Hello, I have these Spanish coins I got from an estate but know nothing about them. Can someone tell me if they are worth anything? None of them are magnetic and the gold coin weight is 12 grams. Thanks

Hello and welcome.

Sad to say, but most of these appear to be replicas. I've given them arbitrary numbers, to help with identifying them.

#1: this is a commonly seen replica; we've spotted them on the forum a dozen times or more.

#2: appears to be genuine.

#3: This isn't Spanish, but is actually a replica of a Crusader-era coin from Cyprus.

#4: Replica, sorry. Probably not real gold.

#5: It appears to be a Reyes Catolicos early Spanish real. Replicas are common; we'd need to see close-up pics of this one.

#6: I can;t tell if it's a cast fake, or corrosion from a shipwreck. I suspect cast, but I'd need to see the edge.

#7: appears to be genuine.

#8: this one is actually a replica of an English sixpence. That deep scratch next to the shield is probably where someone has carved away the "WRL" replica-mark.

Coin number 6 is a casting of a very recognizable Pillar Dollar salvaged from the 1733 shipwrecks off the Florida Keys. I was told by Bob Weller, who made the mold, that that coin was picked because it had such a distinct look. The casting you have may even have damage evidence along the rim at 12:00 on the side with the date (which on these coins is actually the reverse) because they were originally cast as keychains to sell to tourists.
