1998 Bahamas Cent

Have a Bahamas cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Summer is here and even better than going to a Bahamas resort is finding one of their one cent coins in my change.

Yeah not really.

I would rather be in the Bahamas but here is a nice little reminder that I am not on vacation.

 

Bahamas cents are odd in terms of years minted. They tend to skip years since 1985 even though from 1974-1985 they were minted every year without problems. The years skipped were 1986, 1988, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2008. It is not clear if any dated 2010 or later are circulating. Also actual mintage is sketchy.

This is just for the Bahamas cent the other Bahamas coin series has even more gaps

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Bahamas
Year: 1998
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper Plated Zinc
Value: $0.03 in F (Fine)

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.

I *really* like this coin. Something about the starfish.

You're funny today. I like that, too. :)

Something about the starfish.
The design is so simple, dots and lines, yet it looks so complex.

I'm in a happy Canada Day mood.

Oh, where are my manners?! Happy Canada Day to you.

I have two 1 cent coins from canada. One is from 1977 and it's in good condition worn a little more on the front than the back and it's circular. the second is from 1984 and it has 12 sides and in okay condition. How much are they worth?

About $0.02 each for metal value but it is nearly impossible to sell because they are so common.

Hi,

Can you tell me if it has any value other than a penney.

Thanks,
John

I have a Bahama One Cent coin with the date 1985. According to the Obverse Info in the link above, I thought all the new one cent coins had "1985" on them. Am I misreading their info and I actually have a coin minted in 1985?

Thanks, Paul

The information on that site was just for the exact coin pictured.

So yes you are misreading.

Each Bahamas cent like the one I posted has its own year. Your 1985 is from 1985. A 1987 would have 1987 on it.

Value for all is about $0.03 or less if circulated.
