Not a Dime

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.

Just a quick update. I have not searched through any more coins instead I'm throwing them in a jar until I have more free time.

One exception was this ten cents I just got back in my change. It came from a bank so you think the nice lady would have noticed it's not an American coin. Of course I don't mind but one thing is a teenage cashier giving me funny money but a mature teller seems odd.

For a second I thought oh that's nice she knows I collect but I never talked to her except to confirm that I want larger or smaller bills.


Not too bad because Bermuda currently has 1:1 exchange rate with the U.S. dollar so this coin is still worth $0.10 even in less then very fine condition.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Cent / Bermuda
Year: 1996
Mintage: 1,000,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.10 in VF

That is a Bermuda lily on the reverse in case you just had to know.

Nice images. Again, seems to hold up my theory of there being loads of countries using images of plants on their coins too.

When I saw the Queen, I thought it was going to be one of "ours", but when I read Bermuda, I stopped standing to attention and sat back down again.

Hi,
I have hundreds and hundreds of coins, domestic and foreign... all silver. I did find one 1866, three cent liberty coin in almost perfect condition. How much is that worth? I also have many, many canadian coins, but can't seem to find much info on them online except through you. They are all silver. Fr example, I have 2 1864 Quebec dollars and one 1865 canada dollar. Any advice on where to look?
Thanks,
Sona

About $150.00 if not higher.

1864 Quebec dollars
It's a dual date 1964? If so about $8.00
1865 canada dollar depends on what is on it.

If your into collecting get the World Coin By Krause it is available in a DVD or online. While the book is not complete it is very good.

I have three coins from Mexico that are in amazingly high detail. I am wondering if they are valuable. An M.1956 Cinquenta Centavos which is bigger than an American 50 cent piece. A 1966M 20 centavos which is larger than a quarter but smaller than 50C piece. and a 1945M Cinco Centavos which is slightly bigger than a quarter. They all appear to be bronze.

Your site is great an I learned a lot. Thank you and I will be a constant visitor from now on.
