1972 Rhodesia Cent

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

The one and only Rhodesian coin I own.  There are few things I know about Rhodesia off the top of my head. It was a British colony, it became a republic, and their money as "Rhodesia" lasted from 1964-1977. So it was short lived yet they do have a few special sets.


Certain Rhodesian proof sets are very rare, even unique. 
  1. 1964 (8-coins), Total sets = 10, Double set — $250.00
  2. 1964 (4-coins), Total sets = 2,060,  — $50.00
  3. 1966 (3-coins), Total sets = 2,000,  — $1,600.00
  4. 1968 (2-coins), Total sets = 3,  Double set — $2,250.00
  5. 1970 (6-coins), Total sets = 3,  Double set — $5,000.00
  6. 1973 (2-coins), Total sets = 2,  Double set — $1,500.00 
  7. 1975 (8-coins), Total sets = 1,  Double set — $7,000.00 
  8. 1975 (6-coins), Total sets = 4,  — $5,000.00
  9. 1975 (4-coins), Total sets = 4,  — $3,500.00
That is right the 1975 double set had a mintage of 1 and is worth about $7,000 the last I checked. The coins are pretty simple in design but the fact so few were made gave them greater value. Notice that anywhere else 2,060 would be considered a low mintage but not here when compared with 4 or less. 

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Rhodesia
Year: 1972
Mintage: 10,000,000
Metal: Bronze
Value: $0.10 in VF

Hi - I have a 1975 7 piece mint set.
Any idea of the value thanks?

Man said...

1975 7 piece mint set

Assuming from Rhodesia no such thing.

This may have been put together outside the mint.
For the unofficial set in Mint State about $20.00.

Price drops a lot if condition is lower.

Unfortunately your links did not work.

There are 6 coin and 8 coin sets but no 7 coin sets.

These sets are very rare worth over $5,000 each. Since I cannot see your pics I assume you do not have an official set instead you have the unofficial non-proof coins.

About $15.00

I have a one penny 1962 Rhodesia with no hole. would you know the value? Thank you:)

Man said...

one penny 1962 Rhodesia with no hole.

Are you sure it is a Rhodesia and Nyasaland coin?

It should have a hole possibly an error I have not seen at auction. I'll estimate $10.00 in good shape but I would have to see it.

Sammy said...

Hi Man,

REGARDS,
SAMMY

I have a set of 6 Rhodesian coins in a little black folder with coins of Rhodesia on the front they are all 1975 except the 21/2 cent which is 1970 any feedback would be great thanks

Man said...

Does not sound like an official set. Instead sounds like a type set made by a collector since the 2 1/2 cent was only minted in 1970 it would not be included in a 1975 set.

If Uncirculated each coin is worth about 10-20 times face value, so about $0.10-$5.00 for each coin.

--Broken set, depending on type they may still be worth hundreds. It needs to be seen by several coin experts in hand.
