We have found a silver coin amongst my parents' belongings

Customer Question

We have found a silver coin amongst my parents' belongings engraved Al Heroico Battalion de San Patricio and dated 1847 and are wondering if this is a collectors' item?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know where the coin is from?
Customer: Mexico we think
JA: What condition is the coin in?
Customer: Moderate I'd say - bit blackened on one side
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Don't think so

Hello. I am not an expert in coins but an antiques expert one of my books covers all collectible coins with their value. I found your coin and in 2018 was worth (bottom estimate) over £150. Today the price would be a bit higher, £180. King Regards.Joanna V.

Hello. I would contact Timeline auctions, it is the best auction in the UK selling coins, ancient artefacts, etc.. Send them an email with a photo. They are the best in UK. I highly reccomend them!
