I want to sell these coins and need help grading them and also please! let me know if there is any coin that has extra value
Some coins are in excellent condition, almost looking un-circulated, but I wouldn't know how to grade them properly
Any help is welcome.
Photos are small size, but I can send more detailed photos of individual coins if it helps

Many thanks in advance!

Hello and
The British florin (top left) is too worn to be worth much. I can't make out the date - is it 1920 or 1926? If 1920, only worth silver melt value in that condition. 1926 would have a small premium as it's a scarce date. This coin is 50% silver, like the 1947-64 Australian silver coins.

I'm sure the Australian collectors out there will chip in soon.

Better pics of the 1945 and 1952 would be a help as these are the only ones that might have a better value. Don't expect too much as the place is awash with them.

unc about 10-20 post 1945, pre-1945 is different and depends on date and variety and most important condition.

I Estimate it to be 105 dollar AUD at the moment however thats only from a quick glance.

grading is only an opinion and also note I don't think any would be worth professional grading.

Thanks for the replies. I have attached a photo of the 1926 florin and front & back of the 1945 and 1952

Any estimate of how much I can ask for them is welcome

Where is the best place to get a good price for the coins? I saw some coins for sale on Ebay but it's probably not the best option out there right?

Probably online - in spite of the fees you'll probably get more money for them there.
Selling them to a dealer won't get you much I don't think.

These coins are worth bullion value only.
Maybe a slight premium for a couple.

the 1952 are pretty good especially the right side in the middle and the 1936 ones (note this is not profession advice, just some hobbyist have no bias), remember ebay cost 10% of final listing sold price invoice about 1 week to a month later, plus a paypal fee of about 2.5% so total about 12.5% is taken from you however if you are selling something with a very small market it might be worth letting people know on ebay as has more eyeball, note customer support is very bad tho.

Those coins are deceptive in looking shiny and new, but in reality the condition is not UNC not even close.

The 1945 is gFine at best, George is very hazy, 1952 is a gVF - better - but still a $10 coin rather than $100.

Your 1926 UK is good to very good and maybe twice melt, a scarce date but not a great example.

Top row - VG, gFine, VF, gvg(1936), Fine
Next row - VF, VF, gFine, VG, AU (Coin on the right end is a stunner and very nice!)
Bottom row - 1927 VF, 1951 Fine/gFine, aVF, gVF and Fine.

The 1927. 51 and 54 Florins have little value above melt unless AU or UNC for the 2 50s ones.


I agree that $105 for lot is fair, and would start them at $80 for all of them.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
