12-21 12-22Country: Sweden.
Year: 1884.

Type:  5 ORE.
World Coin Catalog: KM# 736.
Composition:  Bronze.

Another nice Swedish coin. Brodrafolkens Val means ‘welfare of the brother nations’ and it was changed by King Oscar II in 1906 to read Sveriges Val or ‘welfare of Sweden.’

As to value, many of these coins carry very little value especially in worn condition, but rise nicely when condition improves. Collectors are always looking for eye-pleasing coins to add to their collections. Worn out, damaged, or unappealing coins are passed over.

If you are a serious coin collector, there are several interesting minting varieties in this series, and values go up accordingly. For instance, an 1879 1 ore with lengthened legend catalogs over $300 in extra fine condition, and an 1894 2 ore with a closed 4 catalogs above $100 in extra fine condition.
