Coin and Paper Money Collecting/20 para value

Question
hello sir,
i have different pieces of 20 para coins (year 1327-regnal year 6)
unfortunately they are pierced as they were used as ornaments in traditional costumes, could please tell me the average price for these coins.

thank you in advance/

Answer
Usually, unless the coin is very rare to begin with, when a coin is damaged in such a way, it is only worth the metal content.  I am not familiar with the 20 Para, if it isn't silver or gold, I would have to believe that the value is minimal.
