Welcome to the Bahamas

Do you have a coin form the Bahamas Island 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.

Continuing with some decent looking coins from the bag I bought is some from the Bahamas.

While half of the coins were normal circulated types they did include some proofs. Which is not all that great because the circulating issues were actual rarer then the proof. For example the 1972 10 Cents had 11,000 coins minted while the proofs numbered 35,000. It's harder to find a brilliant uncirculated than an untouched proof.

Obverse above.

Reverse below.
These coins were made by the Franklin Mint in the U.S.A. in matte, special uncirculated, and proof. The little stylized F on the reverse is the mark of the Franklin Mint. Matte is basically the circulated coins, special uncirculated is like proof but all completely mirrored. Proof has the background mirrored and frosted designs.

Starting from right to left.
Here are the stats for these Bahamas coins...
Type/Country: 10 Cents Proof/Bahamas
Year: 1972
Mint: Franklin Mint
Mintage: 35,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $1.00 if untouched

Type/Country: 25 Cents Proof/Bahamas
Year: 1971
Mint: Franklin Mint
Mintage: 31,000
Metal: Nickel
Value: $1.50 if untouched

Type/Country: 50 Cents Proof/Bahamas
Year: 1973
Mint: Franklin Mint
Mintage: 35,000
Metal: 80% Silver
Value: $7.00 if untouched($1.00 in crease since 2008)

These were sold in sets but if they were less then perfect they were cut out and put into circulation by collectors.

I have a 1970 uncirculated set of 9 coins from the Franklin mint still in display card. One each $5, $2, $1, $.5, $.25, $.15, $.1, $.05 and $.01. What is the set worth and what is the silver contet.

Man said...

1970 uncirculated set of 9 coins from the Franklin mint still in display card.

The entire set is about $35.00.

50 cents has 0.2667oz silver
1 dollar has 0.4666oz silver
2 dollar has 0.8662oz silver
5 dollar has 1.2526oz silver

In high grades the value doubles most people break up the set and try to get the silver coins graded. Because of this I don't know how many intact sets survived so the price may vary.

I just bought a 1966 $5 silver piece with Queen Elizabeth II on the front and a coat of arms on the reverse. I'd say it's in nearly uncirculated condition. Any idea of its silver content and market value? I bought it for $12.50US.

Oops... previous comment... I meant to say it is a coin of the Bahama Islands

About $13.00 it has 1.2526 ounces of silver this was the first $5 dollar coin made by the Bahamas so they made about 100,000 which is common.

I HAVE A BAHAMA ISLANDS 1971 NINE COIN PROOF SET, NEVER TOUCHED. MINTED BY FRANKLIN MINT. DO YOU HAVE A VALUE??? JIM

Man said...

BAHAMA ISLANDS 1971 NINE COIN PROOF SET, NEVER TOUCHED.

About $30.00 unfortunately these 9 piece sets have been one that lost value over time.
Sold for $35.00 in 1971 they now commonly sell for $30 or less.

The ones pictured in the post were broken out of proof sets and thrown in change because someone was looking for the best of the best coins and sending them to get graded. A perfect grade would make one coin worth ten times more then the original set.

I have a 1966 Bahama Islands two dollar coin. Can you tell me if it was ever in circulation? Thanks. Marc

1966 Bahama Islands two dollar coin. Can you tell me if it was ever in circulation?

They were initially released for circulation but from the few sources I've heard they stopped late the same year.

Until 1970 the rest of the silver coinage were not meant to be circulated but had made there way into circulating through other ways.

I have a one dollar coin similar to the ones at the top -- but different. On the obverse, there is a beautiful image of Elizabeth in the center. "Elizabeth II" is not at the bottom. "Elizabeth II" is on the left side. "Bahama Islands" is on the right side. On the reverse, there appears to be a conch shell in the center. Across the top is "ONE . DOLLAR . 1966"

Yes, all Bahamas.

I appreciate very much your information.

We're in the process of taking inventory of a collection that has been sitting around for decades.

So, far, we've cataloged about 25% of it, and from that quarter we have additional coins from...

