Hi:
I have some old irish currency notes and coins and am wondering if anyone knows if they would be of any value:

10/- Ten shilling note dated 06-06-68
£5 - Five pound note dated 05-09-75
£10 - Ten pounds (Punt) dated 02-07-99
£5 - Five pounds (punt) dated 16-01-97

silver Coins:

Two Dublin centenary issue 50p coins dated 1988 with dublin seal
One £1 Millennium coin 2000 with boat and oars design?
Three £1 coins dated year 2000
Two £1(punt) coins dated year 1994 & 1998
Mixed collection 5p,10p(2 sizes),50p coins
One 6d coin dated 1964 & one 3d coin dated 1964

It's all about condition, but assuming what you have is of average circulation wear, I don't see anything there of value in the coins, except the 1940 1d and 2 farthings. About 5 Euro per coin. The rest of the coins are worth little over their face value.

Someone else might fill you in on the notes, but unless they're in unused or there abouts condition, I doubt they'll be worth a whole lot over their face value.
