Hello My Foreign Friends

Do you have a foreign coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I've found hundreds of foreign coins in my change from over 50 countries and dating as far back as the 1940s'. I've also occasionally bought foreign coins, low grade of course. From Eastern Numismatics Inc. I've bought world coins by the pound when they are on sale, I've also bought from eBay.

Here's my most recent eBay lot.
If you click on the image you'll see them in a larger image.
Here is the rear of the same coins.


Here's the stats for the coins pictured....
1962 Bulgaria 1 Stotinka (F) ....................................$0.10
1964 Czechoslovakia 50 Haleru (VG)...........................$0.10

I have an Egyptian 1 pound coin that I think is dated 2008. The reverse is doubled but only in the brass colored section. What's it worth?

About $6.00 but the market for foreign errors is not as stable as U.S. errors so it may be difficult to sell.

Depends on the type of error but most do not have any extra value.
