Do you have a foreign coin and want to find out its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
First a twenty-five cents coin from the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, 2000.
Second 25 cents from Canada, 1987, eh.
The Bahamas quarter in extra fine condition is valued at $0.30.
The Canadian quarter in extra fine condition is worth about $0.30.
These two are not rare coins and living in New York City you tend to get an abnormally high amount of Canadian coins. While this is only my third Bahamas coin it's my 245th Canadian coin. Summer is a good time to collect coins because a day trip to Canada and you can get a handful coins, if your not that drunk.
Going on vacation is also a great way to pick some coinage. Travel in and around the United States will get to places like the Bahamas on a day trip. Trips these days are cheaper then ever and makes getting foreign coins simple.
Foreign coins tend to be much less valuable then American ones. The most valuable coins are American coins and European coins from hundreds of years ago can be worth quiet a lot also.
The value I attribute to these coins come from the 2009 Standard Catalog of World Coins I have yet to buy a new one.
Also Canadians are our friends to the north.
