    I'm considering selling some coins from my collection. I'm new to this and I'd appreciate your opinion on the worth of this coin. 20190707_033811.jpg 20190707_033831.jpg

    Hello Alicia.. Most older world coins are demonetized. As I stated on your other thread you can get them 4 or 5 for $1.00. Yours do not have much value.

    Peace :angelic:

    The 1P, 2P, 5P and 50P are spending money / pocket change so face value.

    The Two Shillings and larger 10P can be exchanged for face value in the UK

    The pre decimal Pennies I would regard as scrap copper.

    Alicia728. I could be wrong, but I think all of them are fairly everyday. And I live in England. Britannia, seated figure on reverse, 1900 - 1967. I see the 1915 Wheat Penny averages at $3.50, but in certified mint state (MS+) could be worth $300. A rare 1933 penny, according to BBC News, was sold for £72.000. There were only 4 in existence. You could be lucky, but don't set your hopes too high ! :greedy: :jawdrop:

    Good question. The Wheat Penny is American, and not part of the equation. My mistake.

    People do collect those.
    If you check on Ebay you can get an idea of the value of yours.
    Yours do look to be in great condition. That always adds value.
    But, as another lister said, these are often sold in bulk.
    My dad carried one of these with his birth year on it as a pocket piece. To the point it wore down to a smooth planchet. I replaced it for him.
    People like pocket pieces, and large coins. Perhaps you could make some cash by selling them to folks as a pocket piece with their birth year on it? Of course, if they are all dated in the 1800's there wont be many buyers!
    I always liked them, as I like big copper. And they were available cheaply. I could have bought complete sets at one time.
    Now? Their value lies in their metal content.
    The American cent is smaller. Made of pot metal with barely any copper. Yet it still costs more than a cent to make.
    So, those penny coins are prob worth more than face value for their metal content.
    But hey, check and see. You might have a rare one that would be worth selling.
    Good luck and God bless.

    I like your 1955 Two Shillings Coin design. I’ll have to keep my eye out for one of my own.

    These 1983s only come from certain sets! Not found in circulation so far.

    Sorry I was not clear.

    I was making the point many people appear to mistake this common coin for something rare.

    1983 is the coin. Not 1971.
