Not much. In 1984 Sweden eliminated the 5 öre denomination because inflation had made it almost worthless, about half a U.S. cent.
None of the coins made for general circulation have any silver. Only the U.S. San Francisco Mint struck any silver bicentennial quarters and that's just 40% silver. But not all S mintmarked coins are silver. They issued proof and uncirculated 40% silver coins and proof clad coins with S mintmarks.
7-4-11>>> Assuming the coin is circulated and has no mintmark, the 1902 Morgan is a common date. For an accurate assessment of value the coin needs to be seen and graded. Most coins have seen heavy use and show a lot of wear. In general retail values for circulated grade coins are $36.00-$45.00. Values are a market average and only for coins in collectible condition, coins that are bent, corroded, scratched or have been cleaned have far less value if any to a collector or dealer.
Security strips in US currency were first added for the 1990 series of bills.
Retail values of this date/mint Morgan in circulated condition are fairly high at $530.00 in the low grade of G-4 because the coin is rare in all grades. If you actually have a example of this coin I suggest having it graded by one of the professional grading services.
The Gold American Eagle (GAE) is an official gold bullion coin of the United States. One of the world's most popular coins, GAEs are offered in four sizes: 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz. Their weight in ounces signifies the guaranteed stated amount of actual gold weight in troy ounces these coins contain. The market value of the coins is generally about equal to the market value of their gold content, not their face value. Their actual selling prices vary daily based on the current spot price of gold. The coin that you have is a 1 oz GAE that was produced in 1987, a year after the release date of these beautiful gold coins.
This coin is normally called a Morgan dollar after its designer. The "American Eagle" term is only used for the modern series of 1-oz. silver bullion coins that carry an artificial $1 denomination. Please see the Related Question for more details
No US dollar coins are dated 1908, look at the coin again and post new question.
Coins with errors need to be seen for a evaluation, the type and condition of the error determines value. A dealer or collector can do this.
You didn't state what country it's from. At that time all countries in the British Commonwealth have the Queen's image on their coins, so it's not enough to serve as an ID.
Under the assumption that the most common source would be Canada, your coin is worth about $6 for its silver content. If it's from another country please post a new question with that information.
50 ounces of silver is worth around $600 each ounce is worth $11.66 (I rounded it to 1$12, otherwise it would be around $583)
Almost all penny auction sites operate on the same principle which some people have compared to a form of gambling.
Come check out www.pennypavilion.com for great auction items and for a limited time get 50% more bids on every package we have. So kick off your shoes and join everybody. There's an auction just for you running right now!!
None of the above answers the question and is just a poor excuse to try and try and desperately advertise their site. What does gambling have to do with trust. Gambling is an issue of how it is perceived by bidders, not whether a site can be trusted.
Can a site be trusted. The answer falls into to parts. Ethics and motivation. Ethical aspect: In any line of business there will be those that try and rip others of. It is a universal problem and on that laws try and prevent (not always successfully). And in any business area the majority of businesses are ethical...and penny auctions are no different. most will act truthfully and honestly. some will not.
Motivation. The basic model of penny auctions (pennypavillion included) is to win at the expense of the bidder. In other words they only make money form their customers losing money on average. the more the bidders lose...the more the site makes. This is because all the existing sites list their own products for sale. Therefore there is a real motivation to twist the model to ensure bidders lose so they make more money. They want auctions to run on forever so bidders keep spending money bidding.
Sites like eBay that are the traditional marketplace for products, which bring buyers and sellers together offer a more solid model because they do not win by bidders losing. Quite the opposite. They win by buyers and sellers coming back again and again because they're happy and all is fair, and want auctions to end (rather than go on forever) to earn their income. So they are 100% aligned with buyers. Exceet is the start of a new generation of pay per bid (including penny auctions) site that create a marketplace for pay bid auctions and are driven by the same fair model as eBay. They have are motivated by fairness and returning customers.
Your bullion piece contains 0.1 oz of gold and sells for about $85-90 as of 02/2009. Its value will change along with the spot price of gold.
Note that the $5 denomination is purely artificial.
I don't know the exact price but i do have the same coin with me.Please who knows the original value of this coin please contact me on my mail id: firstname.lastname@example.org. i 'm ready to sell this coin.
$1000 if worn, $1100 if only some wear shows.
Both are retail prices and are for its gold value, which is now higher than its value as a collectible. The intrinsic value of the coin with gold at $940.30/ounce is about $910. If you try to sell it to a coin dealer, you will probably get a little less since dealers are normally a little lower down the food chain in the precious metals market. The value of this or any coin depends heavily on the condition. The 1898-S is a common date, so you will probably not get a substantial premium over its gold value unless it is uncirculated.
Look at the coin again. The US never made any 5 dollar silver coins of any date.
It's worth the price of 1 oz. of silver. That changes every day, so any specific value posted here would be out of date almost immediately. While it's not normal WikiAnswers policy to say "use the Internet", that's the best approach in this case. You can check a site such as kitco.com for the latest conversion factors.
Also, note that this is a bullion coin sold for its metal content and not for spending. The $1 denomination is artificial.
No but probably in different countries
Japan is the only country that uses the Yen as their currency.
As with any coin it depends on its condition. If it's visibly worn then less than $10.00 but if it's blazing red with luster and red it could be worth as much as $1000 or more. It could be worth anywhere in between depending on it's grade. In order for it to be worth anything at all really it has to be uncirculated, the circulated ones are quite common.
If you're referring to a standard US weight ounce, 11.34 silver dimes weighed 1 ounce.
Explanation: Silver dimes weighed 2.5 gm unworn, and a standard US weight ounce is 28.35 gm so 28.35 / 2.5 = 11.34.
The standard composition has been an alloy of 75% copper and 25% nickel. That alloy has been in use since 1866 except during WW2, when "nickels" were made of copper, silver, and manganese to allow diversion of the nickel (the metal, not the coin) to the war effort.
