    Fun with reject coins

    Was dumping halves on Saturday and found a few foreign coins. During the bag change, I saw a pile of coins attached to a magnet. Teller said I could have them. Scored a 1943s steel cent and a bunch of foreign. See below.

    Nothing seems particularly valuable in the foreign.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    I agree Sag. I haven't checked all the coins out, but mainly my bags of Canadian and Euro currency just got a little bigger. Total haul from this bank visit was as follows (all coins were fairly modern except for the steel cent):

    US '43s steel cent
    Canadian quarter x9
    Canadian dime x4
    Canadian one cent
    UK 5 pence
    UK 1 penny
    Euro 2 cents x8
    Euro 5 cents x7
    Euro 1 cent x5
    Mexican 5 pesos
    Mexican 1 peso x4
    5 "Kuna"
    Namibia 5c
    Czech 2Kc
    El Salvador 25 cent. x2
    Brazil 10 centavos
    [A few other foreign coins I haven't identified yet]
    One US clad state quarter - not sure why it stuck to the magnet

    This was good for entertainment in the absence of silver (in the reject tray or in the box of halves I just searched)

    Post the ones you didn't identify yet, and I will gladly ID them for you. The lion coin is an Ethiopian coin. The 5 kuna is Croatian. Check the clad quarter at home if it sticks. It could have just lodged in the middle of two coins that were magnetic.

    2005 Chinese 1 jiao
    Ethiopia 50 cents
    200? Ukraine 1 kopiyka
    Thailand 2 baht


    I can't tell the dates because the pictures are too fuzzy, but the 2 baht seems like post-2009.

    If you save up the foreign, your LCS might pay you per pound... mine pays 10$ makes for a nice silver quarter and a dime or two
    All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost

    My LCS sells them for $8 a pound. I buy those occasionally, and if you buy in bulk like 8 pounds, the price drops to $6/lb. I did not get any silver this time (got a couple before). However, I found a Romanian 10 bani which is worth $80, so that covered the price (I got it as a birthday present, so I didn't pay anything).

    Interesting idea. Sounds like I need to stop in my LCS and see what they have. Thanks.

    Most LCS have a bin, where it's like $0.25/coin, $10/pound.

    reading, writing, Coin Collection
    Or better yet if you have an Ebay account, weight them and sell them on Ebay. Someone will buy them as coins for their kids or grandkids. I use to do that same thing when my neice came over and she wanted to go through Auntie's coin collection. I handmade her a little plastic canvas treasure chest and put all her coins in it. Would take her with me to the LCS while I was buying silver and she would go through the rummage bins.

    Hugs and Smiles, Garoulady

    But you have to pay eBay fees.
