Daniel S. writes: I found a $10 Bahamas Gold Coin, dated 1967. Can you tell me the gold content and is there any collector value?
The 1967 gold coinage of the Bahamas is very collectable. It combines low mintage, precious metal and historical significance. (It was just after Independence from Great Britain). The $10 coin has a bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right and a fortress on the reverse. It commemorates the adoption of a new constitution. Only 6,200 pieces were minted in uncirculated condition and only 850 proofs. The coin contains .1177 troy oz of gold.
