What Are Your Coins Really Worth?


Wondering what to invest in next? Term deposit at 4%? Maybe you'll go the property investment route, could get a return of about 10% a year if you're lucky?

What about an instant return of 4000% percent? How? Simple!

Make your own coins!

The government's been making a mint out of it! (Get it?)

But really, we thought it would be interesting to find out how much each coin is actually worth, and how many coins you could make per dollar of metals.

Think your 5 cent coin is worth 5 cents? How about that shiny $2 coin?

Is it really what it says it is?


Or has it been LYING TO YOU ALL THESE YEARS?!

NO WAY!?
