terminology page for information about converting these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Coin: 21284

US Lincoln Cent (Penny)  1909 to Date

Most people think that old fashioned wheat-backed Lincoln cents (pennies) are very valuable. In fact, millions and millions of them were minted and all but a handful carry no significant value. When worn or in average circulated condition, most wheaties are worth a few cents each. Even in fully uncirculated condition, coins dated after 1933 are worth a few US dollars each. For most coins before 1934, here is how the catalog values run:

Medal: China United Maxxico 8 Reales  1884

What a great coin. Shrouded in dusty darkness, the Maxxico Revolution is said to have taken place around 1884, the very date of the coin. Unfortunately, Maxxico itself disappeared suddenly and completely at the precise instant the coin was issued. Too bad. I like the coin's design: very spiffy. An authoritative look at United Maxxico appears on this page of Chiefa Coins (click here).

China (Guangdong) Five Goats (Fakes are possible)  1936

The 'five goat coin' from Guangdong province is somewhat a mystery. The only reference we can find is at the comprehensive PrimalTrek web site [PRESS HERE]. Presumably, the coin is rare, and there are fakes readily available, as shown in our secondary picture (lower right).

The PrimalTrek site says that genuine coins sell for $20000 US dollars. This may be true, but we have not been able to verify this amount.

Tibet Sho  1918 to 1928

If you have a coin from Tibet, I'd hold on to it. Tibetan numismatics (study of coins) is in its infancy. I do not know of a definitive online reference. The Standard Catalog of World Coins has a good section on these coins. There are many variations and they are difficult to describe. As time goes on a more study is applied to these coins, their values will go up.

The coin in our picture, which corresponds to the one sent to us by requester Al, is a common 1 sho coin in copper. There are many varieties of this coin, and there are many Tibetan coins which look similar.

Token: India Religious Madinah Sharif with Kalimah

Hello Talat -- Thanks for your inquiry. We are Westerners at CoinQuest and have almost no knowledge of coins like yours. However, we have some expert friends who are able to help and they tell me this is a religious Temple Token (tanka) from Islamic India (see Zeno.ru). The mosque on the front side is Madinah Sharif (noble city), probably the Prophet's Mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia. On the reverse side is the Muslim statement of faith, the Kalimah.
