      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.
