Please include as many of these criteria as possible in your question to ensure an accurate evaluation of a coin: the denomination, the country of origin, the year of minting and the condition.
The Actual Gold weight (AGW) is .24187oz of pure gold.
I've been looking to buy one of these. I have seen the price on these go from $289.00USD unslabbed to $1400+USD for a perfect proof MS70 slabbed coin at online dealers. As long as you keep the coin in it's original mint packaging, you could expect to realistically get around $225+USD for a proof...
1882 silver dollar value$1 in 1882 according to inflation would now be worth $21.95 in 2009Determining the base silver value-A Morgan silver dollar is 90% silver and with one of them being 26.73 grams that would mean there is only ~24 grams of silver or about 24/31 of an oz of silver.Depending on...
A US nickel is an alloy of 25% nickel and 75% silver.   Current Canadian nickels are made of plated steel. Older ones are made of pure nickel.
  For any coin, well-struck means it was minted with dies that were not worn, on a planchet with no flaws, with enough pressure to bring out all the details in the desigh.
Yes, money that has been written on is still legal tender, but money that has been torn is not.
The date on the coin and any mintmarks are needed. Post new question please.
You are asking about a 5 Shilling coin from South Africa (KM#31). 300,000 of these coins were produced for circulation in 1947, plus an additional 5,600 in Proof. It was issued to commemorate a Royal Visit to South Africa that year by the King and his family. The coin is "Crown sized" (38.8mm in...
US $1000 bills printed during the 20th century were black, white,  and green.    Printing of denominations higher than $100 ended in 1945 and  distribution was halted in 1969.
The first real person on a dollar coin was President Eisenhower in 1971. No silver dollar coins have portraits of real people.
The "figure" is of course Miss Liberty.    The coin is a 1927-S Liberty Walking Half dollar struck at the San  Francisco Mint. Most show heavy wear and retail at $8.00-$16.00  better grade are $45.00-$150.00 and coins having light to slight  wear sell for $300.00-$870.00
Money in itself does not cost anything. But what it represents is highly valued.
  That's the way the coins were designed. Several US coins have a TRVST because the designer wanted a 'classical' look and there is no "U" in the Latin alphabet.

There is no such thing as a Denver Mint 1941 ten centavos coin. The Denver Mint only mints USA coins.
You are referring to a 20 Franc coin from Morocco dated AH1371 (or 1952 AD), under the reign of King Mohammed the Fifth. 20,000,000 of such 23.8mm in diameter coins (Y#50) were produced at the Paris from Aluminum-Bronze; the obverse has a 5 pointed star and the date, as well as some writing in...
Simple question, difficult answer. It depends on how many times you want the penny to land on heads. The probability of a penny landing on heads once is 1 in 2. For it to land on heads twice is 1 in 4, for three times it is 1 in 8, and so on and so forth.
Please turn the coin over and look at the denomination on the back. It's a HALF dollar.
Steelies. Short for "steel cents." Copper was needed for the war, so pennies were cast out of steel.
US cents were never made out of rifle casings themselves, but they  were made from shell casings during 1944 and 1945. These  coins were of course called "shell-casing cents".    In 1943 the Mint struck cents in plated steel to save copper for  use in ammunition. The steel coins were...
If it's an original and not a copy, which is the case in 9 out of 10 in the market, the price depending on condition is as follow: XF 1800$ AU 3000$ MS 10000$ SP 35000$ 20 drachmai 1833 is the most copied Greek coin
The answer is, $2. I bought 27 of them today to use as decoration in an epoxy bar top I am building. Yes, I know they are fake, but I am going to embed them in clear epoxy for show and I do not care if they are worth even a penny. But since I was willing to pay $2 each for them, they do have value....
These coins are no longer in circulation since Irelands changeover to the Euro in 2002. Unless they are part of a Proof or Uncirculated mint set or are individual Proof or Uncirculated coins and in absolute mint condition, they have little or no value.

The Latin phrase E-PLURIBUS-UNUM is the national motto, NOT a type of coin.This coin is a Eisenhower dollar and will likely be worth the same in 2017 as it is today, one dollar.
