What is the value of an Asian coin with a sun on it?

I have been given an Asian coin that has a sun on it and I would like to convert it to American dollars.

Old Sri Lankan are nkown for having sun, moon and other astronomical symbols very commonly. Some of these date back to ancient times and must be worth a lot. There are also some modern Lankan coins from the SAF games etc which have a sun symbol.

Are you talking about an ancient coin or a present coin? If it's a present valid coin, then find out which country it belongs to - check out some coin pics from every country. I'm sure there's more on the coin than the sun - please share more details!


Answer by  light (200)

is it a historic coin? Then join a coin collectors forum on the web and post a pic and as for details. There are quite a few people who will tel you more details including country, age and value.

Many of these types of coins are worth more on the international market then in the United States. It sounds as if you have a fairly recent coin as many of the early coins had faces.

I am afraid that without more information no one will be able to help you. It could be a Japanese Yen (land of the rising sun). Yen is currently 143 yen = 1 US dollar. Or it could be from a now defunct government (South Vietnam, Tammor etc), if so it is valueless.

Please do tell us more - the color of the coin, any writings, any numbers, any country name mentioned, what language is printed (if you can decipher it), etc. Without these info it's a dead end!  add a comment
