Bermuda is Warm

Do you have a coin from Bermuda and want to know its value? Leave a comment 

Wind speed should never be higher than the temperature, 17 degrees Fahrenheit and 50 mph wind is not fun.

Although this is common Canadian weather these two coins give me a tropical vacation, coinwise of course.

At this exact moment Bermuda is 65F and raining, which to me sounds wonderful.

I got these two in December of 2009 in my change while shopping for gifts, the stores were packed and I got quite a few nice coins that I will share this month. I assume someone just got back from a Bermuda trip and decided to shop for gifts not caring that their money was funny.

Here's the stats ...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / Bermuda
Year: 2004
Mintage: 800,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.40 in XF


Type/Country: 25 Cents / Bermuda
Year: 2004
Mintage: 800,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.75 in XF

I usually take pictures using the sunlight which gives coins a great natural look but recently I've been using artificial lights. Not just artificial lights but halogens or those swirly new high efficiency light bulbs. Both kinds are horrible, sure I can find some proper lighting but for these coins I'm not too worried.

I will keep adjusting but winter is not the season for natural light plus who new these new light bulbs take minutes to fully light when cold. 

Do you have a Bermudian 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.

My son recently found a 1867 Indian Head Wheat Cent. It has clearly remained in circulation. It is worn nearly smooth. Has on small spot of verdigris on reverse. Is there any value other than the cool fact that it is still in use?

Shame about the verdigris it is about $2.50 if the verdigris can be contained or even removed.

Normally in a very low grade like "almost-good" (AG-3) it is a $25.00 coin.

I have this 2003 25-cent Bermuda British coin. It has Queen Elizabeth on one side and I believe a dove or some bird on the other side. Any idea on what the value of it might be?

the second is a $10 series 1934A with a serial number of G76706065A. seal and serial number are green and has a "Bank of Chicago Illinois" mark on the left side with a "G" in the center.

No gold coins were ever made of this type.

It is plated with a very small amount of gold for jewelery.

It is considered damaged and has no extra value.