Take it to a coin dealer. They will probably buy it. However these coins are not rare . They are worth face value unless the are uncirculated or proof. If they have the mint mark "S" they are proof.
As of May 24 2011 The values are as stated. A 1926 Peace Dollar with no mint mark in "poor" condition is worth around $19. One in "uncirculated" or "close to uncirculated" is worth around $470. Even the slightest ware will put down value. A 1926D Peace Dollar in "poor" condition is worth around $22...
If it has a brown seal and the words National Currency, it might  retail for $40 in worn condition, up to $125 if only a bit worn.    To clear things up:   1. Bills are printed. Coins are minted.   2. While coins are made in San Francisco, bills at that time were  only made in...
i just looked on eBay and by the looks of it, the bill is worth around $60- $70.   HOWEVER >>>>Vast numbers of replica bills have been printed over the years and many have made it into the marketplace as supposed "genuine" notes. The Related Link will help you to ID the serial numbers...
Any peso dated before 1993 is now worth nothing, i have a bunch of 1000 pesos notes from 1983 and when i went to exchange it, i was told that its worth nothing, that was a bummer.
Five coins - the cent and four gold coins - were scheduled for  redesign in the first decade of the 20th century. People wanted to  put Lincoln's portrait on a coin in honor of the centennial of his  birth in 1909. By the time the decision was made, work on designs  for the gold coins was...
The last silver certificates were dated 1957. Please look at the wording on your bill, it's a modern Federal Reserve Note. It has no extra value even in uncirculated condition.
A example of the 1873cc Liberty Seated Dime in the grade of MS-65 sold for $891,250.00 in July-2004 The coin has a mintage of 12,400 but records show that most were melted shortly after they were made and no one knows how many still exist. In my opinion this coin qualifies as the rarest.
Not counting commemoratives and other coins minted for sale to collectors, the last half dollar minted in solid 90% silver was the 1964 Kennedy Half. 1965 through 1970 Kennedy halves have a copper core and 80% silver outer layers for a net silver weight of 40%.

It's not clear what you mean by "double stamped" so it's not possible to determine from that description what the coin is or whether it's actually rare. Please post a new, separate question with more information including its date and a description of the doubling. Specifically, if you're...
A Silver Eagle Bullion coin is 99.9% pure silver and weighs 1 oz per coin. The stamped value of the coin is U.S$1 however the intrinsic value of the coin is the value of the silver within that coin. If the the spot price of silver was $30oz at the time of checking, then the value of that coin would...
An Extra Fine, crisp 1 Peso Cuban silver certificate dated 1938 is worth $70, dropping to $4 in Good condition.
Actually if I were you I would not exchange but sell it I also have one and its worth 2.75 if UNC (Uncirculated) it could be worth 13.00
  $3.50 to $6.50. P15 is a plate number and doesn't affect the bill's value.
I'm guessing it would be around 3250 - 4000 dollars.
Almost never. Remember, while Philadelphia has used a P mint mark since 1980 on most coins, cents from Philly are still "plain"; i.e. they don't carry mint marks. Because Philadelphia mints several billion cents a year on average, anything made there in the last 70 years or so is generally not...
There are 7 different possibilities:    With a red seal:    $20-$50 in circulated condition; $250 or more  uncirculated.     With a blue seal:    No letter by the date - $10-$20; $45+  A or B - $5-$10; $40+  C - $20-$125; $450+  D - $20-$55; $300+  E - $200-$500; $1500+  ...
  The images are ON the bill, not IN the bill. Hold the bill very carefully. Look at each picture and move your eyes down to the bottom of the image where you'll find a caption telling you who or what it is.
It's generally easy to tell for coins made in the last 40 years or so, but harder for older ones. The most obvious way to tell a modern proof would be if the coin is in its original mint packaging that labels it as a proof coin. Another way is if the coin is dated 1968 or later and has an S mint...
  If you have a 1960 buffalo nickel, it is a fake. They were last minted in 1938.
An Eire (Irish) cupro-nickel Punt (One Pound) coin, uncirculated and in absolute mint condition could fetch up to £5 GBP. A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation.
