Coins of Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands, all have low numbers and are relatively cheap. Many years you have mintages of under 1 million down to a few thousand.

For silver coins, that offer bang for your buck, you can't go past Fiji to 1946 - low mintages, eye pleasing designs and VF coins of most Florins are $20 or less.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Pacific Island coins are relatively cheap but you would need collectors in the future to have interest in these regions
for the prices to spike.

Even for China collectors who pay top dollar for their own coinage, they are only interested in China coinage. Coins from their neighbours
like Taiwan , Japan, Vietnam attract little interest from them.

And looking at the lifestyle of the Pacific Islanders, collecting coinage doesn't seem top of their agenda.

French Louis XVIII and Charles X branch mint silver is undervalued at any price IMO. The problem is finding any.

I used to buy Tibetan Ga-den Tanka's at around 4 each. Now I see them going for 25 which is quite a jump in 20 years or so. But I suspect that ship has also sailed.

A long time ago, it was possible to find pre-1961 Soviet and Imperial Russian coins in coin lots on a regular basis.
Not anymore.
Despite this, the prices in Krause IMO are quite low.

One thing I will say is, the prices for the 1911-26 pennies are a bit high IMO. $1 for a Fine-graded coin?

I'm going to let you all know another coin on my own personal list.

1973 - 1979 Liberia 5 Dollars
https://www.NGCcoin.com/price-guide...duid-1441772
https://www.NGCcoin.com/price-guide...duid-1441948

I've never seen the 1973 non-Proof coin (mintage of 500), so can't say much there, but even the proof coins I think are quite underappreciated. They are large coins, proof, eye-appealing, silver, and all now 40+ years old.

Mintages:
1973 Proof 28,000
1974 Proof 20,000
1975 Proof 9,017
1976 Proof 3,683
1977 Proof 1,640
1978 Proof 7,311
1979 Proof 1,857

The more common dates sell for 3-6 dollars over their silver value, there's just so little room for demand to fall, there's nowhere else for them to go but up. The lower mintage dates noted above do sell for a premium, but if I find them for a decent price (30-40 dollars or so), I gobble them up quickly if they're in good shape. The NGC and PCGS populations for these are small, particularly for the scarcer dates. However, I believe PF69 and PF70 grades for even the more common dates should, at some point in time, demand quite the premium. Of course, this is all just my own opinion.

The zinc Allied Occupation of Germany coins issued from 1945 to 1948 don't have huge catalog values, but in all my years of collecting I have never encountered one of these coins in a dealer's junk tray, and hardly seen any for sale at all, even though there were lots of British troops in Germany at the time they were circulating and I'd have expected some to have ended up in the UK.

Numister - well this Pacific Islander disagrees on your comments about our lifestyles and the value.

The fact they are cheap is good for me as I can get quality at a good price.
Quite a lot of us brown people do collect coins and stamps.

Notice the last four letters in my name - That's my real first name and its a Maori word meaning "Man" and "God of the Forest".

Back on topic, I think early (1928 - 1945) Irish coins are way undervalued too. The simple but effective animal images and the fact the Shillings/Florins and Half crowns before 1946 have a good silver content (75%) make them eminently collectable. VF/EF coins cost me no more than $20 - $25.

I believe Newfoundland coins to be extremely undervalued, most have low mintages and even the 1947's silver coins with mintage around 20K can still be sourced for a few dollars but are hard to find.

While it is not really valuable because it is drilled and plugged, this Newfie gold $2 is a keeper bought for melt price. I like the way they rhymed cents and pence, eh.

Now that we have been for more than a year in a "Numismatic Mania", are there any good buys left or is everything bid into the stratosphere and it is time to sell?

Newfoundland coins have not gone up in value. They have been undervalued for decades, or so people think.

Coins from Portugal seem to be fairly priced.

It is definitely more difficult but there are still quality coins which are still underappreciated and undervalued.

A large part of my collection is comprised of World coins.
U.S. British, European and Australian coins take their equal part in it.

For me, one of the most under appreciated coins is the
U.S BLP Indian $5 Half Eagle:
the unique, very distinctive design shared with the similar Quarter Eagle.
