Old and Foreign Coins - A big list


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have had a pile of random coins floating around for years - As I'll be moving soon, I thought I'd sort them out.

Is there anything interesting in this list?  I haven't googled the value of them all as I don't have the patience.

Photos can be provided on request.

Let me know!

Are the post WWII 'silver' coins something other than circulating coinage?
i ask b/c 'silver' coins after WWII aren't silver and 'silver' coins after 1919 are 50%.

Standing with Russia. They tried to bury us. They didn't realise we were seeds. Wise up and stop being a pawn in their games.

We live in a time when intelligent people are being silenced so that stupid people won’t be offended. When you realize someone is stupid—don't waste your time or energy arguing with them

Anything silver (pre-47) on that list is melt value unless in higher grades. The 1889 Crown is £20-25 if average circulated.

The only coin I can see that potentially has some value is the 1869 Penny.

Prices realised on Ebay are between £10 for slicks with just the date showing, £40-50 with britannia outline visible, and if in better condition a lot lot more than that. It's probably the only coin worth throwing on here with a photo so I can give you a better idea.

Everything is definitely circulated. No proofs in this pile of metal.

That's good to know - I like the fact they are referred to as 'slicks'.  I thought that nearly blank pieces of copper might not be anyone's cup of tea.

I'll get a photo up of the 1889 penny soon as I can. Thanks!

The point i was making is the silver coins up to and including 1919 were 925 silver.

After 1919, then up to and including 1946 they were 50% silver. Because of the folly of WWII the country went bankrupt so after that the silver coins are cupronickel.

So for example this coin is 50% silver.

You have these sixpences as 925 silver - they are cupronickel - most member will know this but i mention this to avoid anyone being confused.

That's what happens when I copy and paste because the coins all look the same to me! I checked a couple against some numismatic websites but I'll update each one. Sounds like they are only good for Christmas puddings!

Let me know!

It would be highly unusual for any of these coins to be "floating around", as they all have a specific gravity greater than 1, although there were some recent discussions about metals with a lower density.

As you mention that you have a "big list", I suspect they will not continue floating for much longer.

Many TSF members report have had "boating accidents"

Time to abandon ship!

Don't put cupro-nickel in puddings. Nickel is a known allergen!

Because you have included things like 1967 penny, my guess is that most of the stuff is near junk numismatiically.

You may have spent more time listing it than it's worth.

I guess the 1869 might be "date only".

I / we would pay a few thousand pounds for it if "mint" (without a hole).

Circulated does not mean something is not proof. "Circulation issue" means not proof.

While we are at it, none of the "copper" coins will be copper, most of them will be bronze.

Some of the later "copper" ones may be copper plated steel, but I am mainly being pedantic.

Most TSF members could tell the difference between silver and cupro-nickel at about 10 metres, possibly by smell, but mainly by colour.

@LawrenceChard Thanks mate - that's really handy info. I'm painfully aware it's mostly junk but I'd been meaning to check it all for years so it's one more chore ticked off. There's nothing there anyone would pay good money for, trust me. Perhaps the 1889 Crown but if I can verify its my great grandads then I should keep it.

Love to see example of Victorian penny, especially the 1869.
