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.
Where is a Wheat Penny in that lot ?
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'm not getting my hopes up, just having fun and learning lots! But somebody's gotta have a rare one kicking around somewhere! Why not little old me? no expectations, but
To my surprise a coin with 1,454,856,250 examples minted can be valued so highly.
Problem is people read too much of this!?
And not enough of this:
Wait. So do I actually have something of value here? Or have I misunderstood?
Yep. I should know better at this point
Ah well. The almost heart attack was a lovely way to spice up my day a bit
I was making the point many people appear to mistake this common coin for something rare.
1983 is the coin. Not 1971.
