Hi all,

I heard recently that an Irish 20p coined in 1986 was worth a bit of money. Is this true and if so, how much is it worth roughly?

Thanks in advance.

Then you heard wrong. I already answered this question on this thread. This is the post:

It's the 1985 20p thats very rare. The only scarce 1986 coins are the halfpenny, 10p and 50p which were only minted to complete the official 1986 set and not released into general circulation.

Hi, I just registered tonight so I hope I get this right and post in the right place.

I'm trying to find out if some old banknotes are of any value today. My boyfried recently found some that he was given a few years ago....they are:

1 £20 dated 21-3-62, signed whitaker and (somebody!) Some tears

3 £1 dated 17-9-70 and 17-5-74, signed whitaker and murray, 2 ok, 1 with tears

1 £1 dated 17-7-89, can't make out signatures, very good condition

1 £1 dated 15-11-43, signed Adams. Looks more English than Irish but it's got bank of ireland on it so???

Few coins too but still trying to figure out what some of them are and where they're from.

Hope someone can help (Thanks in advance)

Bye

Hi,


I'm looking for the Irish 5p coins from about 10 years ago, just wondering if you would know where I could find them in bulk. Tried the central bank but they said they dont sell old coins to the public !

Any thoughts, let me know. Looking for several hundred.

Thanks

Depends what you mean by "good" condition. If it was uncirculated with original red lustre remaining then yeh, otherwise no, not really. They are quite common.

I have a few hundred of them here. Pm me for further details.


Also if anyone knows wher ei can get the coin display cards. Empty ones so i can put my coins into. E.G. the decimal set display cards. I know you can get them in georges street arcade but i am looking for a large quantity of them. any help would be greatly appreciated

Why don't you ask him for price on bulk, let me know what price he quotes you and I'll tell you if it's a good price. I presume you're talking about the clear hard plastic cases with the inserts. Theres at least 4 different types of those. If this is a new venture for you I would advise you not to get carried away as decimal sets and even pre decimal "type" sets don't fetch much money. Particularly when they are made up of common dates, or even worse circulated coins. I would advise you test the water first by buying a few cases.

Cool thanks for your advice. I was in georges street the other day and all i could get were the decimal ones with no hard case just a plastic pouch thing. I bought a couple just for my own use. think they were €1.50 each. Myself and the girlfriend have come across 100's of coins her dad had. Just thinking of doing something with them. Do you know where i could get the display boards and or the hard plastic covers for them? Thanks again

He'd be able to get them for you too, just tell him what you want. 1.50 is fine for the inserts with a soft pouch. The ones with the hard cases should cost around 3-4 euro. I get them from the same place he does, it's from a dealer who doesn't have a shop and only deals with the trade. You need to decide exactly what type of sets you want to put together, theres a few different decimal and a few different pre decimal types and also a Euro one.
