For example, an old Half-Crown coin from 1943 could potentially reach up to â‚¬4,500 on the market whereas a 1985 20p coin could fetch – get this – EIGHT THOUSAND EURO. There's more. A shilling coin from 1937 can range in value from â‚¬25 all the way up to â‚¬2,000 whereas a Half-Crown from 1937 is worth â‚¬4,000.
