    Japan, S. Korea, Portugal, Colombia, Spain, England, and Cuba. I don't think so. The shilling is 50% silver, though.

    The others aren't worth much, if anything. I am partial to the South Korean 5 won with the turtle ship reverse. The turtle ship was a pretty amazing warship:

    I have several turtle ship models and a few Korean coins and notes that show it. Here is my 500 won:

    @adelaide888 ...you can find out for yourself. Assign a rough, ballpark grade then go to NGC’s World Coin Guide, it’s listed on their Main website under “resources”. You can type the country, then the year...then either enter or choose the denomination. You will have to learn to date the Japan 10 yen first, but that is a fun adventure too...if you like a challenge.

    I don't know much about the values, but may I share an interesting trivia with you? For the 1 peseta Spanish coin (2nd row, 2nd from left), the year of mintage isn't 1947 as shown on the obverse. The actual year of mintage is hidden somewhere else on the coin - if you can find it.:)

    BTW the shilling is Scottish, during the time from 1937-1970 shillings were struck with Scottish or English reverses. The English reverses are a bit more common.

    I mean I’d probably pay $2 each for the Portuga, Cuba and Spain

    I'm liking the toning on the colombian coin.
