    The foreign coins are probably demonetized. You can pick them up for 3 or 4 for $1.00 at flea markets.

    The other US coins are all normal. All are worth face value except maybe the Buffalo Nickel. Could be worth $1.00 or $2.00

    That depends on what you mean by "good." The Canadian quarter is silver. The wheat penny is worth 2-3 cents. The buffalo nickel is worth around a dollar. The Canadian Toonie is worth $2 in Canada. The rest are just common American or foreign change.

    Yeah, the only ones I'd hang on to are the Buffalo nickel and the wheat penny.

    The Buffalo Nickel is the best of the lot, followed by the Wheat Ear Cent. Spend the rest snd welcome to CT.

    The 1942 Canadian quarter is 80% silver. About $4 in silver value

    I’d check that Georgivs vi out as well as some of those euro’s. Just my two cents! Good luck.

    I think that they are all current now, actually. The only one I am not sure of is the Swiss coin, but since they don't use the Euro, it is likely good. The Euro and Canadian should be spendable at face (but dont spend the silver quarter!).

    The good thing is that you're asking for advice which means you're at the very least semi interested. The great thing is that you have something to build on if you're interested in collecting. It all starts somewhere and which one of these coins interests you the most?
