      Most of them tend to be £5. A bit more in perfect condition, and of course it depends which one.

    Got a Balliwick of Guersey coin from 1997 (50p), a 1926 and 1941 half penny & a 1995 Manx 2p.

    I’ve got lots of other coins but I want to know if these are worth anything to collectors. Can’t seem to find references to them anywhere.

      I think those are probably common inexpensive coins, but I’m not really up on Ch. Islands and IOM.

      Yes, but probably not a huge amount. It’ll depend on the severity and condition.

    I have a really odd 20p that doesn’t say a word of English and has some Asian symbol on it. My grandad told me it was worth £40 but I don’t know if it’s just an Asian coin that found its way over here and looks like a 20p. Do you know anything about it?

      No idea. There certainly are foreign coins that are 20p shape but without seeing it I don’t know what it is.

      It would need to be checked, initially weight and size and then probably metal composition to make sure it isn’t plated or stained. So it’s anyone’s guess.

    I have a 1982 20P coin with GRADE A stamped across the neck and shoulders of the queens head side.
    Is it unusual?
    Never seen one before.

      Sounds like someone has done that for whatever reason during the coin’s lifetime.

    I’ve got a magna carta 2016 2 pound coin. I can only find the same coin but with a 2015 stamp online. Any ideas?

    Hi there

    I’ve got a 2013 Milner’s Tower (Isle of Man) 50p. Was wondering what it is worth. It appears to be in good condition aside from light scratches. But nothing extensive.

      This website is for decimal coins 1968 to now! But the answer is it depends on condition.

    Do old ten shilling notes now have any value? I tried to submit this question earlier and was told it was a duplicate, but I have not had any reply to any of my questions.

      I don’t usually respond to valuation requests, as I’d be doing it all day long. This is a decimal coin site so a 10 shilling note is outside of the scope. (normally in used condition the 1960s ones are worth the 50p face value and not usually much more. In perfect condition, with a significant serial number or older ones can have more potential).

      Sounds like the Churchill Crown. Tons and tons of them around. After the apocalypse there will probably only be cockroaches and Churchill crowns!
