1987 Morocco Dirham

Have a Morocco coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Each time there is a new ruler in Morocco they have a reform and change their coins and currency. Maybe that has changed recently but over the last hundred years they reformed about ten times. This one is the al-Hassan II version that lasted from 1962-1999 and under that rule there were two reforms. Oh boy it gets tough if your not familiar with the history.


This one is very worn for being so young. Must of seen some tough times.

Here are the stats for this...
Type/Country: 1 Dirham / Morocco
Year: 1987-1407
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper-nickel
Value: $0.30 in Fine ($0.11 in exchange value)

Do you have any Moroccan coins 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.

For some reason, all of my Moroccan dirhams (pre-2002) are really worn down like your coin. I guess they circulate a lot.

I have to agree, the 2002 I found 2 years ago is very sharp. Plus I found all of them in my change so they circulate well.

But it can also be they were no struck with enough force.

*Meant to say "not stuck" instead of "no struck".

Still not quite sure what you are getting at but this is a Blogger blog and currently I'm using their platform.

They offer free services and I have slightly modified the HTML, CSS, and a few other template things to give it the look I want.

I have a coin, 1 Dirham - Hassan II 3rd portrait, where the portrait is up-side-down. Does that affect the value?

1 Dirham - Hassan II 3rd portrait, where the portrait is up-side-down.

If you mean a Rotated Die error, it may have extra value. Just a few dollars in low grade.

But this Dirham has coin alignment so when then date is right-side up and the coin is flipped left or right the head is upside-down.

32,850,000 were made of copper-nickel worth about $0.30.

30 were made of gold and are rare. I doubt you have the gold version.

My comment about the coin with the number 5 , this coin has a silver ring with a brass center that has the head and on the back with the date and value has the coat of arms with the 5 below.

Sounds like a 5 DIRHAMS from Morocco the center should be stainless steel and very magnetic.

They are about $5.00 in extra-fine.

I have one of these but the head is upside down on the back is it worth anything?

If you mean coin alignment that is normal, no extra value.
