2007 East Caribbean States Quarter

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

Hooray for tourist, they are leaving some non-Canadian finds. It's been almost a year since my  last East Caribbean States coin popped up in my change. Makes me wonder who leaves the warm Caribbean for cold New York City.

There is gap on the books between 2002 and 2007. Now this may be correct but seeing how sometimes I find recent coins are not always listed it may take a decade or longer for the books to catch up. Luckily this one is listed but no mintage figure is given, I doubt it is rare.

Reverse:Sir Francis Drake's Golden Hind
Members of the East Caribbean States according to Wikipedia are as follows:

 Antigua and Barbuda
 Dominica
 Grenada
 Montserrat
 Saint Kitts and Nevis
 Saint Lucia
 Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Granted some these places have issued their own coins but these coins as well as the older British Caribbean
Territories (Eastern Group) coins and currency flow throughout the islands. Trinidad & Tobago, British Virgin Islands, and Guyana also see these coins often.

Here are the stats for this coin...
Type / Country: 25 Cents / East Caribbean States
Year: 2007
Mintage:  Not known.
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.25 in XF

Oh the IRB seen on the base of the queen's neck is the designer, Ian Rank-Broadley, initials.

I really get a kick out of your posts. I feel like I become smarter with each visit to your blog. ;)

Our coins aren't marked with the designer's initials, but our paper currency is, correct? Why is that? (If that is the way it is.)

I have a coin from Aruba around here, somewhere. I saw it when I was cleaning up and thought of you. :)

They are marked with the initials some times with up to three different ones.

Got a strange assortment of coins I recently came upon.

1968 British New Pence XF
1985 Brazillian 50 Cruzeiros UNC
1972 Malta 5 Mils VF
1979 Indonesia 5 Rupiah UNC (Made of aluminum this coin looks and feels like Monopoly Money)
1976 German 5 Deutsch Mark XF
1968 German 2 Deutsch Mark AU

Man said...

1968 British New Pence XF no such thing, check the date and country.

1985 Brazillian 50 Cruzeiros UNC about $0.65
1972 Malta 5 Mils VF about $1.00

1979 Indonesia 5 Rupiah UNC (Made of aluminum this coin looks and feels like Monopoly Money) about $0.25

1976 German 5 Deutsch Mark XF about $4.50
1968 German 2 Deutsch Mark AU about $7.50

David M said...

Sorry, it was a 1968 British New Pence 10 in XF

Also if it matters, I realized upon second inspection the German coins both have a 'G' mint mark.

Man said...

1968 British New Pence 10 in XF about $0.25

The 5 Mark is the same.
The 1 Mark is now about $6.00.

David M said...

I've just realized another mistake I made. The 2 Deutsch Mark Coin is 1969 not 1968 and I didn't think this was a big deal until I learned they changed the portrait on the obverse between these years. Thank you for your service and patience as I was remembering the coins from memory.

Man said...

also made a mistake meant to write...
The 2 Mark is now about $6.00.

2 Deutsch Mark Coin is 1969 not 1968 and I didn't think this was a big deal until I learned they changed the portrait on the obverse between these years.

The 2 Mark is now about $6.00 if no portrait.
The 2 Mark is now about $2.25 if portrait.

I've got a question about 1965 dimes. I know that the Coinage Act of 1965 removed all silver from circulating coins, but what I read was that coins were still made of silver through 1966 but were dated 1964 to avoid confusion. What I'm asking is what year(s) were 1965 dimes made and is there a chance they could contain silver?

Thanks in advance

Man said...

They were made from December 1965 through July 1966.
And yes they overlapped with the production of silver coins.

If silver and 1965 these are known as transitional dimes, Breen-3761 is always easier to google.
A few have been found the last I saw sold for about $5,000 in AU-55 (Almost-Uncirculated).

Some 1965 silver dimes are from silver of other types of coins and those are also worth thousands.

So the chance is very rare but it did happen.

David M said...

Let me guess, the only way of definitively ID'ing one is by weighing it?

Correct, but some bad people have taken 1964 dimes and modified the 4 into a 5 so it probably would still need microscopic views.

Hi, my mom has a old penny from colonial Trinidad and Tobago...how much do you think it is worth?

Man said...

old penny from colonial Trinidad and Tobago

What year?

Also any description of both sides may help.

If you mean East Caribbean States Quarter about $0.25

Oops, this is the wrong one.
It says *British Caribbean Territories*

Man said...

It is the same starting in 1966 the changed from British Caribbean Territories to East Caribbean States.

Yours is the last quarter before the change of name. Still it s just $0.25.

I found an East Caribbean states quarter, dated 1999, in the most unlikely of places - on the ground by a bus stop in southern California.

It's not in bad shape. How many of these were minted, please? Is it worth anything to a collector? Thanks.

Man said...

East Caribbean states quarter, dated 1999

About $0.15
The amount made is not listed, it is assumed they are in the millions since they can be found easily. Past numbers average 2 million.

I have quite a few coins I'd like to know the value of.
1. 1989 East Caribbean States quarter.
2. 2005-D Kansas US State quarter, miscast. The edges are really smooth from the result, but the rest of the details below the surface are still great.
3. 1943-P US Nickel F15 grade
4. 1919 US Penny G06 grade
5. 1964 US Quarter AU53 grade
6. Canadian Centennial penny
7. 1903 Indian Head US Penny, VG08 Grade
8. 1923 Buffalo Nickel, G04 Grade

--No extra value, sounds worn or damaged since this type of error is not possible.

3. 1943-P US Nickel F15 grade about $2.00
4. 1919 US Penny G06 grade about $0.25
5. 1964 US Quarter AU53 grade about $7.10
6. Canadian Centennial penny about $0.03
7. 1903 Indian Head US Penny, VG08 Grade about $3.00
8. 1923 Buffalo Nickel, G04 Grade about $2.00

Ah, thanks. I am really curious about the quarter still though, like I said it doesn't look like any kind of wear you could see on a coin that "new"
I also forgot to mention that the copper isn't visible from the side either. http://imgur.com/a/SLFuO Pics if you'd like to take a look.

The shot of the edge is very blurry so I cannot tell.
If possible a clear photo of the reeded edge above Wash. head's and another shot of the reeded edge next to the last A in AMERICA.

The rim is very worn and looks looks someone sanded the coin.

The only other is to weigh it, maybe it is an off-metal error.
Use a 0.01 gram scale.

Pyrestriker said...

Unfortunately it wouldn't take a clear shot with my camera of the quarter I did notice some of your posts about different coin errors. http://imgur.com/a/dFDgp The Indian Head penny seems to have a raised bit of metal over the 'A' in America. How would this affect the value?

Man said...

That is damage, the entire coin is severely damaged and cleaned, it's about $0.25.

Recently came across a 2004 East Carribean States quarter. It is in decent but circulated condition. Is the approximate value .25 or higher?

What do you think that would be worth?

In MS-65 which is a high grade but not perfect it would be $320.00
