Hi all,

I have a ridiculous amount of old GB coins and my plan is when I am having a bit of a bad time (occasionally need to spend 2/3 days in bed at a time).  To help keep my sanity ( or loose the little I have left) I was wanting to go through them to see if there was any scare ones in there.

Problem is I have no idea what the semi/key dates are.

Has anyone come across a cheat sheet that I can reference for the different denominations.  I have found loads of options for USA but haven't been able to find one for GB.

All the best,

Chris.

I find this site useful for UK predecimal coins.  It will give you a decent indication of which coins are worth looking out for.  

There's a page for each denomination, which then shows the information by monarch and date.

Take the prices as a guide rather than being the truth, but at least it gives a good relative idea.

Hi Chris, most of the Victorian coins worths some money, also Edward VII halfcrown and Florin.  This is only a brief statement, for details, you may also refer to the site on top of that mentioned by Stuntman, www.allcoinvalues.com.  Also auction results of London Coins, Spink etc. will be helpful, however the precise value will depend on date, die and quality of the coin.  You may also post some pics here and see if someone may give further ideas towards it.

Thanks for the info guys, will definitely check out the sites you have mentioned.

I have pretty much separated the majority into denomination and monarch, I may end up breaking them down into years next, should take a while but it can be very therapeutic.