Panama
Cook Islands
Barbados
Belize
Bermuda
British Virgin Islands
Cook Islands
Coop. Rep. of Guyana
Fed. Of Malaysia
Jamaica
Netherlands Antilles
Papua New Guinea

Would you have a suggestion as to where we could find values for those?

Man said...

Because most of these will likely be proofs, sets, or special coins then they can't be found on any online site.
Trying eBay may help on some values.

What you need is the 1901-2000 World Coins book published by Krause even an older one is fine because it has pictures to identify non-circulating coins.

If you have a list you can post somewhere online and I'll take a look.

I will post in case you're interested in how this entire collection unfolds.

In addition to these, we're going to have a lot of American coins as well. Peace Dollars, some 1800 vintage halves and dollars, Carson Cities, etc.

Hi Man,

I think this about rounds out the foreign coin portion of this collection. I will mention that all of these have the original boxes, folders, sealed plastic, whatever they were issued in. All of the COA's, papers, etc., are intact also.

Is there some standard grading for sealed coins? For example we have a number of Carson City Dollars in the original packaging, labeled BU. Not real sure about the brilliant part, as I've looked at hundreds of different coins this week.

Anyway, would that rate an MS64 as they were minted, sealed and tucked away never meant for circulation?

This is the hardest part of trying to assess all of this, and is going to make the US coins the most difficult.

No grading coins involves breaking them out there package.

Carson City Dollars in the original packaging, labeled BU
These are true original packaging but for these types the package adds no value.

Trying to find value of US coins is difficult even with a grading book so it's fine to assume a lower grade. The collection you listed is great I assume the US coins are also great and at the end if you decide to sell a higher auction site like Heritage could help. They even deal in stamps.

I don't know any good stamp sites, sorry. Try a forum.

Well, I think we now have a pretty good idea of what we have. Still a lot of self educating to do in order to approach this from some sort of intelligent position, so we're diving into the books.

Do you have an opinion on the software, Coin Manage?

I cannot thank you enough for your willingness to dig out this great amount of information. This has really given us a baseline to work from in a lot less time than I think we could have accomplished on our own.

I will monitor your blog to stay in touch. If an opportunity presents for me to return the favor, I will look forward to it.

Man said...

From what I here it is a fine software but I'm really old fashioned using ledger books and pencils.

The Jamaican Specimen Sets are listed as 9-coin proofs but that should not change the value much.

Thanks for kind words.

Soon, I'm going to look back at your posts and resolve the issues we had there.

I used a scanner for those proofs because even with a coin forum helps my camera setup was bad.

Apparently you need a two light set up and a black background plus a steady stand.
It got complicated so I just scan them.

Ghost said...

Our scanner results are hit and miss. All of these being in plastic hampers that effort a bit.

I have a camera stand, so that takes care of the steady hand thing. I use a black base with three lights.

I still have to use white poster board, and sheets of paper placed strategically to get the right diffusion and something for the coin to reflect.

Like you said, it gets complicated.

In the original package it's about $900.00.

Of the few sales I've seen over the last year it has been without the package and $750.00 and $1,000.00 for repackaged slab(can't remember the grade).

Last year the prices went high with the gold prices now they're settling down but it has been months since I've seen a sale of older Bahamas Gold Sets.

Hi Man,

Ghost here with a follow up question.

I don't think I mentioned that this list of coins you have been very helpful with are First Day Issue, all in their certified envelops and folders with seals intact.

Does that make any significant difference in the value?

Ghost

Man said...

First Day Issue, all in their certified envelops and folders with seals intact.

Barely. Most collectors see First Day Issues as a scam, since what is truly wanted are coins that are perfect and unblemished.

That said they still pay 1-10% extra for first day issues.

About $575.00 it is gold so virtually everywhere will be good to sell.
Places like Ebay or Heritage are good auction sites.
If you can find a local dealer then expect to sell in person for about $500.
A private sale on a coin forum can get a good price with less hassle.

I'm not sure.

It is First Day Cover Issue. In a blue case. Regardless of the price it is very exciting. How does one know where to go to get an actual value on such things, even stamps. And thanks for the quick response.

Man said...

"It is First Day Cover Issue

This is more of a novelty and this would be sold as a coin collectible. Most buyer would rip out the coin for grading and sell the stamp for $3.00.

