South Africa silver coin

Post by Snak » Mon, 03 Jun 2002 12:03:12



Hello, I have a South Africa Silver coin from 1951.
Coin is 5s (no idea what does that stand for )
Georgivs Sextvs Rex  in once side with a man face
and Suid Afrika with a deer on the other

Any idea what's the value of such a coin? prety heavy coin. (may be worth
less since it is done as a pendant)  I got it like that already a few years
ago.

If you can help  let me know.

Thanks

This is a 5 shilling from South Africa, with King George the 6th (of England)
on the obverse.  These coins from 1951 range in price from $5 to $35 (proof),
but because yours is in a pendant, it may have to be broken out of its bezel in
order to realize the money.  It may be worth more as a nice piece of jewelry.

Hope this helps.
