Italian Euro Cent

Do you have a Euro from Italy and want to know its value? Leave a comment

This little Euro is one of several I found over a month ago then the finds stopped. Not sure what happened but it seems that my area has exhausted the current "funny money" supply. Starting in December the tourist will swarm the city and start leaving more impressive coins...I hope.

Still this little Euro is nice and I will stretch the few finds I have over the next weeks.

 

This is the second most common of all Euro coins with a mintage over 1.3 billion. The obverse has the Castle del Monte, a famed 13th century castle on top of a mountain. The small R is for the Rome mint and the small E over D is for Eugenio Drutti the designer of the obverse.

The reverse has the value and the typical Euro design created by Luc Luycx with his initials next to the globe.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Euro Cent / Italy
Year: 2002
Mintage: 1,348,899,500
Metal: Copper Plated Steel: 94.35% Steel 5.65% Copper
Value: $0.05 in F

My 9 year old son has recently started to show interest in coins, so my father gave him some coins he and his father had collected while serving in the military. I was wondering if you could help me out with what they are and if they are of any value. He has a silver 100 yen piece but can't figure out what year it is. 1949 1/2 piastre from cyprus w/ scalloped edges. 1951 1 rupee with king george the sixth. 1945 coin with Republica Peruana on one side and 20 Centavos with a feather on the other. 1963 coin with Angola on one side and 1 Escudo and Republica Portuguesa on the other. I can send pics if you need and I also have a few others. Any help you can give us would be great. Thanks

100 yen piece but can't figure out what year it is.
This is difficult since the year is under the 100 the first symbol means "year" the next is a number the last is another number.
Use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_numerals to find the year it would be a low number then post it here.

1949 1/2 piastre from cyprus w/ scalloped edges.
About $0.15

1951 1 rupee with king george the sixth.
What country? Because India did not make one.

1945 coin with Republica Peruana on one side and 20 Centavos with a feather on the other.
About $0.25

1963 coin with Angola on one side and 1 Escudo and Republica Portuguesa on the other
About $1.00
