  1. All the coins in this series catalog for less than $1 US dollar. Completely uncirculated coins, like the coin in the picture, can bring more. A collector might pay $5 to $10 for an uncirculated specimen. Coins dated before 1947 contain 0.091 troy ounces of silver and therefore command a premium over coins after 1946 which are made of copper-nickel.
  2. Called Stella coins after the five-point star depicted on the reverse, $4 U.S. Gold coins are extremely rare (only 460 are in the original mintage) and in high demand as America’s first numismatic work of art. These Stella $4 Gold coins make interesting pieces in any collection with such low original minting numbers.

France Dix (10) Louis d'Or 1640


France (Evreux) Chambre de Commerce 5, 10, and 25 Centimes 1921

Great Britain (Cromwell, Commonwealth) Shilling, 1/2 Crown, and Crown (Fakes are possible) 1658 to 1660


Guatemala 1/2, 1, 2, and 4 Reales 1859 to 1869

Germany Brunswick .. Hannover Thaler 1715 to 1727


US Abraham Lincoln Memoria in Aeterna Sanitary Fair 1865

Israel minted these 10 agorot coins with the date palm between 1960 and 1980. They are made of aluminum bronze (1960 to 1980, see second picture), copper-nickel (1973 to 1979), and pure nickel (1980).
As modern coins made of non-precious metal, they are worth essentially face value unless fully uncirculated. A collector might pay a few US dollars for an uncirculated specimen.
The Standard Catalog of World coins shows a slight increase in collector pricing as the dates get older. For instance, between 1960 and 1964, coins in well preserved condition catalog for about one-half US dollar.
There is a CoinTalk thread about dating Israeli coins at this link (click here).

Oesterreich is Austria and Zita her last empress. The 1000 kronen and 10 groschen look the same, with the Woman of Tyrol on the front and the denomination on the back. These coins command a few US dollars when in good condition. The one in our picture is in nice shape and would probably sell retail for $10 or less.
1000 KRONEN AND 10 GROSCHEN
worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $40
All dates of these coins are equally valuable, the 1928 10 groschen has lower mintage and is worth a little more on average.

Apparently the brutal dictator Adolph Hitler wanted to wait for a 'final victory' before he authorized any official German coinage with his likeness. Fortunately, that day never came. There are no legal tender coins from the German Third Reich (third empire) with Hitler's image, although there were *tons* of medals, medallions, and similar coin-like objects produced. A good example, with history and links, appears on this CoinQuest page.
What you have, John, is a probably a replica of 5 reichsmark (RM) token issued by Germany. The replicas are modern and carry little value. Genuine pieces are more valuable. See below.
According to a CoinQuest reader, this piece is a German token given to Spanish soldiers under the command of General Jose Sanjurjo, also known as El Leon del Rif. Sanjurjo had sought German support prior to the beginning of the Civil War in Spain. The initial plan was to overtake the Spanish government in late 1935 and these coins were to be given to ranking officers at that time.
Further, according to the same reader, a lot of these pieces came out of excavations from Spanish Civil War battlefields, especially old neighborhoods in Madrid that were being renovated after being demolished during the Civil War.
As to value, the replica pieces sell today on eBay for $5 to $10 US dollars, depending on condition. A dealer would probably pay $2 or so for a nice-looking replica. But genuine pieces are certainly worth more. The problem is to discern real from fake. The side-by-side comparison below shows a marked difference in quality of strike and overall appearance between two examples of this interesting piece. Presumably the image on the left is genuine and on the right replica. Note the strong detail in the genuine piece that is not reproduced in the replica. (Precise weights of both pieces would settle the real/fake argument, but I do not have that data at this time.)


Genuine pieces are worth much more than replicas. I do not have good estimates of value, as none of my reference sources include this piece. My guess is that genuine, undamaged 1935 5 RM would catalog for several hundred US dollars.
Netherlands West Friesland Duit and Stuiver Coinage 1701 to 1794

That's the coat of arms of West Friesland in the Netherlands - a shield with two facing lions walking left - and the words WEST FRI SIA (or similar) get that point across. These were minted in copper duits and silver stuiver and 2 stuivers denominations, with 8 duits in 1 stuiver. Paul's coin is a 2 stuivers, with 2 S on the shield side, as shown in our secondary photo.
West Friesland is also known as North Holland. It is located (no surprise!) west of Friesland (see map).
The listings below give approximate catalog values for these coins with any special dates called out separately. Most coins carry low value unless they are in top-notch condition. The coins in our pictures are in average circulated condition with good eye appeal. The copper duit in our main picture comes from the collection of Arminius on the WorldofCoins.eu web site, one of our favorite forums on the Internet. The participant there are excellent numismatists (coin collectors), and CoinQuest thanks Arminius for use of his coin photo. It's a nice one!
DUIT (copper, ~22 mm diameter)
worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $80
duits with inscription WEST FRISIA but with the coat of arms of Frieland, are worth more, cataloging over $100 in average circulated condition (the lions in Friesland's coat of arms look straight ahead; they look to their left in West Friesland's coat of arms, as shown in our pictures)
duits dated 1741 are rare, cataloging over $100 in average circulated condition
STUIVER (silver, ~15 mm diameter)
worn: $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $40
well preserved: $100
STUIVER (gold, ~15 mm diameter)

average circulated: $12
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $50
2 stuivers dated before 1715 are somewhat rare; double these values
These are catalog values and must be adjusted to get actual buy and sell values. See our Important Terminology page.

Old coins and their value with pictures

You are correct, John. Free spin casino no deposit bonus 2019. It's from Sicily. Actually Ferdinando was king of Naples and Sicily between 1759 and 1805. Their monetary system was somewhat complicated, with 6 cavalli in 1 tornese, 240 tornese in 1 Piastra, and several sub-denominations as well. There are 12 cavalli in 1 grano, your coin.
For most dates, worn coins are worth very little. Here are some typical catalog values:
ONE (VN) GRANO 1788 TO 1793:
worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $16
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $400
But dates after 1793 start to pick up respectable values:
ONE (VN) GRANO 1797 TO 1800:
worn: $12 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $300
well preserved: $1000
fully uncirculated: $3000
coins dated 1797 are worth a little less than these figures
coins dated 1800 are worth a little more than these figures
Be sure to check the Important Terminology page for proper interpretation of the catalog values on this page.
