I have a set of coins commemorating the centennial birthday of Dr Sun Yat sen. They have four coins , $5,$10,$50,$100.  Is it of any ant value nowadays? I also have a ancient coun from china, photos attached. Don't know much about it, got it from my father.

Answer
Hi,
The set you have is from Taiwan. I would assume it is in the original hard plastic case. This set is worth in the $50-$60 range.
As for the one pictured, that appears to be a charm rather than a coin. Unfortunately I do not know too much about Chinese charms, though some of them can be pretty valuable.

Expertise

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.