Please check your bill again and post a new, separate question. The US never printed bills of any denomination dated 1927, and the last 100 dollar silver certificates were issued in 1891.
The 1885 Liberty Head Nickel is the key date for the series, retail values for coins that show heavy wear are $500.00-$800.00 so if you actually have one of the coins, I suggest you have the coin graded by a collector or dealer. In grades higher than F-12 values are $1,000.00 to more than $2,000.00...
The 1967 centennial quarter is a common date, currently worth just  over $3 for the silver (as of 3 August 2014).
Well, that when you get your plow the coins only increase in value in the game. You see, due to inflationary rates in Farmville compared with the cost of living in blue collar United States the coins have no value AT ALL. It's a game remember...
in very fine condtion about 13 dollars in extra fine is about 14 almost uncirculated is 16 uncirulated 60 is 21 ms-63 is 35 ms-64 is 55 and ms-65 is about 175 the pricing is based off the 2007 prices
Yes, but it's very hard and only experts can get it right. It's also illegal and you will get caught if you do it.
A $500 value implies that the coin is either (a) an average-quality 1867 Philadelphia dime or (b) a high-quality San Francisco dime. Because it's relatively easy for a counterfeiter to remove the mint mark from the latter, you'd need to have the coin authenticated, for example by PCGS or similar....
Test the metals for magnetism by placing a magnet near it. If it is  attracted by the magnet it is not a real silver dollar .Since  silver is not magnetic, there must be other metals in it such of  iron, nickel, or zinc.
Answer . Face value unless it's uncirculated / proof in its original packaging.
Please check your bill again and post a new, separate question.    The last US $2 silver certificates were dated 1899.  There were no $2 bills of any type dated 1923.  
Unless they're uncirculated or proof coins, 5 cents.
Unlike the U.S., Canada has managed to successfully circulate dollar coins. Yours was struck in the first year of pure-nickel coinage so it's only worth face value
Pre-1965 US dimes, quarter and half-dollars weigh, respectively, 2.5 grams, 6.25 grams and 12.5 grams, and thus a pound of any of them would have a face value of $18.14. In 1965, with the advent of clad coinage replacing the previous 90% silver then in circulation, the weight of the coins dropped a...
Most likely someone used a small tool like a metal punch to add the  letter. It's not part of the design.
Circulation issues are still only worth $1 and can occasionally be found in circulation mixed in with "golden" dollars in vending and change machines. There are two rare varieties of proof SBA dollars, both classed as "Type II" issues, from 1979 and 1981.
No. They're all privately-made novelty items. In fact, the Mint uses dies that are "keyed" so a tails-side die cannot be put into the heads side of a press, precisely to prevent anyone from creating a real double-sided coin. Please use this site's Search feature to look for the word DOUBLE and...
Check this related link. You have to determine the grade or condition of each coin, which is often difficult for someone who is not a long-time collector/dealer/student of numismatics, but you can get pretty close on any circulated coin by studing a book named "Photograde" which should be available...
10 cents for the copper-nickel coin underneath and about a penny or 2 for the gold plating. The US never minted gold dimes - they'd be worth A LOT more than 10 cents, after all!
You're very unlikely to find that wording on any $2 bill you may get in change or from a bank. The last $2 silver certificates were printed in 1891. The vast majority of $2 bills printed up till 1963 were issued as United States Notes; those printed since then are Federal Reserve Notes. Both types...
Bahamian's cent is worth the same as the American cent.The Bahamian dollar is worth the same as the American dollar too.
1958 J is one of the lower mintages for 1 DM coins but it's still not considered to be rare in circulated condition. sammler.com, a major German collectibles site lists a value of about $2.25 if somewhat worn. However that value jumps to $35 in Extremely Fine and $125 in Uncirculated condition
There seems to be three values to a coin: 1.) Face Value 2.) Intrinsic Value 3.) Numismatic (Collector) Value Of the three, a coin owner should pursue the highest of the three values 1.) Face Value is the amount approved and printed by the mint of the country it was issued in. For example, a $1...
Average value is 3 to 10 cents.
  == Answer ==   I assume you are referring to a large cent piece, about the size of a half dollar.  An 1828 cent would retail for about $20 if well-worn, up to about 10 or 11 times that if almost uncirculated. 