A little research shows the stamp is common and worth at most $3.00, it is a FDC issue.

With packaging your set is at most $300.00.

The value depends on the collector. It has no set value it depends on the auction.

Ebay is the best place to check for price, now 4 are being auctioned from $369-$399, but none have been sold meaning they are overpriced.

Is it really gold ?


Yes it is real gold.
50% gold the remainder is likely silver or copper. It is about $290.00.

For that issue I was talking about a 1975 not 1995.

1995 no golds were issued.

In 1975 two types did exist.
$100 5.46g 0.917 Gold 0.1610oz flamingos
$100 18.01g 0.500 Gold 0.2896oz parrot

Hi!

Can you tell me what it's worth?

1984 25 centimo Bahamas coin with the Graphium Idaeoides butterfly design. Proof like.

What you are describing is a Philippines 25 Sentimo and in high grade is about $2.00.

It should say REUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS on the front.

If not take a picture of both sides and put a link of it in these comments.

I have a set of three Bahamas $100 gold coins, dated 1987, 1988 and 1989. All three coins are in proof condition and are still in the plastic cases and presentation boxes.

Tom said...

Sorry, should have clearly stated in my previous post that I would appreciate your help in establishing a value for the three coins. Thank you so much for your help!

Man said...

Bahamas $100 gold coins
1987 about $200.00
1988 about $200.00
1989 about $195.00

The 1987 and 1988 have a mintage of 849 and 854 respectively which makes them somewhat rare so I don't have full auctions values to draw from.
I gave the lowest possible value.

Hi

On each coins there are 2 different dates , 1974 on the front - 1973 on the back .
No mistake from seller , says that is so
What do you make of it?
Thank you. Louis

Man said...

It is listed correctly.

From 1974 to 1977 these $50 dollar gold dove coins had 1973 on the front and the real date on the back.

It's about $80.00.

Man said...

Wait the 1973 Bahamas 150 Dollars is listed incorrectly it should be a 1974.

Suzanne said...

Unless I missed it reading your very impressive answers, I would like to know the first year the Bahamas put the coat of arms on their coins. I know it was due to declaring independence in 1973. But were the coins struck in 1973 or 1974? Thanks for the information.

Man said...

were the coins struck in 1973 or 1974?

1974

1973 is part of the design not the date they were struck.

It is like America's 1776-1976 coins.
Made in 1976 but with the independence date of 1776.

Hello,

The Government of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas presented my wife with a $25 silver coin in 1985 in appreciation for her environmental work there. It has a coat of arms on one side and 2 flamingos on the other. It is in it's original presentation case. We'd appreciate learning what it might be worth.

Thank you!

The coin itself is about $85.00 only 1,000 were made.

But this one maybe worth more as a collection if you had photos, newspaper articles, a plaque or certificate of her achievement and if it was presented by a high ranking official.

Still unless Queen herself presented the coin or your wife is famous then any extra value above $85 would be small.

Yes there are fakes mostly from China. They are actually very convincing.

They are about $40.00 but last time I saw one on sale was years ago it was $65 and ungraded. I have not seen any more on sale so be careful if the shipping is from China.

Recent World Book Prices $10 Belize 1975(Matte)
2000 XF=$12.50 UNC=$45.00
2003 XF=$12.50 UNC=$45.00
2004 XF=$12.50 UNC=$45.00

2008 XF=$12.50 UNC=$45.00
2009 XF=$12.50 UNC=$45.00
2010 XF=$12.50 UNC=$45.00

Starting in 2006 they adjusted the categories to add BU at $55.00.
The reason is although they are low mintage all of survived and most have been graded.
They all graded very high BU or above so they lost most of their value.

If you grade yours and it grades VF or less the others will become more valuable.
If your grades BU or better the value may even lower.

Unless Perfect-70 it would not be worth much, for now.

Man said...

To add something...
today low mintage for non-U.S. coins is 10 or less.
More than 100 only adds a slight premium.

It was originally $15.00 in 1973 and still is $15.00 if in the original package and in high grade.

Unfortunately yours is becoming damaged and worth maybe $10 or less.
Yes take them out and place them in a safe holder this will slow down the damage.
