They are more proof that I anything can be found on your change. Although the trend lately has been much more foreign coins then old U.S.A. coins. It has been quite a while since I've added anything good to my U.S. collection from my change alone.

Here's the stats for these four coins...
Type/Country: 20 Pence / Great Britain
Year: 1994
Mintage:67,131,000
Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
Value: XF-45 $0.45

Type/Country: 5 Cents / Canada
Year: 1993
Mintage: 86,877,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: MS-60 $0.15

Type/Country: 50 Ore / Sweden
Year: 2005
Mintages: Unknown.
Metal: Bronze
Value: XF $0.10

Type/Country: 1 Euro Cent / Italy
Year: 2002
Mintage: 1,348,899,500
Metal: Copper Plated Steel
Value: UNC $0.25

Those were back in November and then yesterday I found a 1942 Canadian Cent in my change at Starbucks.

I said a few months back that I was starting to find more foreign coins then old U.S. coins. It has come to the point that I haven't found an old U.S. coin in months. I am also finding stranger and higher denomination foriegn coins, not just pennies but 20 cent, dollars and stuff with 250 on them.

Well good luck with your pocket finds for the new year.

i have the pennies from 1938 to 1952 and just wanted to know what they were worth thank you

Man said...

Each penny would average about $0.10.

If any of them have errors they may be worth more but those are rare.

Man said...

1929 $20 bills are kind of rare and have a brown seal they average about$35.00 in very fine condition. except for Dallas(K) and Sab Francisco(L) that average $100.00 in very fine.

In perfect crisp mint grade they sell in the hundreds. If it is a star note they sell for thousands.

Man said...

2004A $20 bills are very new and I heard of light or off colored seals on the note but also some people have been bleaching them.

As these real ones are bad ink mixture and may in $20.00 it brings $350.00 at auction if certified.

I don't know if this link works but here is a real one LINK1

and here is the place they sell them LINK1. You may need a free account to see the auction.

50 cents in vietnam currency about $0.01 in currency exchange
1 dollar in french currency about $0.01 in currency exchange

Correct it is obsolete, but it still has collectors value.
About $0.15 in very-fine.

If there are 3 lions on the shield it is English.
If there are 1 standing lion it is Scottish.

It is like this, but I want to know the current value for it.

Either a Struck Through Grease or weak strike error.

Both have no extra value.