The "mini coin" gives it away. It's a privately-made replica of a rare 1840 dollar, but not rare itself. It's only worth the value of whatever metal it's made from. Unless the coin's packaging states that it's made of silver, it's probably only silver-plated.
As of Mar/11, the silver content is worth about $27. Because the value of the coin is due to the amount of the silver, proofs are not worth more. They are selling on eBay for about $30 including shipping but because of Paypal fees, eBay fees and shipping, you will get considerably less than the...
The 1934 series only extends to the letter D. You may be confusing  the Federal Reserve Bank letter with the series letter; that's next  to the date, not in the center of the seal.    Please see the question "What is the value of a 1934 US 20 dollar  bill?"
  No. 1943 cents are often called steelies because they were made of zinc-plated steel.
Alcohol does clean a penny because it has 91% that takes away germs and any other bacteria on the penny. It takes about 2 or 3 days to clean the penny but it cleans it for sure I am positive about that I tried it myself. But it only took at least 1 or 2 hours to clean it with alcohol. Now Pepsi I'm...
Because of the silver content in the dime, quarter(s) and half dollar.
The U.S. did not print any $2 bills with that date. If your bill is from a different country please post a new question with that information.
That number may be a security or printing indicator, but doesn't  help to ID the bill. The date is what matters.    If its date is 1976 or later and you got it in change, it's only  worth $2. If it's older, please post a new, separate question with  the date and what letter if any is next to...
The value is around a 1.00 in good shape maybe more
A mint coin is a coin that is almost perfect, it must not have dirt, knocks, nicks, scratches or any other marks on its surface, the only higher grade than mint is Proof which means it has to literally be untouched since it left the royal mint and still have full luster.
Assuming the coin is circulated, the 1899 Philadelphia issue (no mintmark) Morgan dollar is a better date higher value coin. For an accurate assessment of value the coin needs to be seen and graded. Most coins of this type have seen heavy use and show a lot of wear. In general retail values for low...
All wheat cents except those minted in 1943 were made of bronze which is 95% copper. In 1943 cents were made of steel because copper was needed for ammunition. Please post a new question with more details about your coin, including the date and whether it has a mint mark.
Don't assume that every woman on a US coin is Susan B. Anthony. Your coin is called a Morgan dollar after its designer, and carries a picture of Miss Liberty. There's more information at the Related Question. In any case, if you check a history book you'll find that Ms. Anthony was very much alive...
The word LIBERTY only tells us that the coin is from the United States. Please post a new, separate question with the coin's denomination.
American wheat pennies lasted from 1910-1958 I believe.
  Depends on what material it is made of, how large it is, and how well made it is. Anywhere from a couple dollars up to $1000 if it is full weight and real .90 fine gold.
Uh, I think you mean INSCRIPTION. A subscription is an order for magazines, cable service, etc. Anyway, ALL US coins have the motto E Pluribus Unum on them so that really doesn't identify any particular coin and neither does the fact that it has Miss Liberty's face (not just "a woman", lol!) on it...
1923 makes it a Peace dollar. The mint mark is located on the  reverse (tails) side, just below the word "ONE." The possible marks  are:    No mint mark = Philadelphia  D = Denver  S = San Francisco  
The mint mark location on all Peace dollars is between the word ONE and the tip of the eagle's tail. Possible letters are: Blank = Philadelphia (the P mint mark wasn't used on dollars until 1979) D = Denver S = San Francisco
At least two cents for the copper.
If you're referring to a 1965 American dime, none. All 1965 and later US dimes and quarters, and 1971 and laterhalves, are made of a 3-layer "sandwich" containing only copper andnickel. They don't contain any silver, so they don't have any extravalue unless you have an uncirculated or proof coin in...
It's a plate indicator. US bills are printed in grids on large  sheets of paper that are cut apart into individual bills. Plate  indicators tell where a particular bill was located in the grid.
It's called a "plate position indicator". Bills are printed in  groups using metal printing plates; the small letter indicates each  bill's location on the plate.    Modern bills are printed in much larger groups laid out in a grid,  so both a letter and number are needed to indicate the row...
