Hi I have 6 of these in good condition how much are they
Do you mean “how much are they worth”? If so, the estimated values are shown at the top of the page (next to the big coin image). How much yours is worth will depend on condition, and finding the right buyer of course.
Mine are average condition
It’s really not worth selling them in average condition, you wouldn’t get much more than face value. Keep them for your own collection :o)
I’ve one, it’s in absolute mint condition. Are they seriously worth money
Estimated values are shown at the top of the page (next to the big coin image). Be careful describing a coin as “mint condition”. This obviously means a bit more than just really good when it comes to coins.
