Why does the dime have a beaver on it?

because, if beavers didn't exist they wouldnt have taught the native americans about the factors of 10, so as an act of gratitude they decided to create a 10 cent currency and as tribute make the beaver the national symbol of 10.

Does oxidation affect the mass of a penny?

However, the surface oxide layer is not very thick, so in practical terms the difference is going to be small (and since the total mass of a current US penny is 2.5 grams and only 2.5% of that is copper, even if every bit of copper were totally oxidized we're talking about a mass difference of well under 1%).

What is a1967 Canada's Centennial quarter worth?

As of 02-05-2011, it is worth between 2.73 and 4.37 USD (Silver = 29.14 USD/troy oz). The lower number if the coin is 50% silver, and the higher number is 80% silver. Both %'s were minted that year of 1967.

Other than a density check or other analytical measurement, it cannot be determined based on appearance which you have. I do not know the total mintage of each percent type, but 48 million were minted total.

You may safely assume 65% silver on average for your collection, each valued at 3.55 USD.

What is the value of a 1930 Australian Penny?

An Australian 1930 Penny is the rarest coin that has ever been released into general circulation in Australian history. Only 3,000 were minted and of those, 1,500 still exist and are trading in todays market. They are still arguing about why the 1930 Penny was released at all.

There are only 6 proof coins known to exist, 3 in museums and 3 in private collections.

Depending on who you choose to believe, a proof 1930 Penny might go for anything between $250,000 and $500,000 AUD. One of the private collectors has recently declined an offer of $1,000,000 AUD for his proof coin. Another has accepted a $650,000 AUD offer.

An Australian 1930 bronze Penny (George V), uncirculated and in absolute mint condition could fetch up to $275,000 AUD. If it is in less than mint condition, it might fetch as little as $18,500 AUD.

A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation.

Authentication and verification of such coins is vital. There have been replica coins, as distinct from forgeries, made. Any replica coin should have some indication on it that it is a replica.

The Australian 1930 Penny has recently been described as the "Holy Grail" of the coin collecting world.

Is the PCI grading service out of Rossville GA a reliable company?

PCI is a more recent grading company. In the past, they have had less experienced graders than the two bigger companies PCGS and NGC. However, they recently added a well respected grader to their staff and seem to be consistent with their grading standards. They are cheaper than the PCGS and NGC and you do not have to be an ANA Member to submit coins for grading. They also run monthly price specials on their website. As stated below, they encapsulate problems coins.

One thing PCI does that I feel does a dis-service to their clients is that when they grade a problem coin (let's say it is scratched), they will label it (for example): AU - 50 Details (Scratched) Net VF - 20". My personal feeling is that they should grade the coin and identify the problem. The "Net" grade should be left up to the owner, seller or buyer, whomever that might be. In this instance, the coin has a condition and a problem. By giving it a "Net" grade, PCI is stepping outside the arena of grading and stepping into the arena of assigning value.

Overall, yes they are a reputable company. Geared more for the common collector, not just the high priced expensive items.

AnswerHave they moved recently? The last time I sent them a coin they were in Tennessee. If it's the same company, yes, they are reliable. They are also less expensive than most. I like the fact that they will encapsulate a "problem" coin (scratched, cleaned, etc., as long as they are not counterfeit or altered) that others will return ungraded. I like to know that my scarcer coins are authentic even if they are not up to PCGS or NGC standards of perfection.

Is a 1972-D penny that is goldish in color worth anything?

Probably not if it is the correct weight. It may have been gold plated for some promotion, but if so, the amount of gold would be worth less than the cost of having it removed and assayed for sale. More likely, the coin has been exposed to some chemical which reacted with the copper and caused it to change colors. It is possible that it was minted on a planchet intended for a foreign coin, in which case it may be worth a few dollars.

Chances are, your coin was used in a common chemistry project some time back. In the project, students essentially plate the copper plating of the penny with an addition layer of zinc (only a couple of atoms thick in some cases) and then heat it, mixing the new layer of zinc with the outermost part of the copper plating. This results in a brass coat on the outside of the panny, making it look golden.

What is the value of a 1964 Canadian proof set?

The obvious answer is that it depends on silver bullion value. These sets do not command a price much higher than bullion value, they're kind of a "sleeper" series of collectible coins that, even though currently NOT priced very much above bullion, should increase in collector value over the years. I recommend as an excellent site to price out individual coins, although the listings are for circulated coins. Prices for the proof-like (the correct term) Canadian sets from 1964 range from $52-$56 from online places, eBay usually has them going for around $45-48.

What is the value of a 1971 Canadian coin?

Canada issues six denominations of coins, so your question isn't specific enough.

In any case, most Canadian coins struck since 1969 are only worth face value unless they are in uncirculated or proof condition and are in their original packaging.
