2004 Bahamas Cent

Do you have a coin from the Commonwealth of the Bahamas 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.

Tracking my own finds over the past four years I notice a trend among foreign finds. There are four countries I always find in these percentages, 70% Canada, 1% Great Britain, 1% Bermuda, and 1% Trinidad & Tobago. The remaining 27% are from all other countries that come in randomly.

This year has been different since I have not found any of my 1% regulars. Then recently I found a Bahamas coin my second in the past month and only the third since July of 2005. It would not surprise me if this is associated with new travel patterns.


Great starfish design it is perfect for summer time. Overall the coin is pretty in hand but has some sticky stuff on half of the surface. Probably why it was thrown into circulation and with the same dimensions as a regular U.S. cent it easily passes among a sea of cents.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Bahamas
Year: 2004
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper Plated Zinc
Value: $0.05 in VF

Update: I didn't even notice on the reverse the N in CENT has some die cracks. These are common among cents so I will keep the same value listed. The rest of the lines are just scratches.

I think this is the only starfish on a coin I've ever seen...

Palau, Australia, and ancient Celtic coins are some that also used a starfish but the one above is one of the nicest.

2005 bahama coin like the one showing with the top picture of ur coin but in the back is 2 fishes, not starfish.

This must be a 10 Cents Bahamas coin with two fish facing in opposite directions.

It is just $0.10 in fine.

The rainbow is just toning, it is natural and does not change the value.

In very-fine condition the coin is about $0.02 for collectors.

1984 Commonwealth of the Bahamas, One Cent Starfish on rear. But the only thing different is that it's dented in perfectly, it's been pushed in on the facing, like is was manufactured that way and it has a hole covering the "of" in Commonwealth of the Bahamas, I'm assuming it's for a necklace. But, I was wondering why it is dented in, and the value?

Possible error called Die Cap when a coin gets stuck to the machine making it and it gets repeated pounded.

Unfortunately by making a necklace out of it it lost all the value. Might have been $50.00 if proven real, but now either way it is just metal value $0.02.
