Samoa First Day Cover

Do you have a foriegn 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 got this from tbirde56 it's a for the First Day Cover 1967 50 Sene from Samoa.
Although the value listed below is $2.00 it is worth more because it is sealed in a first-day envelope. I would double maybe triple the price for this example.



A first day cover or envelope is issued by the country or mint for collectors to get the coins first struck. These coins are usually higher in detail, sharper and available before public gets the coin. They are sold for a premium.

The U.S. mint also sells first day covers for quarters and nickels.

Here's the stats for the coin...
Type/Country: 50 Sene / Samoa
Year: 1967
Mintage: 80,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: Unc. $2.00

Ungraded they tend to sell best on eBay for $20 or more.

Grading may cost more than the coin is worth. You always try several local dealers or check coin forum to see if anyone is buying.

But with most odd items, eBay is your best bet with good pictures and if your a good seller.

If not just keep it until you are sure you can sell for decent amount. Value only grows over time.

Hello. I have a nickel and looks like a 1968. The rim is raised pretty high and can fit a penny inside it. Its hard to read the date because all the way around it on both sides is raised. Is this worth anything besides 5 cents? Thanks

Does not sound like a true raised rim error because the date would not be affected.

Were it real about $150.00 but I think it was spooned by someone trying to make a ring.

It should be seen in hand by and expert.
