Somewhat Recent Finds

Do you have a 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.

In January these are all the coins I found in my change.
  1. 1942 Canadian 1 Cent valued at $0.10 in VG-8
  2. 1998 Canadian 5 Cents valued at $0.15 in MS-60
  3. 2002P(ND) Canadian 10 Cents valued at $1.00 in MS-63
  4. 1989 Singapore 50 Cents valued at $0.45 in XF
  5. 1946 Canadian 1 Cent valued at $0.10 in VG-8
Mostly Canadians, also the oldest Candian coin I ever found was at that 1942 and it was at Starbucks.

The strange one was the fifty cents piece from Singapore
Here's a shot of the edge with some writing. It says REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE (lion's head).

Here's the stats for this coin...
Type/Country: 50 cents / Singapore
Year: 1989
Mintage: 20,046,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.45 in XF

A note to all you New Yorkers Scott A. Travers will spend two valuable pennies this weekend. He already spent a 1914D cent valued at $350.00 buying a pretzel from a clueless vendor in Time Square . He will spend this weekend a 1908 cent and a 1909S VDB cent valued at $200.00 and $1000.00 respectively. This is why I always check my change.

I've never bought from this guy but he seems to have a good rep. I have bought ebay lots before and the last was 300+ foriegn coins for about $30.00 when I graded and summed each coin it came up to about $30.00 but I see these lots that 10 years down the line the value will double to $60.00.

It is better to invest in quality over quantity.
